White Beach Boracay
White Beach Boracay, Malay, Aklan, Philippines
World's Best Island - BoracayDubbed as the World's Best Island in 2012, Boracay is definitely gaining the recognition its incomparable beauty and charm deserve.
About 4 kilometers long, White Beach is undoubtedly the island's highlight. Its immaculately white and soft sand strand is dotted with resorts, hotels, and lounge chairs where you could spend the happy hour sipping Piña Colada as the perfectly round sun dips into the horizon. That is if you're not aboard one of the many sailboats called "Paraw" watching the sun set with a cold beer in hand.
Aside from its breathtaking beach, Boracay is also known for numerous watersports and fun activities --- cliff diving, banana boat rides, helmet diving, and kitesurfing. What goes on during the night? I forgot to mention it's also voted as one of the world's top destinations for nightlife.

To do or not to do... beachside on Boracay Islands
Waters on the Boracay beach stay relatively warm till the evening, so as long as you don't forget sunscreen, there's enough to keep you engaged all day (or actively not engage in anything, too). Perch on the silky white sand and you can soak up the sun or find sea shells and corals. Sit around long enough on the sand and you're likely to find pearl vendors come by, or nearby resort servers offering a drink. When you're ready to take a walk, you'll come across beachside canopies offering massages while you listen to the waves crash, for roughly $15/hr. If you crave excitement of water sports ("flyfish" or banana boating, helmet diving, parasailing, etc) you'll find some folks who'll connect you to a business nearby. At night, head to White Beach and you can have dinner on the sand, your table lit by torch light.
