Boracay (locally [bɔˈrakaɪ]) is a resort island in the Western Visayas region of the Philippines. It lies 0.8 kilometers (0.50 mi) off the northwest coast of Panay. Having a total area of 10.32 square kilometers (3.98 sq mi), it is under the jurisdiction of three barangays in Malay, Aklan, which in 2015, had a population of 32,267. The island was administered by the Boracay Inter-agency Task Force during its six-month-long closure in 2018.
Apart from its white sand beaches, Boracay is also famous for being one of the world's top destinations for relaxation. As of 2013, it was emerging among the top destinations for tranquility and nightlife.

It's truly a tourist destination. why? you can step on a white sand, surrounded by clear water, many food store, and lots of activities that you'll enjoy but then there's a lot of people here and some stations they didn't maintain the cleanliness of some area.

Boracay is a beautiful island. One of the most beautiful I've been to. A long beach with fine, white sand. Turquoise waters. Restaurants for every possible taste. Lively night life. Friendly people. Pricier than most other island destinations in the Philippines. Unfortunately, there is the problem of poor sanitation. It's great that the government finally decided to take things seriously. Let's see what happens and hope for the best. rainbowjournal

We visited last year April 2017 with my love of my life and my family. The water is warm so my husband don’t want to go out from the water, though a little bit crowded on one side but there are also some quiet places in Boracay. Romantic getaway. 😊😊

Depending on whom you'll come with, you'll get completely different memories. If you'll visit this place with your significant other, this is going to be a paradise island of your dreams, not crowded, with crazy southeast Asian vibes and cheap drinks. But if you're a man traveling alone or with your male friends you're going to be constantly and aggressively approached by ladies offering you "services" and you may get depressed once you'll learn that the local community is heavily exploited by foreign capital - which slowly turns this place into a commercial golf course where locals are slaves.

It was a lost paradise during the 80's, It was a paradise discovered in the 90's. It is still a paradise in the 2000's , somewhat big wigs of the industry took notice. 2018... the paradise needs our help from becoming a huge septic tank. I pray the residents here came to realize the mistakes they have been doing.

My experience in Bora was quiet unforgettable. People were very approachable, foreigners were present especially Koreans. The beach was amazing as well as the foods.

They'll charge extra st most places if you're a foreigner. Better find a local to tag with. Beach view is amazing during sunset. Starbucks on the beach is really nice.
