The Philippines, being a country archipelago of islands and seas, have naturally wonderful beaches, some of which are famous the world over.
Beaches like Puerto Galera, Boracay, and the various beaches in Cebu rake in tourists from around the world all year round because of their pristine and cool blue waters and fine, white-sand shores.
Architecture and Travel Industry Management are both distinctive schools that play a crucial role in the state's economy and culture," UH Manoa Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Reed Dasenbrock said in a statement.
"When these searches are completed by the end of the academic year, academic units at Mānoa will have strong permanent leadership across the board." Vance Roley, dean of the Shidler College of Business, will chair the search committee for the architecture position, while College of Education Dean Donald Young will chair the TIM school search.
There is also the White Beach that, as its name suggests, is a stretch of white sand beach just minutes southeast of the seaport. The clear, deep, blue waters (even during low tides) are excellent for swimming and diving.
The Bomba Beach, located in barangay Bomba some 2 kilometers away from the city, is also a good area for swimming and fishing, with a bomba bridge and natural coral reefs.
The Muricay Beach is located further away, at 4 kilometers, but the white sands and clear seas more than make up for the distance.
There are also mangrove tracts and seaweed plantations nearby, for those who are interested in such plant specimens.
A nice place to start would be the Dao-Dao Islands some seven to ten minutes away from the seaport, when riding a motorboat.
It is a rather big island, with an area size of about 1.1057 hectares.
However, if one will just look around more, they will find that there are other less-known but equally beautiful beach spots in other parts of the Philippines.
