Zamboanga is the gateway to the untouched islands and mountains in southwest Philippines.

Down south, Great Santa Cruz Island located off the coast of Zamboanga City offers a rare treat to visitors. It’s one of the few islands in the Philippines with a rare pink beach! It only takes less than 20 minutes to reach by boat from the city center.

Touchdown at Zamboanga International Airport (ZAM). You can hire a boat to get to Great Santa Cruz Island from Paseo del Mar in Zamboanga City center.
