After Ilocos, we headed a little South last Monday and the destination is… yes! Boracay! 🙂
I was with C, my sister L and my niece H. All of us were first timers and I just have seen Ilocos so my expectations are quite high.
We stayed at Shore Time Hotel in Station 1 and I am very satisfied with their service. From the airport transfer, to checking in and their warm welcome, to making sure we’re wifi connected. We got a twin pad room for 3 days 2 nights stay for only P4700/night. It was a 2 storey pad, with 2 queen size beds, 2 sony lcd tvs, an efficient toilet and bath, 2 airconditions, well lit and with fresh linens, towels and toiletries. I highly recommend this hotel to all. 🙂
But this isn’t the main event, it’s the beach of course! and man my expectations are well met! Boracay is beautiful! Now I know why the place is popular and people are coming back. The view is prestine with ivory sand and sky blue water! Exaggeration aside, Boracay is really something!
These are one of few times that I won’t bother the sun. I can walk at high noon without sun block and not mind that I’m getting darker by the minute. We didn’t try water activities though, but we splurged on food! Boracay is also known for the many restaurants and food choices for any budget range.
First meal was lunch at Hawaiian Barbecue and dinner at Epic Bar plus some booze over Pat’s Creek Bar. Second day was hefty complimentary breakfast at the hotel’s cafe, lunch at Obama Grill and dinner at Red Coconut Grill.
Of course, sunset at station 1 is not to be missed. Although I can catch a good sunset once in a while here in Cavite, sunset in Boracay is awesome. You know, it’s kind that makes you think and realize that life is indeed amazing 🙂
It was a short but nice visit to Boracay. I know there are still a lot that I am yet to try. I am looking forward to seeing its beauty again. Following are some photos taken via mobile during our stay there. 🙂
