Boracay is an island in the west of the Philippines and is THE beach destination in the Philippines. They say when you meet any Filipino they will always say "you must go to Boracay". So, I flew off to Boracay from Cebu on a tiny little bubble of an airplane. The beach is great, huge with very soft sands and completely the opposite of Alona on Panglao. Alona was quiet and small nd not so amny people and Boracay is big and there are many many people everywhere. I actually prefer something in-between the two, but its still nice and the sunsets are amazing! Mostly I just relaxed and sunned and read a few books and played some beach volleyball. I did a deep dive of 39 meters (120 feet) and with deep dives they are either really great or rather boring and it's just pure luck. Unfortunately, mine was pretty boring and I didnt really se so much, whereas the day before a guy who just recently bgan diving saw a giant eagle ray and a whale shark! But it was still a good place and I had some great seafood and met a few people at the bars, but am more looking forward to going north and seeing the mountains and local vilages.
