The Philippines usually have cream,white sand beaches..But this one is rarest of them all. This unspoiled beach off Matnog town, the southernmost tip of Luzon, is popular for fine grains of sand that have little specks of pink, prodding locals to also call it “Malarosa” or pinkish. To get to Subic Beach head to Matnog, to which buses offer direct 13-hour trips from Cubao or Pasay.
