It makes quite a statement when a mere speck situated in the middle of the Philippines is known abroad as one of the world's best beaches. When your boat sails off for the Isle of Boracay and you finally set your bare feet on sugary fine white sand, it is the beginning of one of the best times of your life. Lazing around is an option, but with so much aqua sports to do, there can never be one boring second on Boracay. Dives are the best and boating is a must especially to view those phenomenal sunsets from. Here the encounter with sunsets is always a prelude to partying at night until dawn breaks. Boracay, even with its world's best beach sash, is so laid back that even at partying hours going barefoot is still almost compulsory.
