Right now I'm really missing being at the beach, but not just any beach I miss the beautiful long stretch of white sand beach in Boracay, an island in the Philippines. This is where my wife and I spent our first week together after Internet/web cam chatting for 8 months. Currently, I live in Texas with my beautiful wife Marie who is from the Philippines.
I have been to a couple of beautiful beaches but Boracay is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful beaches in this earth which offers breath-taking views, great vacation activities, fabulous hotel/resorts accommodation available in a very affordable rate compared to other destinations and most of all people there are very hospitable, warm and friendly. If you love seafood, you will surely have a blast there. Boracay Island kind of reminds me of Playa del Carmen, Mexico, but more breath taking.
Boracay is situated in one of the islands in Visayas region in the Philippines and the most convenient means of transportation to the island is by plane. For us, we flew with SeaAir from Cebu to Caticlan and back to Cebu. From Caticlan port, we took the complimentary boat ride of the hotel we stayed in Boracay. It was around 10-15 minutes boat ride.
We stayed in Willy's Beach Hotel/Resort for 5 days and 4 nights in their super deluxe accommodation. The room is huge with one king and one queen bed and the bathroom was awesome with a big bathtub. Luckily, we got a beachfront room. A little bit costly compared to the other hotels there but it was worth it.
Once you are on the island you feel like you are in paradise. If you ever get a chance to go I highly recommend it.
