FEATURED DESTINATION: BORACAY


 

 

Boracay is paradise for certified sun-worshippers all over the world. In fact, local and foreign tourists have made Boracay their yearly destination. Others have chosen to live on this haven.

Boracay can be found on the northwestern tip of Panay in Aklan, a province on the Visayas island known for its colorful Ati-Atihan festival.

Boracay's thousand-hectares boast of all the elements of a tropical heaven - crystal blue waters, powder white sand, liberal doses of tropical palms and flowering plants, and a healthy and diverse marine life.

Boracay has three little communities - Yapak in the north, Manoc-Manoc in the south and Balabag in between. Hilly elevations of up to 100 meters above sea level characterize Yapak and Manoc-Manoc. Intertwining trails link the small villages and lead to lush tropical jungles.

The culinary fare at Boracay is as diverse as the nationalities of its visitors. French, Chinese, Australian, Belgian, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, and Thai - are all fused into the native cuisine. Truly, Boracay, has become the premiere destination of beach lovers around the globe.

Water Fun
The beach beckons for some serious swimming, or just wading by the shore. For more active vacationers, windsurfing and parasailing gears are readily available. Go sailing with the help of locals acutely attuned to the rhythms of the sea.

Beach Combing
There are over a dozen beaches dotting the islands: White Beach, Diniwid, Alinghai Beach, Manoc-manoc Beach, and Cagban Beach, among others. Work on your tan, read a book, relax and have a massage. White Beach, probably the most famous stretch in the country, features bright, fine sand and clear, shallow waters.

Nightlife
Spend the last hours of the day at any of Boracay's bars and discos. Beer in hand, you can dance on the sand with brilliant fireflies. If this seems too rowdy for your taste, take a stroll on the moonlit beach.

Bat Caves
Explore the bat caves of Yapak, preferably with an experienced guide and take photos of these night creatures.

Kar-Tir Seashell Museum
Located at the village of Ilig-iligan, Kar-Tir features an interesting collection of seashells, woodcarvings, pottery, hand-woven articles, and traditional costumes from all over the Philippines.
