I would like to take this moment to write this blog and share the memories that happened during the vacation of my family here in the Philippines.
It has been 5 years since the last time I saw them, they all migrated in different countries; Australia, UAE and Italy. The last time they were here is when I was in my sophomore year. So, yeah. I won’t go in details and be emotional in this blog. Continue browsing this post and look what we made during our short stay in Boracay–only four days – but we loved the Island
There’s no need to describe the place (Boracay Island), because the whole world knows that it’s a beautiful haven of fun here in the Philippines.
Here’s what we had August 8-12.
WELCOME to Alta Vista De Boracay…
Well, my wish came true and we finally went! We were so happy to stay in Alta Vista de Boracay —– it was such a memorable, fun trip. I seriously didn’t want it to end. We were pampered and relaxed, and yes, we slept and ate so well, we all had the best time together, which made us doubly happy. Bora is such a magical place for us, we’ve created more happy memories that will last a lifetime.
First day in the morning… Some were still napping and others were prepping up for the day’s adventure.
The Majestic infinity pool!
It is pretty hard to top a beach like Boracay, but I have to say, this infinity pool at the Alta Vista De Boracay may prove to be competition. The pool is just gorgeous, and with a view like that you really can’t go wrong. This is a great alternative if you get tired of swimming in the ocean.
The awe-mazing sunset!
This has to be my favorite reason as Boracay has the most beautiful sunset ever! I can never get enough of it, and I really made time to watch it every single day.

A warm and golden sunset.
Here are some of the best things to do in Boracay Island with family that we experienced on our short visit.
BORACAY ISLAND HOPPING TOUR:
Crocodile Island, Crystal Cove Island, Puka Beach, Ilig Iligan Beach, Punta Bunga Beach

Enjoying the calm-crystal water at Puka Beach.
Take a rest for a moment and enjoy the sounds of the wave of the ocean.
Seas the day by looking up the beautiful island.
Take a walk at the island’s powdery white sand and clear blue waters.
It was a fantastic way to spend the day. We loved visiting some of the other beaches and enjoying pretty decent snorkeling spot.

FLYING FISH (Unfortunately, I haven’t got a photo of this activity. )
A visit to the beach is not complete if you miss seeing the Blessed Virgin Mary’s grotto and take a picture of the beautiful image on top of the Boracay Rock in Station 1.

Halowich: The best soft-served mango ice cream in Boracay…
Since day 1, we’ve been seeing a lot of people with this yellow stuff in a plastic cup and immediately got curious. Just pass through D’Mall, look for a line and surely one of them lines will lead to Halowich. Such a tasty and creamy treat!
Try King Corn Boracay…
Also we snacked on corn on a cob while at the beach.
The Island is well-known for its vibrant, seven days a week nightlife. There are many different nightlife venues to choose from – from wild parties, to bars, to lounges with live music…
So, before heading to a nightlife in the Island, we had a quick photo shoot with my cousins and my kapatid.

Play Beach Volleyball with Locals…
As you walk along Boracay Beach, especially in Station 2 you will see people playing volleyball, most are local Filipinos who live on the island, however don’t be surprise if you are walikng down the beach and someone playing the volleyball ask you to join the this fun activity.
Jonah’s Fruit Shake & Snack Bar

DELIGHTFUL SEAFOOD AT D’ TALIPAPA
Special thanks to the vendor of this who pushes us to have a photos with their fresh sea creatures.
And while waiting for our mouthwatering food, It seems this lil’ one is hungry for our dinner.
Literally a wet market, D’ Talipapa is a place where you can buy fresh seafood or meat and have it cooked in one of the market’s restaurants that offer the service.
Meet a lovely creature…
And probably you’ll meet a new friend… A cutie dog who lived in the island.
Boracay Sand Sculpture
Anyone who has been to Boracay would definitely have at least one snapshot in the the beach with the sand sculpture in the background.
It was our last day in Boracay and we were decided to make the most out of it! We still had time to swim until we were negra and negro and buy pasalubongs. There were no more scheduled activities. If not swimming, we were just lounging by the beach, eating and drinking.
The last day…
To sum up, our short-stay in island has been really a magical and unforgettable one. We can’t wait to be back here anytime soon!
At the airport…
Here are the photos before the take-off.
It’s not goodbye, it’s see you soon, Boracay! Thank you for the fun and amazing experience!
Thank you so much for browsing this blog!
