ten reasons why i love boracay

in ending the boracay series, let me give you ten reason why i love this island. TEN >>> accessibility. the island of Boracay has one of the most number of flights within the Philippines. you can drive your way from Manila to Caticlan thru the RORO (Roll-On-Roll-Off) system or take a road trip from Iloilo to Caticlan. when you reach the Caticlan Jetti port, it has a very good system of having a centralized boat system ride. motor boats only dock at one port in Boracay which means the main beach will have less motor boats giving more space for beach bums. NINE >>> accommodations. one can enjoy and have options of hotels, villas, condominiums and cheap lodging houses. you have the option to choose hotels based on its location as you might want a semi-private area or on places where people flock. EIGHT >>> beach activities. name a beach activity and you'll find it in Boracay. almost all the sports and beach activities are available there. you'll enjoy kayaking when the sea is calm. scuba diving and snorkeling areas are just within the area of the island. parasailing, kiteboarding, skimboarding are becoming more popular. your weekend is not enough to try all these. SEVEN >>> sunset. the sun displays it's golden beauty on a good weather making it a very popular scene in the island. to me sunset in Boracay symbolizes the start of the party the people awaits in the island. sunrise is beautiful as well on the other side of the island.SIX >>> nightlife. one might sometimes think that the island is busier at night than in the morning as people go out and hop from dining restaurants to coffee shops. others just stroll and have some great time chatting along the beach while listening to the different bands playing from the bars.FIVE >>> the people. you'll see people from other countries coming to the Philippines just to see this beach. but as much as foreigners flock this beach, Filipinos enjoy it as well. sometimes i really wonder if Boracay is more popular than Manila in the world. FOUR >>> anything. anything. you can find almost anything there. banks, internet cafes, mall, small beach shops, sea food straight from the wet market, international golf course or ice cold shakes. it's all there.THREE >>> sands. the fine white powdery sands in the island are among the best in the Philippines. you won't believe that just walking along the beach shore by foot can be the best thing one can do in Boracay. it's simply because of the sands.TWO >>> white long stretch beach. having fine white powdery sand is already enticing but having four kilometers of that is more than enough. one needs enough rest to walk from end to end. try it.ONE >>> it's a big island. i thought Boracay is small but not when i was already there. Boracay is not only the central beach. it's the whole island. it has other coves that offers a more private mood. i recommend that you explore, explore and explore. try Puka beach or Lapus Lapus beach or just behind the rocky cliffs beach of Diniwid. island hop! drive ATVs or cycle your way around the island. it can be a perfect activity for those who are staying there for more than a weekend.so if you'll ask me if i'm going back to Boracay? definitely. of the four days and three nights that i was there, i can say that there's still a lot of reason why i need to be there again and again and again.

sheng said...

dong, I love your list, it speaks for me too, now there, you're making me love Bora all the more when I really am not so fond of the place before, for me it is too commercialized but whew, I guess I miss Bora!

Bry said...

I Love the Sunset... Activities and Night Life...

Oh I forgot to mention, the YELLOW CAB Boat. New York's finest delivered thru a boat! Astig! Hahahaha


MERRY CHRISTMAS, the DONG :)

Dong, if time will come that we will have the chance for me and my family to go to Boracay, can I ask you some assistance then? I mean, about what we need to know...

gillboard said...

Jinjiruks said...

Abaniko said...

You forgot food - a wide variety of them in the island. Of course, the nightlife is one of the main attractions of Boracay aside from its beach.

PUSANG-gala said...

Bora is just a complete package , a paradise, a refuge. You can isolate yourself and still not too worried that your away from civilization just in case you want to go back......

Luke Wiley said...

We have a couple feet of snow at my house, I want to be there!

You captured Boracay sceneries at it's best. I should visit again Boracay too in the near future not because of the mall and the night life activity but only for the sand and the sunset...

It was my first time to go to Bora last April and yes, I loved the island for those reasons too! :) Most especially the sand, the beach, the foodtrips.. and the sunsets. ^_^

Boracay is a tropical paradise in the Philippine islands. I can give a hundred reasons why I love it.

pimalai said...

Agreed on all points. Those are the very same reasons I keep coming back to Boracay.

broome accommodation said...

As unfortunate as it is, I have never been fortunate enough to have visited Boracay yet. Pictures like that just keep reminding me on what I've been missing out and make my urge to go visit grow even more.

KT's lifestyle said...

I will go to Boracay again. I blog about it too.

Ten is definitely not enough why you will love Boracay. You will appreciate everything you see in the paradise island, and every moment is LIFE.

Vacasyonista said...

Masarap tlga sa boracay. I think it may be my favorite beach destination in the Philippines.

What I love about it:
1. White powder-like sand
2. Great variety of food
3. Great variety of hotels to choose from.
4. Lots of good-looking people
5. Nightlife
