BORACAY: Truly a Paradise!

Boracay is a small island in the Philippines located approximately 315 km (196 miles) south of Manila and 2 km off the northwest tip of Panay Island in the Western Visayas region of the Philippines. 

Boracay Island and its beaches have received awards from numerous travel publications and agencies.

Located in Malay, Aklan, Western Visayas,
Boracay is just seven kilometers long, and less than a kilometer wide at its narrowest point – a postcard-sized tropical paradise.

Apart from its white sand beaches, Boracay is also famous for being one of the world's top destinations for relaxation.

It only took one hour by plane from Manila to Kalibo.
Then from Kalibo International Airport to Caticlan, it took an hour and a half by bus. From there, we were asked to pay an "environmental and terminal fees" for about 175 pesos (4 USD). Then we rode on a boat for about 10 minutes. If you are not under a travel agency, you will pay 25 pesos (0.5USD) for a boat ticket.
