Summer has finally begun in our side of the world. Last March 4-6, 2013, my friends and I went to Boracay. This small island by the way is located approximately 315 km (196 mi) south of Manila and 2 km off the northwest tip of Panay Island in the Western Visayas region of the Philippines. Boracay Island and its beaches have received awards from numerous travel publications and agencies. The island comprises the barangays of Manoc-Manoc, Balabag, and Yapak municipality of Malay, province of Aklan. The island is administered by the Philippine Tourism Authority and the provincial government of Aklan. Apart from its white sand beaches, Boracay is also famous for being one of the world’s top destination for relaxation. It is also emerging among the top destinations for tranquility and nightlife. In 2012, Boracay was awarded as the best island in the world from the international travel magazine Travel + Leisure.
Beach trip is not complete without hats. I first picked out the brown one.
But the blue one best suits my attire.
My first time in the island and I find it so lovely. The sand is pure, white and powdery. No wonder a lot of tourists visit here.
She is just too cute.
We stayed at La Oviedo located at Station 2.
There are a lot of activities to choose from. You can go diving, kite surfing, parasailing, helmet diving, banana boat and a lot more. We chose parasailing, island hopping and helmet diving.
After these activities, you can go bar hopping at night, or simply feed your tummy and go shopping.
A must visit place in the Philippines. Best time to come here is summer of course (March – May).
