Boracay island is the most visited tourist destination in the Philippines all year round. It has a pristine white sand which is soft to the touch.
Since this is a small island in the Philippines located approximately 315 km (196 mi) south of Manila and 2 km off the northwest tip of Panay Island in Western Visayas region of the Philippines, you need to take a plane from Manila . You could either opt to land in Kalibo, Aklan and take a shuttle to Caticlan plus a short boat ride or take a smaller plane which will land in Caticlan plus a short boat ride to the island.
If you hate the crowd you could opt to stay in station one (1) where there's less tourist because of the hotel prices in the area. Don't worry, I know you want everything on a shoestring that's why I'll point you to the place in station one where you don't have to pay an arm and a leg. Ha ha ha! Just read my blog about that budget inn here
Boracay Island and its beaches have received various awards from different travel publications and agencies. Enjoy and be safe!
