BOROCAY, YOU ARE INDEED GORGEOUS
Last year, the girls and I had our annual girls-only trip at Borocay. There were plenty of hormones going around but it was fun. The moment I stepped onto the island, I knew it was paradise. In fact, it was surreal that the waters were so clear. Our boutique hotel was located at Station 3, a quieter part of the island. Despite it being quite a walk from all the major activities, it was a right choice for its serenity. Borocay's White Beach is separated into Station 1, 2 and 3; Station 1 being the higher grounds and luxurious resorts, Station 2 for the party scene and Station 3 for a quieter ambience. When travelling, I tend to opt for boutique hotels rather than big chained ones due to my fondness for a more intimate and tailored experience.
Borocay is a very picturesque island and that is without a doubt. Apart from going around with one of the girl's Go-Pro camera, most of our activities involve relaxing by the beach with local beers, taking strolls along the sand path, filling ourselves with pinoy food and indulging in a very relaxing massage. I couldn't remember the last time I had constant sand in between my toes for 72 hours. Although a self proclaimed near serial germaphobe, I was completely fine walking bare excluding the time where the sight of D'talipapa wet market with it's filthy wet floors gave me extreme cringes.
