Boracay Summer 2014

Some of you would still agree to me the best beach destination in the Philippines during summer is Boracay. It is famous for being one of the world's top destinations for relaxation, offering white, powdery fine sand dotted, pristine water with resorts, shops, and restaurants.

Boracay is small island in the province of Aklan, Western Visayas, which is seven kilometers long, and less than a kilometer wide at its narrowest point. This island is originally home to the Ati tribe. It has two primary tourism beaches, White Beach and Bulabog Beach, which are located on opposite sides of the island's narrow central area.

The White Beach composes of three sections: Station 1, Station 2 and Station 3.It features a lot of hotels, resorts,  lodging houses, restaurants, shops, and other tourism-related businesses.

  1. For those of you backpackers reading, don't fret if the hotels seem a little more then you are wanting to pay for lodging. Over the years there have been so many various lodging options built. You can pay as low as 300p a night!! Just a tip;)!

  2. Wow! Great Post. Really informative :) I also enjoy my vacation in Boracay. Water Sports, Land Activities, Foods, amazing sunset and oh how can I forgot the nightlife in Boracay:) But I really look for a relaxing and peaceful place to stay and there I find The Orient Beach Boracay, its affordable, 5 mins ride to D'mall, its not hassle anyway because they have a free shuttle Service going to D'mall. It was also a Newly Opened Hotel, you can find great deals in many sites. Plus they serve really great Breakfast. it was also closer to the famous Puka Beach where you can find Puka Shells:) You just need to be familiar with the affordable prices in Boracay.

  3. Hi Boracay Guy, thanks for this wonderful tip.. hope to see you in Baracay
