Boracay is an island located in the Province of Aklan in the Western Visayas region. It is approximately fifteen to twenty minutes away via boat ride from Caticlan Jetty Port. It has transformed from being a far-flung island to one of the well-known ultimate vacation destinations and party places in the country. Though Boracay has now become very touristy, a lot of people, both local and international tourists, still have it in their bucket lists.
Tourism began in Boracay as early as the 1970’s. Twenty years later, it became a household name in the Philippines and started to make a name for itself and got noticed by the rest of the world.
Boracay’s claim to fame was its clear turquoise waters, its uber-powdery white sand beach that stretches for kilometers as well as the gracious people inhabiting the island paradise. It has been named among the top beaches and most beautiful destinations in the world over the years. Why not? It’s truly deserving.
