South of Manila there's a little Pacific paradise that's waiting to be your point of harbor: Boracay, Philippines. Its incomparable blend of serenity and excitement make it a popular choice for tourists. Take a vacation in Boracay and enjoy the Pacific beaches you've always dreamed of.
When you think of Boracay, you usually really think of White Beach. Cheap hotels in Boracay are available nearby to keep you close to where the action is. White Beach is legendary for its miles and miles of cream-colored sand. It's perfect for swimming, relaxing, and even shopping –– an assortment of shops can be found toward the beach center, so it's not a problem if you forget your sun lotion in your hotel room. Further north lies Puka Beach, a quieter area than White Beach but no less beautiful. Puka Beach is known for being a great place to gather puka shells, just in case you're looking to take home any souvenirs. If you want something a little more adventurous, you could always rent a car in Boracay and head out to see the landscape further inland.
If you want to attend Boracay's most famous festival, find Boracay package deals that get you here in January, just in time for the Ati-Atihan celebration to honor the Santo Nino. That's when White Beach fills up with local parades, dances, and more. Later on in May, Boracay also becomes the site of the world-famous International Beach Volleyball Tournament. Even if you don't play the game yourself, you can still cheer on any one of the Filipino college teams that assemble here to compete every year.
