Boracay: the paradise for beach lover

The Philippines is composed of more than 7,100 islands and it means that we also have the most number of beaches in the world. One of the most popular is the Boracay Island. A place where you can witness the beautiful creation of God.

"Boracay is a small island of the Philippines 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. Administered by Philippine Tourism Authority and the provincial government of Aklan.

In 2012, Boracay has been named the Best Island in the World by an international travel magazine, Travel + Leisure."

The Boracay Dream

Since I was child I always dream of going to this place. I place where I only see in TV ads, poster and movies. I admire this place because of its exquisite beauty and fine sand. So I made a promise to myself that when the time come that I can afford to go there I will surely make an annual visit to that place. So let me share to you my personal experience visiting this very beautiful place in the Philippines.

The Boracay Experience

We booked our flight from Air Philippines going to Kalibo International Airport. Upon arrival at the airport we ride a van going to Caticlan Jetty Port which will take us to the Boracay Island. The travel time from Kalibo to Caticlan was about 2hours. So if you will be planning to arrive at the Kalibo International Airport you may also consider the time travelling going to Caticlan. There is also another airport nearer in Boracay which is the Caticlan Airport. It can only accommodate smaller planes that why we decided to go to Kalibo Internation Airport, well that's my personal choice though because I don't want to ride in a small planes I'm scared hehe.

When we arrived at the Caticlan Jetty Port we ride a ferry going to the Boracay Island. This is just a 15-30mins ride across the two islands. We stayed at Frendz Resort Boracay a small resort situated between the Station 1 and Station 2 of the island. On my next hub I will create an exclusive review about this resort and tell you my story on why did we opt to stay in the resort.

We stayed in Boracay for 3 days and 2 nights, our entire trip was fun-filled activity and lots of good memories. I manage to take some photos of the place and I hope that you will also appreciate it.

      Alejandro, your photos of this island are beautiful. I did not know that the Phillipines were a series of islands. I am way too old now to have not known this -- no excuse for it! Well, you have taught me much here today. Thank you for sharing this history.
