Party animal, adrenaline junky, outdoorsy, life of the party, loves meeting new people, and getting oneself out there — if you match the criteria, you are definitely an extrovert. If you are looking for the best places in the Philippines for your outgoing personality, here’s a list to help you out.
Where is the most popular beach party destination in the Philippines? Boracay, of course! It is the perfect place for people who love the beach and those who are into the party scene. Extroverts will absolutely enjoy the tourist vibe of the island and there are so many activities to do. From island hopping to helmet diving, there’s something for everyone.
2. Subic Bay
Subic Bay offers a lot of various activities especially for the outgoing. Dive under the ocean to discover shipwrecks and the diverse marine life, visit the newest Inflatable Island and enjoy the floating playground, and have lots of fun mingling with others at the many game and recreational centres.
3. Puerto Princesa, Palawan
Palawan is one of the hottest beach destinations in the Philippines and for all the good reasons. El Nido might have the best beaches in Palawan but Puerto Princesa also offers many gems like the Underground River. If you’re friendly enough, you might even come across other tourists and make new friends.
Cebu is another popular destination not only among Filipinos but also tourists around the world. It is one of the islands in the country that offer just about everything you will ever need. From sky diving and mountain climbing to canyoneering and bar hopping, Cebu is a haven for extroverts.

5. Bonifacio Global City (BGC)
BGC is dubbed as a high-end district in the metro partly because it is a financial district and you will see many companies that set up their offices and headquarters there. From the name itself, BGC is the go-to of many yuppies and non-yuppies who love the nightlife and those who wish to experience the “high” life. To add to that, BGC is also a great place to explore international cuisine.
6. Alona Beach, Bohol
If you are looking for a place that’s similar to Boracay but with less crowd and still have an awesome experience, visit Alona Beach in Panglao, Bohol. It’s a shorter stretch of white beach that has many options for activities and restaurants. Bohol is a really beautiful place that you shouldn’t miss when exploring the Philippines. You’ll get to see churches, astonishing views of the ocean, diverse animals, and many more!
7. Puerto Galera
Just three to four hours from Manila is the beautiful Puerto Galera in Mindoro. Ever tried riding a carabao taxi? Experience this and so much more in Puerto Galera. Visit the famous Tamaraw Falls and Takuran River. You can also join many group tours that can take you around the area. It’s a good way to meet new people and get yourself out there.
Say what? Yes, Baguio might be stereotyped as a destination for solo travellers who want to “heal their broken hearts,” but it is a really good place to meet new people and experience the local culture of the north. Baguio has a lot of artsy galleries, music bars, and even haunted houses. You’ll never run out of things to see and do!
