It’s odd that I’m travelling to other countries but I have never been to the most famous beach in the Philippines. White powdery sand, turquoise sea and blue sky, Boracay is just beautiful. The best way to get there is to fly direct from Manila to Caticlan which is about an hour, then catch a motor boat going to the island.

we’re sunburned!

We stayed at Jony’s which is located between station 1 and station 2. I would definitely recommend this place if you’re going to Boracay. Friendly staff and super-fast wifi! I had my family travelling with me and we had the best 3-day relaxing vacation ever. My parents had never traveled around the country before, in fact our Hong Kong and Macau vacation were their first trip abroad. If you could have seen the excitement on their face the first time they went on the plane, it was priceless. Back then when I was still working in the Philippines, I couldn’t afford to treat them for a vacation but now things have changed and I promised them to enjoy the luxury of traveling every time I come home.

look at those talcum powder sands!

Anyway, as we dumped our bags we anxiously went to the beach and no word could describe how amazing the beach was. We had a relaxing massage the next day and we enjoyed the buffet dinner every night.

Baywatch moment!

Gotta love Boracay golden sunset!

The day went by so fast but I just loved waking up early to see the beach at low tide and walking to the powdery sand that feels like velvet beneath my feet. The big bonus was the glorious sunset, that golden sky against the backdrop of sailing boats was a beautiful masterpiece. Nothing more to say about it without seeing it for yourself.

Overall, we enjoyed our short family vacation at the beach and would love to go back again.
