Siargao appears to be summer's hottest beach destination these days.

Now that Boracay is temporarily closed, you're probably thinking where exactly you can spend those hard-earned vacation leaves and upcoming long weekends?

Well, you can always go somewhere you're familiar with, or if you're brave enough, explore new destinations this 2018.

Either way, there are other options for your fix of sand, sea, and sun.

Here are some suggestions on where to go and what to do.

The stars of GMA Network's The One That Got Away managed to squeeze in a little me-time while taping for the show in Zambales.

Meanwhile, the Bubble Gang girls visited the picturesque beaches of Ilocos Sur for the show's summer special.

There are a number of beautiful resorts you can stay in, but don't forget to visit Ilocos Sur's Calle Crisologo, Baluarte.

Pro-tip: Bring home some yummy empanada and garlicky longganisa to keep your stomach happy!

If you want to surf but don't want to travel all the way to Siargao, then head to Baler, Aurora!

We suggest you get a room at Sam Pinto's L'Sirene: A Boutique Resort and see how the former Sexiest Woman rides the waves.
