The Beauty and Popularity of Boracay

No doubt, Boracay is beautiful in the truest sense of the word. The powdery white sand, the crystal clear blue water, the beautiful sunshine, the cool breeze, the souvenir shops, the good food and for men... sexy bodies in bikini plus many more. This is why people won't stop going back to this place once they've experience it. You will no longer enjoy other beaches if they could not match the superb quality of this place. Boracay then has become too popular locally and internationally. Always expect roads to lead to this place once the heat of summer starts because local and foreign tourists prefer Boracay more than any other beaches in the Philippines.

Expect a Crowded Boracay During Peak Season

But there is one joy spoiler about Boracay. During peak season, it is definitely a very busy place with so much activities and too many people going around. It is not easy anymore to enjoy and savor the beauty of the beach. If then you are a person who loves privacy and tranquility you will not enjoy Boracay during peak season not unless you just stay in your hotel room which would be boring and not a wise idea. Why spend that much in going to a far place just to stay in a hotel room when there are nearer hotels anyway? So this is really one thing I hate about Boracay. It is too populated, too crowded during summertime.

Go Island Hopping To Avoid the Noisy Crowd

If you are caught in this predicament of too much crowd and activities around, this does not mean you will just let your vacation in Boracay to be spoiled. You can always try other options to make your vacation worthwhile. One very good option to avoid this crowd and enjoy the vacation at its fullest is by island hopping. You can always inquire from the hotel or from natives around if you want to avail of this. Island hopping is such a thrilling adventure that will cost you more or less $30. Quite cheap isn’t it? With this amount, a boatman will take your group to this amazing experience of sailing and exploring the islands around.

Pukka Beach, the Best in Island Hopping Experience

In my island hopping experience, what I truly enjoyed most was the Pukka Beach. The name pukka is actually derived from pukka shell which is abundant in this place. Oh well, I would say Pukka is still a virgin so amazingly beautiful. This is a paradise in the truest sense of the word. The pure nature around, the breeze, the tranquility gave me joy. There are no noisy crowds, though there are few other tourists around. This is a truly an enchanting place you would wish to own.

Pukka is a Piece of Heaven

It was like a piece of heaven on earth. That is the first time I’ve ever experienced such a marvelous natural world with glorious tranquility. As I listened to the relaxing sound of the placid wind and waves, I felt like I would want to stay there for the rest of my life. The seawater is at its clearest state and the sand at its whitest and finest. True enough I and my company could not stop admiring every corner that we see at Pukka. We could not help but shout with excitement. Words are not even enough to express the happiness its beauty brought into our senses.

Pukka Has no Facilities For Overnight Stay

It was sad when it was time for us to leave the Puka Island. We just bought some souvenir pukka necklaces from a vendor there at so that we can somehow have a tangible memory of that wonderful visit in that lovely island. How we wished we could stay longer but time was limited and the place had no facilities for overnight stay so we had no choice. We left with a promise to come back one day soon.
