Boracay Philippines, One Visit is Just Not Enough!
Boracay Philippines is a jewel in the Visayas. In fact to many, it is more than a jewel, it is the ultimate place to go to relax and unwind or to experience culture and a tropical island like no other in the world.
It is a big statement I know, but Boracay Philippines will captivate you and entice you into it’s secrets so that you will never be able to let go. The day you leave Boracay, you will vow to come back and like so many before you, coming back is exactly what you will do.
Where is Boracay Island?
Boracay is an island in the Western Visayas Region or Region 6. It is the most western island in the Western Visayas and can be found in the province of Aklan. It has borders to the north with the island province of Romblon and Mindoro to the North West. Boracay island itself lies off the north west tip of the island of Panay.
The island is shaped like a large dogs bone and is only seven kilometres long and in the middle of the island you will find it’s narrowest point, only one kilometre. The ends of Boracay Philippines, have rolling hills that meet cliffs that have been battered by the ocean for years on end, between these cliffs are quiet secluded beaches and coves, inviting visitors to relax and enjoy.
Boracay Communities or Barangays
A Barangay is the smallest administration unit in the Philippines.
Boracay Philippines has three Barangay’s:
1. Barangay Yapak is in the northern portion of Boracay Island, it is hilly and in some places 100 metres above sea level. 2. Barangay Balabag is in the lower lying middle section of Boracay Philippines. White beach with all its resorts are part of Yapak Barangay. This would be the hub of Boracay. 3. Barangay Manoc-Manoc is located, you guessed it, in the southern end of Boracay. Manoc-Manoc is not as commercialised as the other Barangay’s. It is a peaceful and quiet area and for those who are keen to take photos, you can catch some great images across to Caticlan on Panay.
Boracay has numerous activities, with the majority geared around the ocean and water sports. The western coastline is sheltered from the prevailing winds during most of the year, so it is nice and calm. It is also shallow and warm as a tepid bath. Extremely inviting. The eastern coastline is hit with some great winds that prove inviting for windsurfers, it is a windsurfers Mecca.
Boracay Philippines has everything you need, first class luxury accommodation through to backpacker style dormitory lodgings. Boracay caters for all, there is something here for everyone.
This will be a holiday to remember for life. It will be etched into your memory and will come and taunt you at your weakest moment. You will reflect on your photos and video footage and jump straight onto the internet and book your next trip.
The allure is all powerful, that is Boracay Philippines.
