| Puka Shell Beach at Boracay Island
Boracay can be found on the northwestern tip of Panay in Aklan, a province on the Visayas island known for its colorful
Ati-Atihan festival. It boast of all the elements of a tropical heaven: crystal blue waters, powder white sand, liberal
doses of tropical palms and flowering plants, and a healthy and diverse marine life.
Boracay has three little communities; Yapak in the north, Balabag in the middle, and Manoc-manoc in the south. Hilly
elevations of up to 100 meters above sea level characterize Yapak and Manoc-manoc. Intertwining trails link the small
villages and may sometimes lead to lush tropical jungles.
The culinary fare at Boracay is as diverse as the nationalities of its visitors. French, Chinese, Australian, Belgian,
German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, and Thai are all fused into the native cuisine. The foreign investors
found a way to do business in this treasure of an island. They put up restaurants, bars and specialty stores catering
to locals and tourist alike.
|Enjoy Sun Bathing at Boracay
Boracay beach beckons for some serious swimming, or just wading by the shore. For more active vacationers, windsurfing,
kite surfing (new) and parasailing gears are readily available.
There are over a dozen beaches dotting Boracay island: White Beach, Diniwid, Alinghai Beach, Manoc-manoc Beach, and
Cagban Beach, among others. Work on your tan, read a book, relax and have a massage. White Beach, probably the most
famous stretch in the country, features bright, fine sand and clear, shallow waters.
Spend the last hours of the day at any of Boracay's bars and discos. A good drink in hand while dancing on the sand
