Boracay is a small island of the Philippines located an hour away of a plane ride from Manila, the capital of the country.
It’s also a very famous destination in the Philippines for whoever would like to enjoy a dreamy beach and the activities (cliff jumping, islands hopping, snorkelling…) the place has to offer.
So, I compiled 17 of my favourite photos that will definitely inspire you to visit Boracay and learn more about the island.
17 Photos To Inspire You Visit Boracay
I spent 3 days in Boracay with my friends at the end of January. Needless to say that when you arrive from a cold a grey Paris it’s pretty dreamy.
I love Paris in winter
Granted 3 days only in this dreamy island aren’t a lot, it is still enjoyable when it is all that you can add to your timetable. Especially since I probably saw some of the most breathtaking sunsets I had ever seen in my life so far!
I mean, check this out, you can not possibly say that this isn’t one of the most stunning sunsets you’ve seen. And it’s unedited!
The island is progressively changing and growing more and more to respond to the increase in tourism demand. Which is a good thing as it creates job and opportunities for the locals.
Boracay is composed of three stations, station 2 is the ‘party’ station, were most of the animation and bars are. Station 2 is also where we stayed during our trip.
Behind the beach and the front sea restaurants, you can find a whole touristy area which is sort of an open mall. A few constructions are still going on but it’s not much compared to the rest of the island where a lot is under construction in order to bring more attention to the rest of the land and not only the beach side.
The main beach there is “White Beach”. You can guess by the name that it is filled with loose and powdery white sand. It’s probably for a lot of people a paradise on Earth. And, rightfully so, the location is breathtaking.
Although, while it’s magical it’s also very touristic and can feel a little packed during the high season (from November to April). While it’s the nicest to travel when it’s the most crowded it’s also good to avoid rainy season if you’d like to travel across the country as your travel might be limited due to the rain or potential typhoon. So, keep that in mind.
On a side note; those photos are dreamy and I hope they inspire you to visit and discover more about this dreamy island, and what the Philippines has to offer.
Those kind of islands are paradise on earth, it’s sad to see how people, mostly tourists, destroy those kinds of places between the plastic pollutions in the sea and the general trash everywhere.
Add to this the non-respect of nature and general destroying of the place and there is nothing left of those places.
Of course, I don’t forget that travelling by plane isn’t also the best for the planet and those islands either. But keeping them trash free is a good start.
