Crystal clear water and tropical sunshine await in Boracay
It's rimmed by coves and white sand beaches. White Beach is the hub of the island and a 5-kilometre sand strip with patrolled azure waters and watersports galore. There are dozens of dive sites within 10–15 minutes of the beach too. On the opposite side of Boracay, Bulabog Beach is the top Asian kitesurfing destination.
A plethora of shops, bars restaurants and about 300 resorts have been built on the island since the 1970s. Now the days and nights of the holiday makers here are punctuated by the hush of the waves and the clank of the cocktail shakers. For a glimpse off the main tourist path, consider a horse ride through the villages of the island or pop up to the beach on the northern tip of Boracay, Puka Beach. Most transport on the island is motorised tricycles. So whether you're seeking sun, sand or dance-'til dawn, a holiday in Boracay can deliver all.
