Boracay isn’t that big, the atmosphere and tropical beaches are the attraction. There’s no need to go on an exhausting sightseeing tour or get your Boracay travel guide book out. White beach is a thing of unsurpassed beauty where you seldom feel any crowds. Go exploring and you might stumble upon the deserted paradise-like Punta Bunga Beach or the wild east coast beaches. Offshore there are exceptional waters perfect for diving or snorkelling, while a late afternoon sailing is the best way to appreciate the legendary sunsets. The really adventurous can arrange trips to the larger island of Panay. For many, whiling away the day on a sun lounger, sipping a San Miguel and enjoying the beach party atmosphere by night and the numerous eateries is the highlight of a Boracay stay.

Chowing down at the food festival

Of the many many festivals that take place in the Philippines each year, few are as eagerly anticipated as the annual Boracay Food Festival. This foodie fiesta is staged between 11 and 13 May and is similar to a number of food-themed events held throughout the country. But, because this is Boracay, it has an extra special flavour due to the unique mix of local Filipino revellers and Western tourists.
