Planning on visiting Boracay? Why not, its an excellent tourism spot.

Touted as one of the Philippines’ premier tourist destinations, Boracay is a tropical paradise off the province of Aklan in the Philippines, and is internationally known for its fine, white sand beaches that captivate every adventurer and nature lover’s heart. It is a very small yet fascinating island that only stretches up to 7 kilometres with a width of only 1 kilometre at its narrowest.

It wasn’t until the 1970’s that tourism reached Boracay island.

Word of its pristine beauty was spread by European backpackers until mainstream tourists started to take notice. In just a span of 10 years, the whole world has discovered the beautiful island of Boracay ranging from backpackers to luxury travellers.

Yet despite its rapid growth and commercialism, Boracay has managed to preserve some of its beaches. A good example of this is Yapak Beach located at the back of the award-winning White Beach. There, it is still possible to walk on a deserted beach and enjoy peace and solitude. It is more popularly known as Puka Beach from the shell that was once endemic to this part of the island.
