Boracay Island, Philippines
ideal place to just laze around all day,
Boracay Island is only 7 kilometers long,
its narrowest point is just 1 kilometer
wide. The largest barangays (villages) in
Boracay are Manoc-Manoc (where more than
half of the islandís population reside),
Yapak, and Balabag.
It can be quite confusing to make your way
around the vast network of tracks and paths
connecting the villages to several smaller
sitios or hamlets. Therefore, a map of
Boracay can only give users a general guide
around the island.
The west coast of the island has a beautiful
beach with extremely fine white sands most
especially in the area near Balabag.
However, the water here is a bit shallow and
not very good for underwater exploration.
The east coast is more suited for these
activities but the rips in this area can be
quite dangerous, so beware. Sandy bays
abound around the island and are great spots
to relax in if you would prefer to avoid the
crowds of popular White Beach.
Boracay Island is also famous for its very
rare white gleaming puka shells, tooted to
be world class.
The digging and selling of
puka shells on the island has been going on
for years it is inevitable that
large amounts of land will
soon be moved on the north side of the
a long day of exploring Boracay Island you come
