(L-R) Jericho Rosales, Kathryn Bernardo, Daniel Padilla, and Maymay Entrata all love going to the beach.


Each time celebrities need to take some time off from their busy life in showbiz, they head to their favorite beach, and bask in the sunshine.

Indeed, everything—from the sound of the breeze to the waves—about the sea has a calming effect.

We can fully understand Lovi Poe when she said, "It's where I find my inner peace."

Even Jinkee Pacquiao, with all her hotel-like and resort-looking mansions, referred to their beach property in Sarangani as her "happy place" many times.

But guess what's on top of the celebrities' beach destinations this 2019?

SIARGAO 

Yup, Siargao has captivated a lot of stars, to name a few, Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera...

...Paul Soriano and Toni Gonzaga.

Some, like beauty queen Rachel Peters and vocalist Champ Lui-Pio, picked it as the location of their business ventures.

Andi Eigenmann, for her part, now calls it her home.

Known worldwide for its white-sand stretch of beach, the virgin islands surrounding it, and its around 15 surfing breaks, it was recently hailed as the world's best island by luxury travel magazine, Conde Nast Traveler.

PALAWAN

This archipelagic province found on the western edge of the country has enchanted both local and Hollywood celebrities.

Rachel Weisz fell in love with it that in 2012, the year they shot Bourne Legacy in the Philippines, she remarked, "I can live in Palawan forever!"

Derek Ramsay, Dimples Romana, and Katrina Halili all have a property here.

Its stunning sights include Amanpulo, Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, Bacuit Bay Islands, Kayangan Lake, Small Lagoon, Culion Island, Iwahig Ecotourism and Wildlife Park, and Port Baton among mnay others.

BALESIN ISLAND CLUB

From Manila, you will reach this 500-hectare paradise by plane for 25 minutes.

Since it opened in 2012, this members-only island (membership fee costs PHP3 million!) has become the go-to place of Heart Evangelista.

Ogie Alcasid and Regine Velasquez like spending their holidays here, too.

It also served as the wedding venue of Heart and Governor Chiz Escudero, Cristine Reyes and Ali Khatibi, Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia, among others.

BALER 

Baler is an all-around recreational spot for celebrities because of its surf spots and rich historical attractions.

Located in Aurora, it can be reached through a five-hour travel by land.

One of its popular resorts, the L'Sirene Boutique Resort, is owned by Sam Pinto.

Glaiza de Castro and Andi Eigenmann also built their houses here.
