Lubang Island Travel Guide

Lubang Island
There are some places in the Philippines that are nearly impossible to get into. Hardest-to-get-to destinations whose sheer beauty make them worth often challenging journeys, one of this is an island which lies to the northwest of the northern end of Mindoro in the Philippines.


Lubang Island piqued my interest upon looking on the map just last year. Beyond the mountains where a Japanese straggler hid for 30 years after World War II, white sand beaches, coral islets and underwater wonders beckon to the weary soul. This island is a perfect place for a hideaway, there must be more to this place than just the infamous beaches. So I set a trip a couple of weeks back and explored this beautiful island for 3 days. From Manila to Lubang — read on and take a closer peek!


Finally crossed out Lubang in my bucket lists: A destination like no other close to being heaven on earth. The place is so serene with stunning sunsets, white star-sand beaches, and the people are so warm and friendly.

Why it's worth it?

Located at the northern end of Mindoro, not far from Batangas, rich in natural wonders, forests and wild species, Lubang is an immense and breathtaking area of natural beauty. Many people, however, spend the majority of their stay here simply kicking back in a chair with a drink in hand and soaking in the grandeur of creation.

Don't Miss.

Have you ever been lying on your beach blanket, watching the sun set and the first stars come out, and dreamed about spending the night right there on the beach? #ChooseLubang
