Boracay

Boracay

In the Western Visayas Region of the Philippines and off the coast of Aklan Province, lies a small island called Boracay. Don’t let the small size of this island fool you. Boracay is not only the home of the world-famous White Beach, but also to colossal beachfront parties, rich marine life, exciting festivals, and relaxing massages. This tropical escape is only a 50-minute plane ride from Manila, making it one of the top island destinations for both foreigners and locals.

Numerous hotels, inns, and resorts line Boracay’s pristine shoreline. The wide variety of lodging options makes this destination friendly to all budgets, whether you’re stinking rich or stinking from backpacking.

Commercial centers and shops hawking everything from Boracay themed t-shirts to fresh fish, restaurants, nightclubs, and bars fill up the rest of the island, making Boracay a great place to explore both during the day and at night. Getting around isn’t difficult with the many tricycles that scout the island for passengers. Exploring on foot is also a great option, with the beach being a walkable 7 kilometers in length.

The waters surrounding the island hold much treasure as well, for Boracay is loaded with activities like parasailing, jet-skiing, snorkeling, and island hopping. After this kind of non-stop action, nothing sounds better than ending the day with a calming massage at a spa or massage station, which, in Boracay, are about as common as bikinis.

Summer time in Boracay, which is from April to May, is filled with festivals and competitions such as the Dragon Boat Festival and the International Beach Volleyball Tournament. Events like the Ati-Atihan Festival are held in early January, which can add some cultural spice to your vacation. Only in Boracay can you choose to get chill or be thrilled— all in one place.
