Where I stayed
Otherwise for us ordinary folk Boracay is the place to be for that perfect stress relieving beach vacation. Consistently voted as one of the top 10 beaches in the world, Boracay lives up to its billing...or at least I think it does. Anyone care to sponsor me for a year long survey of all the best beaches in the world, and the five tonnes of suntan lotion that I would need to bring along? I promise I'll write you postcards?
But seriously, the star attraction of Boracay is the sand, especially along stations one and two
Aside from the obvious dip in the sea there is so much to do there. Parasailing, diving, island hopping, sailing, canoeing, jetboating, fly fishing, and even golf. The options were so mind blowing that I did absolutely none of them, and felt absolutely on holiday, much to the annoyance of the tout who was hanging around the entrance to the hotel trying to get a commission. Parasailing sir? If you want I give you discount? Its onnnnnly 50 US dollars!
Don't count on the nightlife being as colourful as the Patong beach scene in Phuket. You have your standard bars and pickup joints but as the sun goes down, the tide will recede and reveal an amazing 50 metres of beachfront, complete with a cool sea breeze and all. Head off then to Pier One for a candlelight pina colada under the stars, whilst lying on a cushion, as the Pussycat Dolls blare over the speakers. Don't Cha just want to be there? Don't Cha?
