Time to say Goodbye Boracay Island

Well done!  I'll see you again soon.This island has gave me a lot of experience when traveling solo during my blog anniversary but it is likewise a home to relaxation and pure comfort. Summer is the best time to visit and have a travel vacation over to Boracay Island. I had fun and relaxing trip from the Island of Boracay.
From Station 1 I had a quick tricyle ride and bound to Caticlan Port for atleast 30 minutes.I'll checked again for some airfare promos.

Fees at Caticlan Port to Boracay:
PHP 75.00 for environmental fee-above 12 years old
PHP 25.00 for the boat
PHP 50.00 for the terminal fee

Note:environmental fee is only at the Caticlan Port while going to Boracay. The fee doesn't apply on your return from Boracay to Caticlan.
Happy Travels!

Jonah's Fruitshake in Boracay Island - All Time Favorite

One of the best fruitshakes in the Island of Boracay. Before I left to Boracay, I bought one bottle of mango shake flavor at Station 1 along the highway near the church.  It is very famous for its mango shake among other flavors which cost you about P80.00 pesos. Their fruit shakes are the best and affordable. I made sure to purchase one of these since I don't go to Boracay often. . I haven't tried the other stuff in the menu, I only come for the shakes. Other stores also sell fruitshakes along the beach but Jonah's Fruitshake is really the best which only located at Station 1 Boracay Island Malay Aklan. Jonah's Fruitshake and Snackbar Contact Number: (036) 288-328 for delivery within the island.

Photowalk and Things to do in Boracay Island, Malay Aklan

I've been to Boracay so many times, it is a nice place to visit, awesome for family vacation and the beach is the only one of a kind, powdery white sand (parang polvuron lang).Well! Did you know that Boracay is voted the 2nd best beach in the world! oh di ba?! In my own experience to the Island of Boracay it is truly a paradise and I will keep on coming back.There is no other pure white sand place like Boracay Island. Deserves all the praises it's getting now from the tourist because you can't compare Boracay Island to any beach in some other countries and it was beautiful white sand was tourist come from all over the world mostly I saw many Koreans last July 2012 trip. If any of you get the chance to travel Boracay Island in Malay Aklan. I recommend everyone to do so and a lot of fun activities like Helmet Diving, Island Hopping, Scuba Diving and Zorb Ball Riding.  

Sighting in Boracay Island White Beach, Malay Aklan

A haven paradise! A lot of foreign tourist made boracay every year to enjoy sun bathing and beauty of the white beach, some of hotels provides reclining chairs for their guests. Enjoy the crystal clear blue water and the sun (put sun screen first) and the sea wind as well. Just sit at the white sand while waiting for that magic moment when the sun changes its color into golden yellow. Picture taking is a must thing to do in the Island. Everything is just perfect for that Paradise Tropical Island Getaway!

Accommodation in Boracay Island White Beach

Boracay is the top one tourist summer destination in the Philippines. Some of the hotels offers cheap accommodation in Boracay Island, super value for your money, excellent service and easy to transport. You get more than your money's worth and earn anywhere, anytime at your convenient. Here are my top 3 accommodation in Boracay: Nandana Boracay, Boracay Regency and Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel.

Boracay Island White Beach - More Fun In The Sun

It's true! More fun in Boracay Island White Beach! Why Boracay? Because of their water sports activity like banana boat, island hopping, snorkeling, reef walking and flyfish has got to be my fave water sports in the island. And when the sun goes down, you can enjoy to any part of Boracay's restaurant and bars for a taste of the island best foods and drinks. Take you out on adventures and has great resorts, food, and some of the friendliest people around, there's much more to do than just relax on long strip white beach. Filipinos local and tourist could visit because of its natural beauty has to offer to everyone. And it is indeed should be part of 7 Summer Wonders of the Philippines.  

Boracay Island during Rainy Season

Have you been to Boracay Island during wet or rainy season? During the month of June to September is the off season in Boracay. Cold weather , no long waiting lines at the terminal and much lesser accommodation options. This is also the off-season, where you can get the cheapest price rates like hotel, restaurants, water sports activity, island hopping etc. The weather can be like this every now and then. That's why it's also known as "low season" as the prices can be much lower at hotels due to less tourists and expect a lots of rain, high tide and strong winds.  What makes visiting Boracay Island is easy which almost all people understand English and many can speak it quite well.  People are very warm and friendly and the prices are very reasonable.

How to get to Puka Beach in Boracay Island

Going to Puka Beach from Boracay or Caticlan Port:

This is my DIY trip (do it yourself trip) From Caticlan Port ride a ferry boat bound to Cagban Jetty Port in Boracay then take a tricyle ride going to the white beach. Then ask the driver to drop you off to D'Mall. Once you get to D'Mall, tricycles are available to take you to Puka Beach located at Barangay Yapak, Malay Aklan, which is the northern tip of Boracay Island.. Regular fare for each person is P20. If you’re with a group and you would want to rent one, charter rate per tricycle (not per person) is P100 for the local tourists, P150 for foreigners. Just tell the driver to drop you off to the famous white beach of Puka Beach. 

I do highly recommend this place. I have been here last July 2012 and will be back soon.

Restaurants and Bars at Puka Beach, Boracay Island

There are several bars and restaurants in Puka Beach, Barangay Yapak, Malay Aklan. One of the famous restaurant is Seashore Grill and Restaurant located infront of the white beach resort.  They serve great foods and fresh seafoods as well.  They are kind and  i felt so safe when i was there.  I should say it's the best part of the whole boracay island trip. It's very secluded and quiet. There is no doubt that this is a must see when you are in Boracay and do not miss to have something to eat at Seashore Grill and Restaurant  , a little nipa hut eatery,serving freshly prepared seafood. Food is excellent and staff are very nice.

I will surely go back this place soon! Happy Travels!

Puka Beach or Puka Shell Beach - A Hidden Gem of Boracay Island

What a paradise! Welcome to Puka Beach! This places is a like a hidden paradise because it is covered with small islands and rock formation. I took a short 20 minutes tricycle ride to one of the most beautiful and hidden beaches in Boracay. Make sure to go for a long walk along the shore to explore some awesome rock caves and find seashells. This beach area is the second largest white beach of Boracay.  Other travelers and tourist like to enjoy this eco-paradise and a long white beach area. Perhaps the most famous activity in Puka Beach is island hopping, snorkeling and  scuba diving. 

Jump Off to Puka Beach in Boracay Malay Aklan

Puka Beach or locally known as Puka Shell Beach is awesome. This part of the beach is in the northern side of Boracay Island. If you want a different experience in the Island go to Puka Beach located at Barangay Yapak, Boracay Island, Malay Aklan. About 15-20 minutes away from the white beach of Boracay and has quite/less tourist. Along the 800-meter stretch of white sand. Just hanging out sa tindahan ni ate sa harap ng main gate! hehehe! or check out their local puka shells accessories and souvenirs inside the area.  Beads and other ornaments made from shells, pearls, and other gems are sold there. A lot of restaurant can be find at Puka Beach. It's an image of what most people expect to come here! I never visited this area since I was travelling boracay so many times. For your information the resort has no entrance fee. I probably recommend this area because I think this was a hidden gem of Boracay Island.
