LIne

Boracay is a tropical small island in the Philippines located approximately 315 km south of Manila, Philippines. Boracay Island and its beaches have received awards from numerous travel publications and agencies. The island comprises the barangays of Manoc-Manoc, Balabag, and Yapak in the municipality of Malay, in Aklan Province. The island is administered by the Philippine Tourism Authority and the provincial government of Aklan. Apart from its white sand beaches, Boracay is also famous for being one of the world's top destinations for relaxation. It is also emerging among the top destinations for tranquility and nightlife. 

Famous for its beautiful white sand beaches, Boracay first showed up on the tourist map as a backpackers destination decades ago. Since then Boracay has grown so much in popularity that the original backpackers would probably not recognize it. This is not a terrible thing, however!

Boracay now has some of the finest hotels and resorts in the Philippines. It has also become home to amazing restaurants serving up authentic flavors from around the world. Boracay’s nightlife scene has also developed quite nicely. Bars and discos can be found up and down Boracay’s white beach, keeping the crowds partying till the early hours. In peak season Boracay hosts a wide range of international DJs playing to packed parties.

Boracay has also developed with respect to activities. Now each and every day can be packed with fun adventure. Scuba diving, parasailing, golfing, horseback riding, kiteboarding, and jet skiing are just a few of the many activities on Boracay.
