Boracay (Philippines)

Boracay Travel Guide and Trip Resources


The Wandering Angel

Crystal clear waters and white sand beaches


Boracay is a small tropical beach island in the Philippines, located to the south (300+ kilometers or 200 miles) of Manila and just of the tip of Panay Island. It is famous for its stunning gorgeous white sand palm-tree lined beaches, crystal clear azure waters and dreamy sunsets. Boracay comfortably competes with the top beach destinations of Asia and the Caribbean.

OK, so the beaches are fantastic, which is kind of a given. But there are some other things that set Boracay apart. This is also a paradise for those that like to be a bite more active: scuba diving, kiteboarding, motorbiking, parasailing can all be on the menu here. And in the evening things really kick off here as Boracay is also a prime party destination.

One other thing to note is the availability of budget options: you can just as easily find a hotel here for USD100 per night as one for USD500. [Review by travelindicator]
