Finally! We set foot in Bora for the very first time. (Is calling Boracay “Bora” conyo or jeje?) And, oh, how I fell in love with this island paradise. It was beautiful – stunning beach views, relaxing vibes and coolly indifferent tourists (who don’t mind how you look at all).
The most amazing thing about Boracay is their beach.
Uhmmm…I said BEACH.
Fortunately, we went there when it wasn’t as crowded.
Much of the sand was covered by water and so the beach was just a narrow stretch of white sand.
We got plenty of sun and not a hint of rain!
I loved walking barefeet on the soft, powdered milk like white sand with the water touching my ankles.
We chanced upon expert makers of Boracay sand castles. Yep, they’re only kids! They’re cafting a Boracay insignia here.
At night, the barbecue stalls come out to the beachfront.
When night falls, Boracay beach comes alive with bright neon lights.
We walked the beach to Station 2 where all the action was. D*Mall was our mark.
We went and grabbed dinner at the first restaurant we saw.
We saw this human statue/robot show when we were making our way through quaint shops in D*Mall.
Cool, but what the heck, “tipping is required” before you can take photos from the show! These photos were illegally taken, technically.
Shopping for pasalubongs won’t be a problem.
The cheapest ones are key chains, ref magnets, bracelets and anklets.
Haggle, haggle. Shop around, you’ll find bargains from other stores.
Boracay is a party scene in itself, I tell you.
Breathtaking panoramic view of Boracay lush greens from our temporary home, Alta Vista de Boracay.
Our room had a good vantage point of the luxurious Shangrila Resort & Spa and world-class golf resort Fairways & Bluewater.
Breakfast buffet at Alta Vista, overlooking the infinity pool.
Right after a hearty breakfast, Ara and I didn’t waste time and tried the pool.
Then there’s unspoiled Puka beach, a short 5 minute ride away from our resort.
The water was as turquoise and as clear as a chlorinated swimming pool.
Nothing fancy for lunch. Just Mang Inasal, just because we were soooo hungry from all the Puka goodness. We needed the unlimited rice. LOL.
Boracay is home to the most amazing sunset colors.
We did banana boating, and nobody even fell off! What a letdown. LOL. This was the only activity we paid to do, and this right here was our last sunset in Bora. Sad.
Boracay! It’s paradise for the beach and sun-worshipper like me! I’ll miss the Boracay vibe.
I love you, Boracay.
