The island of Boracay is one of the most beautiful islands of the Philippines. It 'a small island, 7 km long and wide in its narrowest point, only 1 km, and is situated only 2 km north-west of the island of Panay, the main island of the Visayas. The jewel is the island of Boracay White Beach, considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
The White Beach is a stretch of 4 km long white sand along almost the entire western side of the island, and is lapped by turquoise water, pristine, and very clear. For snorkelers, we recommend the Rocky Beach, located at the beginning of White Beach, where just entering the water you come across a great barrier of rocks, where small and large lurk fish and corals. White Beach runs parallel to the only road on the island, where you'll find most of the resort, rooms and restaurants. Usually chosen as the base Nu Nu Noos, since it is located practically in the center of White Beach, near all the main activities.
The east coast of Baracay is characterized by numerous sheltered and picturesque bays, rewarding the ardent walker with spectacular views. Instead, the end of the island, north and south, home to the picturesque hills, with elevations of 100 meters above sea level, overlooking the sea with attractive reefs.
The Island has numerous scattered villages interconnected by a maze of adventurous jungle trails. Boracay is becoming Asia's most popular resort for diving schools, with good shallow coral dives and drop-offs to depths of thirty meters being within easy reach, while the more experienced and adventurous can dive into groped Cave at Black Rock Island or Maniguin, very popular among shark enthusiasts, at a distance of one and a half hours with a local boat.
It 's also possible to organize full-day excursions, by boat around the island, with stops at the northern caves, near Yapak, inhabited by giant bats, locally called "Flying Monsters" and the Shell Museum "Kar- trucks "with Filipino craft displays in Ilig-Iligan.
