Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Everything we like is based on our own standards of perfection. No matter how complex or simple a subject is, the human mind sees nothing but infinite happiness and satisfaction for some unknown reason. It’s like Goldilocks finding the bed and porridge that is just right. Everything falls into the right place and at the right time with no angles neglected. And better yet, it causes a change in a person’s life. Dark turns to light, cold into warmth, and anger into love. Such is the power of finding your very own paradise on earth.
Of all the places I have visited, the island of Boracay has made me a prisoner of it’s tantalizing and pristine beauty. This may cause difficulty in leaving the island paradise. You just get stuck in the whirlpool of happiness, it is as if heaven has found its place on earth. A two-day stay won’t be enough time, especially when you’re a first timer. There is so much to see, so much to experience, so much to admire.
If you love being on the beach and watch the sun kiss the water on a late afternoon, then this is the place to go to. Here is a list of Best Beaches in Boracay Island based on my opinion. There are more than ten in total, but these really five really captured my heart. A word of advice though, you’ll probably have a hard time choosing which place to go to after reading through this. But don’t worry, I promise, they’re all worth it.
Found on the northern coast, yapak or Puka Shell Beach is an 800 meter wide area and is famous for its shiny white Puka shells that ignited the 70’s and 80’s jewel demand. It is considered a must see destination by tourists and can be reached through a motorized boat or a paraw, a wind driven yacht. Also it can be accessed through hiking, biking or tricycle.
The small village of Din-Iwid has a famous 200 meter long beach strip and is accessible through White beach. It is also used as a picnic and snorkeling area for adventurous tourists and provides peace and quiet without being isolated. Private resorts have been built in the rising hills as well as cottages and bamboo houses.
Ilig-iligan beach is found on the northeast side of the island. It is famous for its caves, jungles and coves that serves as home to thousands of fruit bats that can be seen hanging from the trees. It is an ideal place to go swimming, fishing and snorkeling and is also used as a picnic area. It is accessible through boat, bike, motorbike or tricycle, depending on the weather because of the dangerous and tricky rough downward slope. Also it is recommended that marine life junkies visit the beach during the southwest monsson season so they’ll be able to take diving trips farther out to sea.
Every first quarter of the year, Bolabog beach springs into life when reef protected currents stir up the waves and breeze. It is a popular site for wind and kite surfers and has been used numerous times as a venue for the annual BoracayFunboard Cup. The beach is now a part of the Asian Windsurfing tour, providing a beautiful location for wind surfers to pass through. Also, tourists can go to Mount Luho, which is the highest point of the island to get a spectacular view of the scenery.
