Boracay Island, Philippines- One of the Best Beaches in the World

white Beach, Boracay

If someone will ask you to jot down your personal choice of the World's Best Beaches, what would be on your list?... hmmmm maybe you will include a beach from Cancun? Grand Cayman? Jamaica? Dominican Republic? Maldives? Bora-bora? Hawaii? Pinoys are so proud that our Boracay is mostly on the top of the list. Hooray Boracay!!

Boracay is a small tropical paradise island in Aklan province in the Central Visayas region, Philippines. Measuring only at 4.5 miles long, it is world famous for its white powdery sand. 

White Beach is Boracay's most famous beach, 3 km of white fine sand, a home to so many resorts from backpacker to high-end hotels, restaurants, shopping malls,clubs , water /island activities, you name it they have it.

You wanna know why White Beach is the best beach in Boracay?? I won't say much about White Beach, this time let my pictures do the talking... 

The Beach:

The Sand

I have taken the following photos to compare the sand in Station 1 , 2 and 3.. (yeah I had that much time to walk from end to end.... Smiley sand at farthest part of station 3

The famous Boracay sunset:

I was there for 6 days and 5 nights in the month of October-November, my camera is always ready  for the famous sunset but alas!  if it's not raining it's cloudy! so these are the only pictures of sunset I was able to capture.. not much but I still love them..

People Watching:

I love watching kids, they're carefree and so innocent. Just watching them already relaxes me.. better than a spa!  Enjoy some of the shots I took of super cute kids:


I love the picture of this couple , I think they are newly weds! They're just so sweet!!And these 3 ladies showcasing their henna tattoo...


I took a lot of pictures of ladies in their bikinis, but nah I'm not going to post them here.. my facebook friends enjoyed their photos but sorry the only lady you will see here in her bikini is me.. hehe!Smiley



With is a special lady I met in Bora.. Tita Sonia!  We are both solo travellers..


The famous fire dance at Station 2:

Well Boracay offers so much more than White Beach, check my blog also of other must visit places/beaches in Boracay: 



How to  go to Boracay Island:

Take a flight to either Caticlan or Kalibo airport from major airports in the Philippines, there are so many airlines that offer cheap flights all the time (your options:  Seair, Zestair, Cebu Pacific, Philippine Airlines, AirPhil and AirAsia).  Land travel from Kalibo to Caticlan is at least an hour but the flight rates are of course cheaper.  Either way you can have a land  arrangement with your hotel or you can take public transport available direct to Caticlan’s jetty port.  At Boracay’s Cagban Jetty port, there are a lot of tricycles available that can send you to your hotel.  And the next thing you just have to do is relax and enjoy!

  24. I have lived on Tourism in Boracay for 15 years and loved the place so much i built cohiba. These are the Biggest and Best value for money apartments on the island period ! Every apartment has stunning sea views and 30m2 to 40m2 balconies with which to enjoy it. We are overlooking the windsurfing / kitesurfing bay where the season goes from November to april. Its either a great sport to participate, or great to just sit on your huge terrace and watch.Apartments in Boracay
