Even after the six-month closure due to its rehabilitation, Boracay Island still captures the heart of tourists as it was recently recognized as 25 beaches rankings of an American travel website, TripAdvisor.
TripAdvisor gave Boracay’s White Beach the 9th position among 25 others for the four-kilometer main beach’s “calm, warm waters, gently sloping sand, very relaxing [environment]… possibly the most beautiful beach in Asia.”
Yapak Beach (Puka Shell Beach) of Boracay Island also took the 25th place.
Two other Philippine beaches also made it to this year’s elite list. These are Nacpan Beach at 13th, and Las Cabañas Beach at 22nd, both in El Nido, Palawan.
