Boracay Island is situated northwest of Panay Island. This dog-bone shaped island is only seven kilometers long and the narrowest part of the island is less than a kilometer wide. It only has a total land area of 10.32 kilometers.
From Panay Island, visitors take a jiffy ride at Caticlan Port and travel about twenty minutes, docking at Cagban Beach in Boracay Island. When the wind and the sea conditions are not favorable, visitors are docked at the Tambisan Beach, on the east side of the island.
Boracay is known worldwide for its famous White Beach and Bulabog Beach. The White Beach is on the westside of the island while the Bulabog Beach is on the east. The main tourism spot of the island is the White Beach. Here, there is a stretch of four kilometers of white powdery sand, so fine, it does not stick to your skin. The sea water is so clear and blue especially during summer time.
For commercial purposes, the whole beachfront of the White Beach is divided into three stations, connected together by a foot path. No vehicles are allowed on the beachfront. At Station one are the more classy and more expensive resorts, hotels, bars and restaurants. This is where famous local and international celebrities and affluent people stay. At Station Two, are affordable hotels and restaurants and most of the shopping stalls are found here. These is where souvenir items are sold. In this station is an access footpath going to the wet market of Boracay where you can buy fresh sea foods, such as first class fish, lobsters, crabs, shells and shrimps. There are stalls owners there who will offer to cook what you have bought for a very minimal charge. For those vacationing on a limited budget, at Station Three are lodging houses or cheap rooms for rent. There are also restaurants and bars.
One will never run out of activity at the White Beach, be it daytime or nighttime. You can go swimming or sun bathing the whole day. You can go island hopping, snorkeling, or scuba diving. You can also try the kiteboarding or the parasailing. The most idyllic adventure is sunset sailing. While you ride on the waves it will seem that you have left behind all the pressures the world can give and find a peaceful and tranquil paradise on the water. It is the most relaxing and the most peaceful activity in Boracay.
In the evening, there are lots of parties going on, dancing, overflowing of food and drinks and now and then, you will witness fire dancing. When you stroll along the beach, you will find young children making sand castles, complete with lights made locally out of bottle filled with kerosene and cloth as wick. You can have picture taking of this artistic work. For those who do not like to spend, you can just have sight-seeing of all the activities going around.
Although Bulabog Beach is not as well known as the White Beach, many people go there for kiteboarding and surfing. It is more peaceful on this beach because there are fewer visitors.
