10 Ways Boracay Will Change Your Life

For those unfamiliar with Boracay, picture this: powder white sands and clear blue waters. I think the picture above says it all. An island off the Philippines and just an hour’s flight away from Manila, Boracay is not only an amazing beach vacation, it’s a game-changer. And here are 10 reasons why it’ll change your life.

1. The most ridiculous beaches ever

Gorgeous. Like drop-dead gorgeous beaches. Jealousy-inducing, mind-melting, awe-inspiring grandeur. You’ll never look at beauty the same way again. The most famous beaches are White Beach and Puka Beach.

4. Scuba diving

With dozens of dive centers to choose from, diving in Boracay is a must. Not only is the water warm and the coral and fish beautiful, it’s generally pretty cheap. For $30 -40/dive you get an instructor and all the equipment needed.

5. Some of the best kitesurfing ever

This is a good chance to do something a little scary and outside your comfort zone if you’ve never kitesurfed before. Head over to Bulabog beach, which is known as the best kitesurfing destination in Asia for lessons and rentals.

Cocktails and sunsets. Is there a more perfect coupling? Wind down the day with a cool drink in one hand and a thousand shades of red, blue, and orange on the horizon. You’ll develop a new appreciation for sunsets and color guaranteed.
