Boracay, not just an island but a Tropical Dream Vacation
Just an hour away by plane south of Manila, Boracay captures your heart in ways that go deeper than a mere holiday destination would.
Framed in turquoise water and set in gleaming white sand, Boracay is beloved by vacationers and international travel publications alike; in most people’s minds, Boracay has become synonymous with “the ideal tropical dream vacation.” This is because the island offers more than your usual beaches or vacation resorts.
The locals are friendly and accommodating and the atmosphere is rich and vibrant. The beachfront gives you tropical paradise while just a short walk away are the island homes of the island dwellers, a community welcoming you as soon as you step foot on the island. This is Filipino hospitality at its best, helping to make you feel at home as you enjoy all the island has to offer.
Boracay features a number of beaches and numerous resorts and restaurants. The two most famous beaches are White Beach and Bulabog Beach.
White Beach, a 4-kilometer stretch of powdery white sand, is the primary tourist beach. It is divided into three stations: Station 1, near the northern end, has several high-end resorts; Station 2, the most vibrant, is where most bars and shops are; and Station 3 is the most secluded but still within walking distance of everything. Station 3 has its share of exclusive resorts and bars. White Beach also has a stretch of establishments featuring an unprecedented variety of cuisines and cultures.
Bulabog Beach is at the other side of island, facing eastward. Prevailing winds from the east make the reef-protected water of this beach perfect for windsurfing and kiteboarding. White beach is sheltered from this wind though and is often glassy smooth.
Diniwid Beach, a rather secluded beach north of White Beach connects to the main beach through a foot path around the headland. Puka Beach, on the north tip of Boracay, is very quiet and free of commercial establishments. It is here that locals gather the small lovely shells sold as jewelry on White Beach. You can have a picnic here if you wish.
What to do…
Facilities are suited to all level of activities, whether lounging on the beach or taking up a variety of water sports activities, such as wind surfing, snorkeling, and jet skiing. Scuba-divers will enjoy dozens of dive spots around the island while those who wish to explore can go island-hopping on motorized bancas.
Mountain biking or riding small all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) across mountain roads are also gaining popularity, with both adults and children.
Or you may simply bask in the never-ending sunshine. But as soon as night falls, be sure to not to dream the night away as Boracay’s nightlife pulsates with many bars and restaurants serving food, drink, and fun until very late in the evening.
Boracay is also very child-safe and child-friendly, an excellent place for family and friends to frolic! Everyone in the island, from the locals to the resort staff, play a role in making sure everyone is safe and having a nice time.
When to go…
You’ll have a great time in Boracay whatever time of the year you decide to come. The island enjoys peak season around these times of the year, however: Christmas (December), New Year (January), Easter (March/April), Holy Week (March/April), and Chinese New Year (January/February). In general, heavy tourism is experienced during the Amihan Season (October-June), characterized by moderate to heavy sunshine, low rainfall, and prevailing wind from the east.
