Boracay is a tiny island in the Visayas region of the central Philippines. As the most popular travel destination in the Philippines, it’s far from undiscovered — the island absolutely teems with tourists from all over the world.

Getting to Boracay is a bit of an adventure in itself. Upon arriving Manila airport on December 20th at about one in the morning, I was beyond exhausted and was preparing to board yet another plane. We boarded Cebu Pacific at five in the morning and within an hour, landed at Caticlan airport which is one of the two gateways to Boracay. From the airport, we took a 5 min tricycle ride to the jetty port and then a 15 min boat ride to Boracay.

And that wasn’t the end of our mini commutes….we still had to take another 20 min tricycle van ride to our resort…beautiful Astoria!!!

What’s so intriguing about Boracay is that the beachfront is just “picture perfect” to say the least — the soft white sands, the beach stretching from one corner to the other, the beautiful landscape, the clear blue crystal clear waters— Do as much as you like on the beach or do nothing at all and still feel so accomplished.

Fire dancers was definitely the highlight of my evening!

I saw what was indisputably the best sunset of my life. My photos don’t remotely capture how incredible it was, but here are a few shots of it anyway.

On our second day there – we took a 30 min. boat ride to Aron Magic Island, where it’s known for cliff diving. We were told that if you bring your own food that they will cook it for you. Which is exactly what we did and it was probably the best meal I had in Boracay!!!

Of course, I couldn’t leave the island without drinking some fresh coconut juice!
