    So if that sounds like a good idea to you, these are the beachside restaurants in the Philippines we definitely recommend:

They also have branches along Alona Beach in Bohol, Lio Beach in El Nido, Palawan, and soon in Cebu—making it as probably one of the favorite beachside restaurants in the Philippines.
