Highlights

With so many islands to explore, all offering different activities and experiences, Muslim travellers will find themselves as busy as can be exploring the Philippines. The new Boracay is a must visit for Muslim couples looking to enjoy a halal honeymoon, or those travelling with their family looking for a beach hideaway. There are plenty more beaches to explore, just as there’s the Filipino cuisine to tuck into, and the Filipino people to get to know. The Philippines is also home to the Banaue Rice Terraces, which gives you a ‘Bali’ feel. It’s here you’ll get to discover the beautiful scenery as you explore the Muslim friendly destination even more.  
 
 
If you’re an adventurous Muslim traveller looking to explore nature in the Philippines, then catching a glimpse of the active Mayon Volcano is a must! The volcano has picked up the nickname “Perfect Cone” due to its symmetrical cone shape and provides breathtaking scenery. For Muslim couples hoping to embark on a beach holiday, Palawan is another must visit. Ideal for both family friendly activities, and those in search of private villas in some of the most secluded islands and parts of the Philippines. The Philippines in general is a fun and exciting halal holiday destination with so much culture to offer, yet it’s the warm and friendly Filipino people that will be the cherry on top of your stay.

Muslim Friendly Amenities

Whether you’re looking for fine dining or street food, the Philippines has a selection of Filipino halal cuisine for Muslim travellers to enjoy. Complete your holiday and tuck into the mouthwatering Filipino cuisine at Hossein’s, the Marriott Café, or Mister Kebab. There are Muslim friendly restaurants offering halal cuisine, and the friendly Filipino people will happily point you in the right direction 

 
 
While there aren’t as many mosques in the Philippines, there are still a few worth visiting. A few notable mosques include the Grand Mosque (Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah Masjid) in Cotabato City, the Taluksangay Mosque in Zamboanga City and the Pink Mosque (Masjid Dimaukom) in Datu Saudi Ampatuan, Maguindanao.  Muslim travellers will enjoy the travel options in the Philippines, especially when it comes to visiting the neighbouring islands. While island hopping or catching a boat may be cheaper, it’s a lot more time-consuming. For Muslim couples that are strapped for time, plan out your destination choices beforehand and your mode of travel.
