If you're reading this, you're probably asking yourself: Where do broken hearts go? And if you're looking for answers, let us remind you: It isn't the end of the world. Take a break and immerse yourself in nature. Below are some spots in the Philippines where you can go soul-searching over a weekend.

  1. Callao Cave, Cagayan Valley

    For those who want to spend a couple of hours hiking and exploring, this giant cave in Cagayan Valley has seven chambers. The chapel inside the second chamber provides a quiet spot for prayers

  2. Tigbauan, Iloilo

    While a family favorite hangout among locals, the coastal area of Iloilo remains relatively uncrowded. If you're flying to Iloilo with friends, you can rent a house in Bearland Resort in Tigbauan.

  3. Kawasan Falls, Cebu

    The sound of the water crashing to the basin sets the mood for meditation. Take a quick dip after to refresh yourself.

  4. Hundred Islands, Pangasinan

    Go for an island-hopping tour. The long boat rides in between each island should give you enough time to think and clear your head.

  5. Mt. Maynoba, Rizal

    The hike allows for ample time for you to focus on your journey, while the view of the sea of clouds from up above reminds you to be grateful. Freshen up in one of the many waterfalls you'll pass by during your descent.

  6. Potipot Island, Zambales

    You can do a little soul-searching on the boat ride to the island, or you can walk the entire circumference of the island in 30 minutes, just enough to clear your mind.

  7. Vigan, Ilocos Sur

    If heritage spots are your thing and you don't really mind crowds, go to Vigan and indulge yourself in Filipino culture.

  8. Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte

    Since this beach is a bit of a drive outside the city, the unpolluted atmosphere provides a clear and beautiful view of the stars at night.

  9. Dambana ng Kagitingan, Bataan

    Though it has become more crowded over the past few years, the viewing deck inside the famous cross at the Dambana ng Kagitingan remains a favorite for soul-searchers near Manila.

  10. Jomalig, Quezon


    The soft white sand and calming, clear blue waters of Jomalig is one of the reasons why tourists began flocking the island.
