PHOTOS: Miss Universe candidates stay behind to bask in the Palawan and Cebu sunshine
It will make you want to hit the beach, too...or maybe the gym.
(SPOT.ph) It's been a week since the pageant, but some Miss Universe candidates have actually stayed behind to bask in the Philippines' sunshine—and our famous beaches, of course. Their lovely photos on Instagram are the perfect excuse to gear up for the gym or actually push through with all those getaway plans.
Take, for instance, Miss U.S. Virgin Islands Carolyn Carter, who happily explored Palawan:

We wish we looked like this sitting in a bikini, too
Carolyn wasn't the only beauty queen in Palawan; Miss Germany Johanna Acs was also enjoying the Palawan sunshine with her family.

We love that beachside view!
Meanwhile, Miss New Zealand Tania Dawson was having a blast in sunny Cebu.
