Tacloban City Tour - Leyte, Philippines © Nathan Allen via @idreamedofthis

There is a tiny jungle trail to access it, and if you don't know exactly where it is, you could easily drive by the entire beach - without even knowing it's there. For this reason, Bonbon beach is a paradise you might get all to yourself...
