Can't Get Over Boracay

I have been to Boracay...five times already but I just can't get over this place!  Since 2010, my wife and I has made this island paradise our yearly R and R (rest and recreation) destination.  

Being a photography buff, the beach alone offers a plethora of  photo opportunities!  You can capture the sun rise and fall in glorious majesty; capture the "paraws" at full mast as they knife through the water or as they lay static on the beach front; and snap photos of the many beach characters abound from the fire dancers, the henna artists, the activity hawkers, the massage specialist, to the Korean tourists who seemingly compose the majority of the tourist population! 

Photography aside, the island offers a variety of activities without much worry as how to get there.  Everything is transacted on the beach front:  water activities such as "paraw" sailing, scuba diving, snorkeling, para-sailing, cliff diving; and, land activities like motorbiking, ATV or buggy car trekking, mountain biking, and horse back riding.

Now if you go hungry after all the activities, food establishments line up the beach front to cater to your gastronomical desires!  They offer international cuisines that suit your liking.  Rest assured, you will not go hungry in this place if you have the dough to spend.  If you're on a budget, you can attend the numerous hotel offers of buffet lunch or dinner by enduring 1 1/2 hour presentation.  Not a bad deal, eh?

If you think Boracay wanes to a halt by sunset---guess again!  When the beach activity closes, the night parties begin!   The island is abound with bars and clubs that would definitely satisfy the party goer!  Basically, the island never sleeps! just can't get enough of this place!
