Summer in Boracay

It was the first time for me to visit Boracay two summers ago. And I only have one word to describe the place....PERFECT! A lot of people have been raving about the place but I never had an urge to take my vacation there until my brother gave my parents a free trip to Boracay as an anniversary gift. I just joined them the last minute.

Boracay is a perfect summer destination with its white sand, blue waters and skies. No wonder a lot of tourists frequent the place. I hate riding in small airplanes but Boracay is so worth it.

My brother booked us at Boracay Regency Beach Resort and flight arrangements were fixed via Seair. What I like about Boracay Regency is that from the time we arrived at Caticlan Domestic Airport, we were already assisted by their employees on where to go next which was great for first timers like us.

From the airport, we proceeded to Fairways and Bluewater Resort where we rode a small boat to take us to Boracay.

I think Boracay Regency Beach Resort was one of the main reasons why we enjoyed our Boracay trip so much. When we arrived at the hotel, we were given welcome drinks while waiting for our room. Our room was clean and their housekeeping staff was very efficient. Our balcony wasn't overlooking the beach area but it was okay since the hotel was only a few steps from the beach. Their breakfast buffet was great. There were a lot of choices to cater to both Filipino and foreign tourists. There were also 3 swimming pools to choose from if you get tired of the beach. ( What we did was we spent the day at the beach and then we'd go to the hotel's swimming pool for night swimming.)

It was April when we took our vacation there so the weather was great too. I told my mom that even if you're not a professional photographer and you're just using an old camera with low resolution, the pictures would still turn out to be beautiful. Our timing was also perfect since it was before the Holy Week ( I hate crowds!) so there were only a few visitors when we had our vacation there. So if you want a relaxing vacation, try visiting the place during the lean months.

Puka Beach is situated on the other side of Boracay Island. You can reach the place via boat ride. Some prefer island hopping so they rent boats for the day. But since I don't like boat rides, we went there via tricycle! ha!ha! What's nice when we visited the place was that there were no commercial establishments along the beach so it was just pure nature at its best!

I super love this picture.
It looks like it was taken from a postcard.
And to think I just used my ordinary digital camera
when I took this picture.

The grotto -
The water here is just chest-high
so you can just walk towards the grotto.

It's nice to spend the day sitting infront of the beach
appreciating nature's beauty.

Beautiful sunset of Boracay!
