White Beach, Boracay and El Nido, Palawan among best Island Beaches
White Beach, Boracay and El Nido, Palawan have placed 2nd and 9th, respectively, in Condé Nast’s Traveler's 25 Best Island Beaches in the World: 2020 Readers' Choice Awards list.
Condé Nast released its list on Dec. 31, 2020. “For our 33rd annual Readers’ Choice Awards survey—yes, more than three decades—our readers leaned in heavily into nostalgia. With travel largely on pause this year, it seems what they may have missed most was a coveted beach vacation where they could get away from it all. Whether you're looking for a calm stretch of sand in the Caribbean or a family-friendly resort in the middle of the Indian Ocean, there are enough options out there to suit every type of traveler,” the publication said in its introduction.
The inclusion of El Nido and Boracay in the prestigious travel publication’s annual Readers’ Choice Awards recognizes their unparalleled beauty and uniquely diverse resources.
“We would like to thank the travelers who voted for our destinations. We draw inspiration from this warm reception and solid vote of confidence from our satisfied patrons. As our destinations gradually reopen with health and safety measures in place, we will continue our conservation and protection efforts of these areas,” Department of Tourism (DOT) Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said.
