BORACAY

Boracay is a tropical island about an hour's flight from Manila. It has superb long white sand beaches and is one of the country's most developed tourist destinations.

For those wanting to just lounge around and take in some rays, beach-front hotels usually have lounge chairs set up just a few steps away from the hotel entrances. Facilities for the usual water sports activities such as sailing, wind surfing, snorkeling, diving and jet skiing are also widely available for those in search of more active pursuits. The fun in Boracay also doesn't end when the sun sets. Boracay nightlife is pulsating with many bars and restaurants serving food, drink and fun until the very late evening.

White Beach is what most people are here for. Not only is it a lovely stretch of powdery white sand against azure water, it's also the commercial center of the island. The long beach is divided into three sections, Station 1, Station 2, and Station 3. Station 1 is the northernmost and has the widest beachfront, where prime hotels and resorts are located. Station 2 is the commercial and geographical center of white beach. This is the center of it all for shopping, eating, partying, and etc. Station 3 is the southernmost section; quieter than station 2, it is the least developed. All of White Beach from the northernmost tip of Station 1 to the southernmost of Station 3 is open to the public, so one can relax and/or swim wherever they like, regardless of hotel location.

For those interested in scuba diving, there are dozens of dive centres along White Beach; it is a good place to learn or to improve your skills. There are 25-30 dive sites within 10–15 minutes speed boat ride from the beach, suitable for beginners up to advanced level. Dives range from 'Angol Point' (10m), through 'Crocodile Island' (22-25m), a straightforward wall dive, up to 'Yapak'- a deep wall dive suitable for only the most experienced divers due to strong currents.

Boracay's Bulabog beach claims to be the best kitesurfing destination in Asia. The season runs from November through to April with onshore winds varying between 12-30 knots. A small lagoon (2 km wide) is protected from waves by a coral reef. The water becomes almost flat at low tide, making it easy to start learning kitesurfing and continue with freestyle tricks.

Along White Beach, especially around Station 2, there is a wide variety of gift shops and boutiques along the beach path. D*Mall at Station 2 and D'talipapa at station 3, between the main road and White Beach, have many shops. D*Mall is larger but D'talipapa features a number of shops, vegetable merchants and a large meat market also selling a large selection of live seafood.
