Boracay: Magical Sunset in the World's Best Island

The small island of Boracay, off the northwest tip of Panay Island in Western Visayas, is undoubtedly the Philippines number one tourist draw. With its sugar fine white beach, azure waters, world-class resorts, hotels bars and restaurants, Boracay has been the top destination for leisure and relaxation. With its 4-kilometer postcard-perfect white beach, Boracay is known all over the world, having been voted as the Best Island in the World by the readers of Travel + Leisure magazine in 2012.

When in Boracay, one of the must-do activities is sunset watching. With an ice cold beer or fruit shake in hand, White Beach provides the perfect seat to watch the sun slowly disappear in the horizon at the end of each day.

Having given the opportunity to once again visit Boracay a few months ago, I made sure not to miss its famous sunset view. These are some of the photos I took during this magical moment in a world-class beach.


The island is about seven kilometers long and less than a kilometer wide at its narrowest portion.


In 2014, Boracay was at the top of Best Islands in the World list of international travel magazine Conde Nast Traveler.  This year (2016) it topped the magazine's Top 10 Destinations To Watch.



The island is part of the Municipality of Malay in the Province of Aklan. It has three barangays, namely Balabag, Manoc-Manoc and Yapak.


Boracay has a total land area of 10.32 square kilometers and a population of 28,369 (per 2010 census). The island's original inhabitant is the Ati people.


Boracay's vibrant night life begins after the sun completely sets. Aside from its powdery white sands, the island is also a well-known party place with plenty of bars and restaurants lining up along the beach front.


So, the next time you are in Boracay, make sure not to miss its world-famous sunset. Most of the time it is magical and inspiring. And unlike the island's other expensive activities, sunset-watching is absolutely free.
