Dream Destination: Amanpulo - Palawan, Philippines

I'm lucky enough that my parents are from the Philippines, an archipelago that consists of over 7000 islands, which means there is a wealth of beaches to choose from.

The thing is when we go back to the Philippines,  I only ever visit the region that my parents are from - which is Pampanga if you are interested.

So out of the 7000 islands, I have only visited one. Shame on me. As I have grown up I've realised how much of the Philippines I am missing out on.

Boracay is probably the most well known island in Philippines. Its blue skies, crystal waters, and white sands are popular both with Filipinos and tourists.

There are however other hidden gems...

Last year I learnt of Amanpulo (Aman Resorts) situated on the secluded island of Pamalican in Palawan. Let me be clear, I have NOT been here, but OMG I WANT TO! It looks like the screen savers and desktops aptly named 'paradise'  that come pre-installed on computers.

I'd already heard some amazing things about the beaches and islands in Palawan; how beautiful they are yadda yadda, so I didn't expect anything less from Amanpulo.

When I saw the brochure my heart did a little flip and I could almost feel the sun on my face. Almost.  Just look at the pictures...

So, the next time I go to the Philippines I want to go here, you know for research purposes so I can tell you all about it of course and Mr B can take lots of lovely pictures.

It's most certainly not cheap to stay here, but judging the accommodation and surroundings it would be worth it.

Let's look at more pics:

Cocktails on the beach? Yes Please!
Haven't had enough of looking at Amanpulo, have a look at actual visitors photos and reviews on Trip Advisor.  Enjoy!
