Boracay Island in Malay Aklan received numerous praises and international awards as one of best beach destinations in the world today. It is my first time to be in the island so I have a big expectations hearing great things about the place.
We depart from Clark International Airport in Pampanga via Tiger Air at around 3:45 pm to Kalibo Airport with 1 hour flight, took more than 2 hours bus travel from the Airport to Caticlan Seaport and lastly about 15 minutes boat ride to the island and 15 minutes shuttle ride to the hotel. It’s really tiring to go to the island, taking all mode of transportation via air, land and water.
I think it’s around 8 pm when we arrived at La Carmela De Boracay, a decent hotel room was given to us with no Wifi and very weak signal for Globe Telecom. Nice One! You need to go to the Lobby just to have access to Wifi.Grrrr!
We quickly settled our things and go out for the dinner. We took a long walk from Station 1-3 to find a restaurant that can offer good food but cheap but we end up with Andok’s Litsong Manok. The roasted chicken and chopseuy is a big disappointment! If I’m not hungry I will never eat such food! Shame on them! Expensive and worst roasted chicken I ever tasted!
After that terrible dinner with took a walk again and look for dessert, as usual everything is expensive, so we decided to have Mcdo dessert coke float and sundae cost Php35 each, higher by Php10, they are not following the SRP of Php25! This island is really for the rich! Limited budget traveler like me will not survive in the island! We took a walk to enjoy what the island has to ever at night.
We woke up early to enjoy the view of the sea in the morning. And look for an activity to do in the Island for the day. We booked for Parasailing in the morning and Zorb in the afternoon at Php1,300 per person.
After we took our breakfast and a little bit of rest we head up to do the first activity which is Parasailing. It is my first time to experience this kind of activity, I was excited and a little bit nervous at the same time.
After parasailing, we just relax and enjoy the beauty of the island, walking around and looking for some items to bring as pasalubong in D Mall. And took our lunch in the area.
It’s really HOT! I mean it! I should wear sando but I can’t bear the heat! So I end up half naked. 🙂
In the afternoon, we took the shuttle ride going to Fairways and Bluewater Newcoast to do the 2nd and last activity which is the Zorb. I have no idea how it is until I saw the giant ball! LOL! That’s it! hehehe
It was a fun experience! We enjoyed also the view of the beach front of Fairways and Bluewater Newcoast which is really stunning! We took a few shot! Mmmm actually many! LOL!
After that fun activity, we headed back to the hotel to have a wonderful shots of the sunset! What a view! Very romantic! Lovely!
After that, we took a rest and grab our dinner at the hotel in the beach front. It’s a wonderful day in the island. 🙂
For this day, we only grab our breakfast and stayed in the hotel room for we are checking out at 9:30 am to catch up our flight going back to Pampanga at 3:45 in the afternoon.
Boracay is a wonderful island, so many things to do, places to go and to dine but I must say that this place is really for those people who has money to spend. Almost everything in the island is EXPENSIVE. I had a good experience but somewhat disappointed for I expected too much. I’m still happy for I visited the island and had a wonderful photos! 😀
