Located approximately 315 km (196 mi) south of Manila and 2 km off the northwest tip of Panay Island in the Western Visayas region of the Philippines. Boracay Island and its beaches have received awards from numerous travel publications and agencies.
When is the best time?
During summer season (November-April) Boracay White Beach is calm and very suitable for swimming, etc. The other side of the island has large winds and waves making it suitable for kite surfing & windsurfing. During the rainy season (Jun-Oct), this is reversed, with a risk of typhoons. White Beach often gets large winds and waves which sometimes makes it unsuitable for swimming. So plan ahead so you will not be caught by typhoon, since Philippines has plenty of typhoons in a year.
Boracay Island is set for some major expansions and one of them covering over 140 hectares an estimated 14% of the Islands total area with a private 1 kilometre white sand beachfront , with an extra 1500 hotel suites to accommodate the rapid growth expansion,
Within the Island there is also for plans for permanent homes for Guests that fall in love with the Boracay experience and want to live here.
