Summer vacations are nice. You get to relax and enjoy time alone or better yet, with the people you love most.
What i love about this time of year is that you get to travel when you go on vacations. You get to see new places and different people. You get to spend time away from work or school and just enjoy yourself. But really, summer vacations are not the same without having a trip to the beach.
Boracay- undoubtedly the best place to be in summer.
It’s seemingly tradition that the family takes a trip to Boracay every summer of every year. It has been like this since the 90’s. And well, this tradition has made me experience the transition of Boracay from being a virgin island into becoming one of the summer capitals in the whole Philippines.
Boracay’s a wonder. Since then, the white sand beach is definitely the real reason why everyone’s drawn to the place. But now, the scenery, the party, the shops, the tourists, the parasailing, the banana boat rides, the flying fish, these are plus points making the whole isalnd a wonder.
From Iloilo City, Boracay’s a six hour drive. This is why the family often leaves at around midnight in order to have breakfast in the island. But on the way is the sea food capital, Roxas City. So you guys might want to drop by the place. After the drive to Caticlan, you get on a ferry to the island itself. And setting foot, you either get on a multicab or a trike to your hotel.
Well, there are a lot of activities you get to do when you’re on the island. One of which is well, swimming on the beach! The clear water will definitely entice you. And it’s best to go swimming early in the morning when the sun’s not at its peak.
Another thing is going on beach activities like banana boat riding, parasailing, flying fishing, and boating! These rides take about ten to twenty minutes but i bet you’re gonna enjoy it as much. Boating, however, takes two to four hours. You get to visit different islands, go fish feeding, and well, buying coconut juice from vendors who sell it on bangkas.
Lastly, you shouldn’t miss partying on the island. Filipinos around the country and tourists around the world gather in Boracay to have the ULTIMATE experience and it wouldn’t be complete without partying.
