A Week in the Island of Boracay sound so blissful and serene. Just the other day, we were dreaming of Tuscany. We must admit, Boracay is a location not originally on our travel radar, but thanks to Amy it is now. Enjoy!
Boracay is a small, tropical island located at the tip of Panay Island in the Visayas region. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Philippines because of its beautiful white sand beaches and clear blue waters. It was once a private retreat for travelers who wanted to get away and relax. Now, it has become a tourist hotspot rivaling some of the best beaches in the world. Both local and foreign tourists flock to this island yearly to indulge themselves in a few days of relaxation and fun.
Even before I was able to go to Boracay, I would constantly hear about this famous island on the news. Movie star sightings, Frisbee tournaments, club openings…it seemed like there was always something new and exciting happening in Boracay.
I was able to travel to Boracay two weeks ago. It was truly beautiful. It was all I ever hoped it would be. Sparkling white sand stretched on for miles and clear blue water reflected the bright morning sunlight as I strolled leisurely on the shore, with my camera slung across my shoulder. Every now and then I would stop to take snap shots of the view and the people walking around.

If you are searching for the perfect week long getaway, then you should definitely try this island. Aside from the world class beach, there are many other things you can enjoy. You can go snorkeling, skim boarding, wake boarding, parasailing and island hopping. Scuba divers love it here because Boracay is famous for its dive spots. There are about 30 dive spots around the island. The beach front of Boracay is also littered with stores and food stalls where you can buy souvenir items and snacks.
If you are into sports, you can also play Frisbee or volleyball on the beach. And if you get tired, there are masseurs along the beach that can give you a relaxing massage for an hour or two – for a minimal fee. At night that is when Boracay really comes to life. The many bars that line the beach side each have their own gimmicks to draw in customers. Some have live bands, others hold contests and there are those that serve promotional cocktails or unlimited beer.
I had so much fun in Boracay that after three days there (you should stay longer), I didn’t want to go home. The people were friendly, there were a lot of hotties – seriously, the food was to die for and there were so many things you could do. But don’t take my word for it. It’s better to experience it for yourself. Go see Boracay today!
