One of the best places being recommended for Miss Universe in Manila as potential out-of-town swimsuit shoot venue is Siargao Island (a tear-drop shaped island in the Philippine Sea situated 800 kilometers southeast of Manila in the province of Surigao del Norte). The place is known primarily as a surfers’ paradise. But the relatively unspoilt beauty and charm of its various islands make this a strong contender as backdrop for the clips of the candidates in their swimsuits. After all, if the country will be promoted heavily around the Universe, then the Department of Tourism might as well take advantage of giving the spotlight on the best places we can offer.
Siargao Island is definitely one of them.
