Enjoy island life in tiny Boracay

Whether you come to ride the whitecapped, windblown swells of Bulabog Beach in the east, or to laze on the palm-shaded sands of White Beach in the west, you can rest assured that there are Boracay vacation rentals to suit. From hilltop villas casting their gaze across the pearl-blue waters to thatch-topped cabanas that hide in the jungles, you can choose whatever pad you like in this much-loved paradise of the Philippines. All have resplendent sands, see-through waters, scuba diving meccas, rambunctious beach bars, Eastern spa salons and more, right on the doorstep.

There's 2 sides to Boracay

Boracay's split between the paradisiacal beaches of its west coast and the salt-washed, swell-lapped coves in the east. The first are a place to crank up the romance, splash in aquamarine shore waters, snorkel, sunbathe, and maybe even get hitched with a tropical backdrop. The second are for the adrenaline seekers, the wave riders, and the tricksters _ think kiteboarding, surfing, sailing. Going underwater is another major pull, with scuba outfitters beckoning from what seems like every corner. White Beach is a particular hotspot for that.

Beaches, beaches, and more beaches in Boracay

With such an array of white sands and cliff-backed coves ringing the whole island of Boracay, it's hardly a surprise that the beaches are the main draw here. You could get lucky and bag yourself one of the coveted Boracay vacation rentals on White Beach to be just steps from the azure seas in the morning. Or, you could go to Puka Beach in the north for romance and seclusion. Then there's the east and Bulabog Beach, with its roaring wind swells and surf shacks. It's up to you.

It's warm all year in Boracay

Thanks to a natural phenomenon, this corner of the Western Visayas is largely shielded from the strong typhoons of June, July, August, September, and October, even if the skies are more brooding and cloudy then. Most visitors will flock to beachside Boracay vacation rentals for the drier months between November and March, though. That's when the sands fill with tanning bodies and the coastal cocktail bars go into overdrive, and when you'll get the top scuba diving conditions in the seas. Snowbirds will love it.

Beach life and mangroves in Boracay

While it's true that Boracay is all about the beaches, there are some other natural draws worth seeing in this corner of the Philippines. Take the Bakhawan Ecopark just across the water on Panay Island. That's home to sprawling wetlands topped with bamboo boardwalks. The so-called Bat Cave is another curious site, filled with fruit bats and carved into the rock on the west coast. Back to the beaches, and you've got everything from pearly white-sand stretches to rugged cliff-ringed coves, not to mention coral reefs and a kaleidoscope of marine life.
