Travel Special: Best Beach Getaway - Boracay, Philippines

Posted 5:56 AM by Unknown in Labels: , ,
Boracay is a paradise for certified sun worshipers all over the world. In fact, local and foreign tourists have made Boracay their yearly destination. Others have chosen to live on this haven.

Sheltered from the fierce easterly typhoons, 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.

Boracay's thousand hectares 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 upto 100 meters above sea level characterize Yapac 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. Truly Boracay has become the premiere destination of beach lovers around the globe.

Water Fun:
The Beaches beckons for some serious swimming, or just wading by the shore. For more active vacationers, wind surfing and parasailing gears are readily available. Go sailing with the help of locals acutely attuned to the rhythms of the sea.

Beach Combing:
There are over a dozen beaches dotting the islands. 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. Beer in hand, you can dance on the sand with a few brilliant fireflies. If this seems too rowdy for your taste, take a stroll on the moonlit beach.

Bat Caves:
Explore the bat caves of Yapak, preferably with an experienced guide and take photos of these night creatures.

Kar-Tir Seashell Museum:
Located at the village of Ilig iligan, Kar-Tir features an interesting collection of seashells, wood carvings, pottery, hand-woven articles, and traditional costumes from all over the Philippines.
