About Boracay
page 1


Boracay Island is off the northwestern tip of Panay Island in the Visayan Region, Boracay is about 300kms south of the Capitol of Manila. Travelers from all over the globe come to see the world's most beautiful beach-"White Sands Beach".

Boracay is shaped like a dumb-bell, it is 7.25 km. long and the narrowest spot is nearly 1 km. wide. Land area is approximately 1, 098 hectares with about 6,085 locals. The Island belongs to the municipality of Malay in Aklan province and consists of three communities locally called "barangay".


Yapak in the northern barangay, Balabag in the central barangay and Manoc-Manoc in the southern barangay. There is 30+ beaches and coves, but the king of them all is White Beach, a 3.7km ribbon of powder white sand and gentle, warm water. The water is shallow and its sand brighter and finer than most beaches in the archipelago.

Boracay would have remained a national secret if not far a few foreign travelers whom accidentally stumbled upon the place. Some say it was a movie crew, which spread word about Boracay to other sun worshippers. Other swear it was German traveler Jens Peters' book, which included rare reviews about Boracay, that sent tourists on their way.

Whichever tale is true, Boracay has become a melting pot for beach loceers. At any point in the islands, visitors can hear English, German and French spoken fluently. More importantly, visitors respect the serene quality of the place, and pay tribute to native Boracaynons by behaving according to local behavioral codes-which means no nudity, no fighting, and no loud commotion's.


Not surprisingly, the culinary fare at Boracay is as diverse as the nationalities of its visitors. French, Australian, Belgian, German, Spanish and Thai-they're all here side by side the native cuisine. Lending ample support to this virtual rainbow of fruit shakes: from sweet yellow mango, greenstart.
