There’s more to Boracay than White Beach. The 5-kilometer stretch of powdery white sand is obviously the most popular beach in the island. It is also the most developed and busiest beach with hundreds of resorts, hotels, restaurants, and clubs lined up along the coast. But did you know that there are other Boracay beaches that are just as beautiful and stunning?
Boracay is a popular vacation destination in the Philippines for both locals and foreigners. With Boracay Island constantly listed as one of the world’s best, a Boracay trip is on every avid traveler’s bucket list.
Foreigners outnumbered local tourists for the first time in 2015. Koreans were the top visitors, followed by the Chinese, Taiwanese, Malaysians, Americans, Australians, Singaporeans, Saudi Arabians, British, and Japanese. The spike in tourist arrivals from abroad was spurred by the increase in direct international flights, the addition of new activities and experiences offered in Boracay, and more cruise ships making stopovers on the island. Boracay’s attraction goes beyond just its turquoise waters, white sand beaches, and swinging nightlife.
So you're all set for your Boracay vacation. Make sure your sunscreen and wide-brimmed hat are packed with your beach wear. Do you have a first-aid kit? You should have emergency medicines and supplies ready wherever you go. You never know when you'll need a band-aid. Finally, check whether the pasalubong wish list from family and friends is complete (unless you're up for guilt trips when you come home). To avoid your mom complaining that you got the wrong item, jot down any specification such as preferred quality, store/brand, etc. You can also research on recommended shops that sell authentic souvenirs in Boracay. This can save you time and money when shopping for Boracay souvenirs especially if you have limited vacation time.
Here's your guide in choosing, hunting, and shopping for charming souvenirs from Boracay.
