World’s Best Beaches
Consistently rated by numerous travel publications as being the best island or having the best beaches in the world, it is a true gem. There are two main beaches which are frequented by tourists to the island, Bulabog Beach and White Beach. These beaches are affected by climate and weather, so when the wind blows from the east, White Beach will have water as smooth as glass, perfect for snorkeling.
Both of these beaches have miles of white sand, palm trees and crystal clear turquoise water. Along the back edge of the beaches are paths which lead to a number of hotels, food establishments and bars. For those who love water sports, especially windsurfing and kiteboarding, Bulabog Beach is the place to be.
Leisure is the Name of the Game
Most people come to a place like Boracay to simply relax. But, if all that relaxing leads to the need to get out and be active, Boracay can take care of that as well. Beyond all the beach activities like sailing, windsurfing, diving and snorkeling, there are other things to do available on the island as well.
One other activity would be golf. Boracay is home to a beautiful 72 hole course that was designed by noted golf course architect Graham Marsh. Of course, the island is also home to a number of different restaurants and bars which service many of the visitors as well as some locals.
