Various beaches were scattered all over the shores of the Philippine archipelago and continuously lures tourists from within and outside the country.  Crystal clear waters, fine white sands and many magnificent types of scenery were promised by these.  But, infamous beaches like Boracay Island have an undeniable problem when it comes to their natural aspect.

 Because of their popularity, nationally or globally recognized beaches were crowded up by people distorting the areas’ natural beauty.  Man-made structures were built all around these beaches and various artificial innovations were done.  But, far away from the main cities of the country hides uniquely secluded islands that quietly cradle the peacefulness of nature away from the destructive hands of man.
