Mastering space-saving packing hacks is a skill worth learning for Boracay backpackers. Spending most of your time outdoors for the duration of your vacation means that you need to prioritize the items you’d be carrying. Fortunately, a Boracay itinerary is typically “no frills”—with a couple of light outfits, a pair of sunglasses, and sunscreen, you’re good to go!
When it comes to rich marine life, nothing comes close to the Philippines. Home to the world’s most gorgeous beaches, the Philippines is paradise to local and foreign divers. Recently, the Philippines’ Boracay was once again named the world’s best island in the Conde Nast Traveler’s 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards. Apart from the powdery white sand, stunning sunset, and thriving party scene, Boracay’s sea life is also worth raving about.
Boracay is friendly to explorers of different experience levels. You don’t have to be an experienced scuba diver to be able to encounter the most fascinating sea animals and creatures in the island. One of the most exciting, budget-friendly things to do in Boracay is to take snorkeling sessions and feast your eyes on the some of the most beautiful coral reefs and marine sanctuaries you will ever see in your life.
We have different ways of enjoying our precious vacation days. Some love to travel in groups while others prefer going solo. A grand beach party may be the definition of “fun” for you, but a more intimate gathering may be preferred by other vacationers. Whatever your idea of a stress-busting activity is, choose a Boracay hotel accommodation that will suit your plans.
“Someone who loves me went to Boracay and gave me this shirt.”
