just walk - boracay island

if you are not into water sports or any active activity, you can still enjoy the tropical island of Boracay. how can you do it? just walk.as the island is being flocked by a large number of both local and foreign tourists, a lot of business gained ground. from restaurants to beach shops, you'll find it there.walking within the central area of station 2 will lead you to the island's D'Mall. a mall that expands from the main beach area to Boracay's main road. dropping by those shops and looking at some of the items being sold is one popular activity in Boracay. in fact, a lot of people usually spend time strolling during noontime. the kids can enjoy the small ferris wheel found on the center of the mall area. one can buy shakes or juice drinks while walking.along the beach way, you'll enjoy looking at the different resorts and restaurants as well. at the end of the eastern side of station 2, one can also visit the D' Talipapa.you'll also see street vendors along the beach way selling fruits, miniature wooden boats, wooden crafts and even jewelries.all these makes this island very busy. so if you really want to spend time relaxing in this island, i should say that you stay on some of its remote beach resorts.

dave said...

haay, i remember the days when life was not as complicated before that week's stay in bora.. just walking along the shore... hehe... matagal na akong di nakabisita sa blog mo kuya dong.. so busy.

PUSANG-gala said...

I think the sand in bora is getting whiter and whiter through time. Have you tried scuba diving there Dom?.....I am just amazed where all those sands came from, it surely is because of rich coral reefs around the area. I wonder how diverse it is.......

takot kasi ako mag-scuba dive e....

Dylan Dimaubusan said...

wow!

photographer ka rin ba?

your photos are awesome, right from the start.

Heart of Rachel said...

When I was there with my friends, we enjoyed strolling around Boracay. There were so many things to see ... so many places to discover.

EM said...

I love long walks ... in nature, along the shores... it's a complete relaxation activity for me.

thanks for sharing

Mys Lyke Meeh said...

Phivos Nicolaides said...

Very nice!

Chyng said...

naloka din ako jan, may ferris wheel sa beach! amazing!

Chyng said...

And btw, ano pala name ng friend mong taga-Trend? (kaso 2007-2008 lang ako nagwork dun, baka di kame nag-abot)

dodongflores said...

I'm not much into Boracay because of its commercialization. I prefer most solemn places.

But your photos here made me want to go visit there again ;)

Nanaybelen said...

magandang mag-stroll pag pahapon na.

the donG said...

>hi ailee, you'll enjoy there. walking is one of the favorite activities in boracay.

>hi share, me too!

>jm, that's just one of the islands here. you still have to see 7,107 more.

>hi aquamarine, me too. exploring an island or a place makes me really excited. specially when it's my first time to be in that place.one of the best islands to explore is capones.

>borneo, yes. you'll definitely enjoy.

>dave, no problem. alam ko naman na busy ka. kakamiss na nga yung blog mo. oo ibang iba na nga ngayon ang boracay ayon sa marami. pero maganda pa rin naman.

>saling-pusa, oo kakagulat nga kung saan nangaling ang ganun karaming white sand. hindi ko pa nasubukan mag scuba dive. pero alam ko may mga dive sites din sa boracay. paborito ko ang snorkeling.

"I think the sand in bora is getting whiter and whiter through time.">>> i'm not sure.

>dylan, salamat. enthusiast pa lang. kailangan ko pang bumili ng DSLR para lubus-lubusang mag enjoy ng pagkuha ng mga picture.

>hi rachel, you're right. the beach alone already has about 4kilometers plus the shopping areas. a weekend there will not be enough.

>hi em, same with me. walking in boracay is one of the best activity.

>hi mys lyke meeh, yes. maganda talaga doon lalo na pag konti ang tao. sana makapunta ka. dami pa namang promo sa mga flights.

>phivos, true!

>hi chyng, maraming maraming salamat. yon din talaga ang goal ng mga posts dito. i wanted the readers to experience the place upclose.

yung friend ko si tim medina. parang hindi na nga kayo nag abot.

>dodong, maraming salamat!

>nanay belen, dahil medyo mababa na ang araw. dami ngang lumalabas sa mga resort pag late afternoon.

Aracir said...

hi dong. know what, from your posts so far, i realized i'm not a beach person hehehe (yung commercial beaches)

nice photos pa rin.

Lawstude said...

my kind of thing. walk, point and shoot.

Hilda said...

I hope it's not as crowded as Mindoro. That was a horrible experience for us! Talaga, the remoter the better. ;)

kegler747 said...

I love walking sa Boracay lalo na sa gabi at mahangin :) hehehe

teresa said...

eerrr,kelan ko kaya mararating to? hehe!

this blog never fails talaga to amaze me wid beautiful pics of beautiful places across the country.

parang gusto ko tuloy kumanta ng "tara na! biyahe tayo" lols!

the donG said...

>hi aracir, a lot of people prefer to go to semi-private beaches because they usually want a private time with their family.

>oman, hehehe... ganun nga ang mga byahero.

>hi hilda, when i was there, it was during the off peak season. so i cant say how crowded it can be during peak season. i believe it can be as busy as puerto galera and maybe even busier.

>kegler, oo nga. sarap maglakad, umupo sa isang tabi at magkwentuhan.

>hi teresa, hehehe... napakanta ka nga tuloy. maraming maraming salamat. natutuwa naman ako at nagugustuhan mo ang blog na to.

Victor Kiu said...

Blue Rose said...

yes, we enjoyed and explored the boracay by walking especially early in the morning. saya noh!

Sidney said...

I am not a beach lover but I don't say no to some days in Boracay... as you pointed out there are a lot of things you can do in Boracay.
Congratulations... you did a very detailed description of Boracay.

Miong said...

gillboard said...

i've never been to bora... but i do plan to go there sometime...

alicesg said...

Looked like a very cozy little village there. I think I prefer to hide in one of the eateries and tuck into the delicious local food...hehehe

Friendz said...

Raft3r said...

puro magagandang tsiks ang tanawin
hehe

REDLAN said...

marami ng nagtayoan na mga malls at resorts dyan sa bora as i can see the mga pics dito. okay pa rin mag gala kahit noontime dahil shady ang daanan. nakakamiss na ang bora!

tr3nta said...

NO ROADS!!!???.... SAND EVERYWHERE!!!!????

Thats paradise.... I love it!

cuteandsexysinglemom said...

oh...i miss bora...

Carver said...

Thank you for taking us on this picturesque walk. I think walking is one of the best ways to explore.

tikno said...

According to me you also have contribution in promoting the tourism potential for your country.

the donG said...

>blue rose, yes. saya nga pag umagang umaga kasi ang linis ng beach tsaka konti pa lang ang tao.

>sidney, you're right. if you just really explore the island, you'll have a good reason to visit despite its commercialization. thanks sid.

>miong, sakto bai!

>gillboard, hehehe... i recommend that one should really see it. lalo na pag pinoy ka kasi ang daming na eenganyong dayuhan na pumunta doon.

>alicesg, hahaha... a lot of people seem to do that.

>rajesh, you should. you'll definitely enjoy.

>raft3r, masaya talaga sa boracay. pero dami ding ayaw sa mga lugar na maraming tao.

>redlan, tama ka dyan. kaya ang saya maglakad sa beach way. buti talaga at naiwan ang mga puno kaya maraming shade.

>tr3nta, its just along the beach way and part of the mall area. but the beach is really wide.

>hi cutemom, me too even though i was there just a month ago.

>hi carver, walking will allow you to freely enjoy every view of the island.

>tikno, yes. this is one way of helping our country's tourism.

Chyng said...

Uhm, di ko nga kilala. Beside makonti lang kilala ko dun. hehe

carlotta said...

i enjoy walking anywhere. =)

btw, napansin mo ba yung little holes sa sand, dun sa daanan ng mga tao? that's a sign na may koreanang dumaan. naka-heels kasi kahit nasa beach. hehehe.

Pietro said...

Oh yes, Dong. I think the best thing for me should be just walking in those wonderful and relaxing places! I think I'd take a several hours stroll there!

Hi! I'm Grace said...

First class ba dyan, Dong? I can almost imagine myself walking barefoot... stress-buster :)

acey said...

sand's really white!!!

Eki Akhwan said...

This a wonderful place, Dong Ho. I like your previous post "We are meant to live alone". Not only are the pictures beautiful and well composed, the message is worthwhile.

Thanks for your frequent visits to my blog.

Ibang iba na talaga ang Boracay than the last time I've been there. Marami ng pagbabago!

prinsesamusang said...

nako di pa ko nakakapunta diyan ang ganda talaga!

KRIS JASPER said...

Imagine if they have a theme park in Bora...

sigh...

SandyCarlson said...

That definitely warmed my day! Thanks, friend.

(I have read that for some folks, walking is a form of prayer. I believe it to be so. Your walks come through as such through your images.)

rheiboy17 said...

ang tagal ko ng hindi nakapunta ng boracay. 8 years na rin! ibang iba na sa boracay na nasa isip ko. parang gusto ko tuloy bumisita.

Rochelle said...

This one place I promised I would take my husband if he ever comes to the Philippines with me. It's so beautiful here! Great pics!!

Dennis Villegas said...

wlaking is best to tour Bora indeed! thanks for the wonderful bora pictures!

Abaniko said...

To maintain the allure of Boracay, here's hoping they won't allow this beautiful resort to be converted into a heavily commercial area. For instance, sana walang structure ng ferris wheel sa Boracay. For me, it's an eye sore.

paperdoll said...

nasa bora ka pa rin? lol

magkano ba ngayon ang fare jan from manila pag hindi pinkseason?

Bryan Anthony the First said...

dami ba cute boys?

Maya said...

You just intensify my longing to go back home.

I've been checking cheaper way to stay in boracay with my family this upcoming summer, if possible.

I want my kids to see how beautiful their country is.And you made it really shine.

Thanks,Dong. i'll show the skimboarding to my son later.

Aethen said...
