Further inland, Kawasan Falls is just a 45 minute drive away from Moalboal. The colour of the water is as vibrant as it looks in pictures and I spent an afternoon happily bathing in the waterfall’s pool.

Improved planning tools for family travellers- where to go, how to save money, plus fun stuff just for kids NEW top experiences feature- a visually inspiring collection of the Philippines best experiences and where to have them Pining for some relaxation? The Camotes Islands are remote and quiet. I was wowed by Mangodlong Paradise Beach Resort ’s affordable luxury, where I topped off the trip with afternoon massages and basking on their private beach that I managed to have all to myself! You might also like: November marks the return to high season with the arrival of good, dry weather for most of the country. Families laden with food gather at the local cemetery on the first day of the month to spend Todos los Santos (All Saints Day) remembering their departed loved ones. It’s a surprisingly festive occasion.

Fail #2: neglecting to study the weather

It’s the rainiest month (except for on the eastern seaboard, where it’s the driest), so you’ll get fabulous discounts on accommodation. Durian season begins in Mindanao and surf season launches in Siargao. The third week of August also sees Davao’s showcase its Muslim, Chinese and tribal influences during the Kadayawan sa Dabaw Festival with parades, performances, and fruit and flower displays.

Other stops that are open to visitors include Banol Beach, a small sandy area with shelter from the sun, and photogenic Twin Lagoon, one half of which is accessed by swimming through a narrow crevice. Picture this: jungle-clad pathways giving way to a stretch of white sand and a smattering of beachside bars looking out over turquoise waters. Yes, Moalboal really is this idyllic. For the best chance of beach lounging weather, head to the Eastern Visayas, which are often dry when almost everywhere else is drenched – though this region is susceptible to tropical storms so keep an eye on the forecast. January Over a decade ago, Cebu’s sardine run was reportedly non-existent, and their sudden appearance at Panagsama Beach is a mystery. Regardless, the Moalboal community have welcomed the effect their fishy friends have had in the area. No mass fishing is permitted, but local fisherman can use small wooden boats to fish with just a hook and line and the sardines have encouraged more people to visit the area each year.

Fail #1: buying into the fear factor

Cebu Island is the region’s heart – a favoured jumping-off point to its surrounding isles. Before setting sail, I made a beeline to Moalboal on the island’s western shores. After a (sweaty and slightly convoluted) local bus route from Cebu City , I was raring to get into the water. What is the sardine run? Cultural insightsgive you a richer, more rewarding travel experience - history, people, music, landscapes, wildlife, cuisine, politics If you’re seeking some earthly grounding after your aquatic pursuits, head to fun-loving Bohol for zip-lines and hiking thrills. A visit to this interesting isle wouldn’t be complete without meeting the world’s smallest primate in the Philippine Tarsier Sanctuary – as big-eyed and adorable as you’d imagine.

Everything shuts down during Holy Week, which leads up to Easter, when sinakulo (passion plays) and pasyon (a recitation of the Passion of Christ) are staged throughout the country. This is a fascinating time to be in the country, though resort prices again hit ‘superpeak’ levels, during what is the last month of the typical high season. For a less conventional Easter experience, head to the island of Siquijor, where faith healers and witch doctors gather around a big pot on Holy Saturday, preparing a medicinal concoction some say cures all that ails you.
