Aside from enjoying the view and taking a dip in the waters of beautiful beaches, do you like walking barefoot and feeling the sand on your toes? Not all amazing beaches are equally amazing for your feet, so below is a list of some beautiful and barefoot-friendly beaches.


Over one kilometer of powder-fine white sand hemmed in by bright green hills, and waters so clear and blues and so vivid they almost look unreal – you have to see it to believe it.

Pitch a tent, dig your toes into the soft sand, and drink in the view of whites, greens, and blues. Walk the entire length of sand barefoot to take in the entire view. And, if you want the beach to yourself or would at least prefer to avoid the crowds, go on a weekday.

How to get there: Take a bus to Daet from Cubao or Pasay. Get off at Talobatib Junction and take a tricycle to the town of Paracale. Travel time from Manila is 7-8 hours. From Paracale, you can charter a boat to Calaguas, though it is best to make arrangements ahead. Boat ride can take one hour or more.
