  • This place does look so amazing. I have seen quite a lot of pictures of it recently and its high on my list of places to visit. There looks there is so much to do there too, can’t wait :-)

  • Gorgeous pictures! I’m not one for lazing about sunbathing (can’t tan!) so I like the sound of the more adventurous things to do there. And cocktails at sundown sound perfect!

  • Wow Boracay looks amazing! We have recently just been to the Philippines but only to Manila and Palawan. Palawan was amazing and everything we expected of the Philippines but we would love to go back one day to see other places, especially Boracay!

  • I dunno – you make it sound terribly dangerous, with this “literally take your breath away” business. I like breathing…

    I’m just teasing. It looks beautiful! What on earth is “helmet diving”? You say it’s famous, but it’s the one thing on the list I haven’t heard of! I love parasailing and swimming in the ocean (Are there many sharks? Is the water warm?)

    Thanks for sharing – and the pictures are great! (I love travel blogs that show real pictures, not stock photos that could make a rathole look like paradise.) Very nice, very tempting!

    • Hahaha! oh Holly, you crack me up!
      This place is a paradise and i really recommend adding this to your bucket list.
      “Helmet Diving” is walking on the seafloor wearing a diving helmet which enables you to breathe normally under the water while enjoying the marine life.
      It sounds cool, right? It can be scary at first, though.
      And don’t worry, there are no sharks!
      Thank you for dropping by!
      I love seeing real photos too. They inspire me more. :)
