The Philippines has a lot of beautiful historical sites, cities and great beaches that tourists should not miss. If you’re looking for a great beach with a nightlife, then Boracay is the place to be. Boracay boasts of talcum-fine white sand, superb amenities, and really great food.
The island of Boracay is famous for it’s four kilometer White Sand Beach, often referred to as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The beach is true to its name indeed; the sand in White Sand Beach is whiter and finer than most of the beaches in the archipelago. Almost everyone in the beach walks barefoot in order to enjoy the sand which makes you feel as if you’re walking on powder.
There are tons of activities you can do in Boracay. For adventure-seekers, Mambo Number 5 is their top choice – a combination of boating and wind surfing, scuba diving, trekking, mountain biking and golf. For those seeking a relaxing get-away, there are numerous spas and salons offering relaxing massages to soothe even the most tired muscle in one’s body, and restaurants serving great cuisine from all over the world.
At night, that’s when the real party starts. The island turns into one big party venue for dancing, drinking, and a whole lot of fun. Tourists can opt to listen to a classical guitarist or pianist while having a romantic candlelight dinner, or jam with several local bands while dancing on sandy grounds. Most of the big resorts and hotels in Boracay offer live entertainment, as there are also several bars and discos to spend evenings at. There are also 24-hour spots like Sea Lover’s – the oldest 24-hour place in Boracay which is a small Filipino restaurant perfect for that late meal or drink; the Salad Bar for a sandwich, salad or another drink; or the Bamboo Beach Resort for that really late last drink.
When going to Boracay, take advantage of online reservations and reserve early – most of the hotels and resorts are fully booked during summer.
