Sarangani Bay, it has white bounty beaches, blue, open waters, many coconut palm trees and is only a small part of a tropical island paradise in a country often named the pearl of the Orient. The coastal province of Sarangani is located in the southernmost tip of the island of Mindanao in the Philippines. The 230-kilometer, idyllic shoreline offers prime white beaches that face the tranquil waters of the Celebes Sea. The Sarangani Bay area is a popular scuba-diving and snorkelling destination providing diving-sites with shipwrecks that go way back to the Spanish colonization. Numerous local tourists come to Sarangani Bay because the beautiful and fine white-sand beaches are amongst the finest in the Philippines, clean and appealing with splendid beach resorts, undeveloped coves, rock formations and mythical caves. These beaches are one of the few undiscovered places that have escaped the clutches of mass tourism.
