Traveling from one island to another can ultimately feel draining. Fortunately, tour groups offer a stop on a quaint, little beach, Smith Beach, for a little lunch and recreation.
Albeit small, Smith Beach is a perfect stop for weary travelers — it’s like a little paradise in the middle of the sea. Several huts are built all over the area that offers tourists a place to enjoy lunch and take in the beautiful view of the sea and the rock formations. The cool sea breeze and the sweet serenade of rushing waves can be oddly rejuvenating. After lunch, you can proceed to the pristine waters and take a quick dip before venturing for another island hopping adventure.
Smith Beach is located in Busuanga, Coron, Palawan.
