I loved Boracay I just wished I had more time there. We were there for a wedding last week and it was wonderful. The best time to go is January to April becuase the weather is perfect! But July is the worst becuause of the weather and it gets too windy there. For a nice relaxing vacation spend a week on Boracay... shop at the d'mall, do some water activities, island hop, get a massage on the beach for $7US, and most important relax on one of the many beaches. It is very easy to get around either waking between stations or taking a motorbike. Also, many people speak English so it is very easy to communicate with them.

August finds Boracay some weeks prior to the beginning of the peak tourism season (approximately September/October - May/June) and, as such, it was quiet and relaxed. That said, perfect weather was not a guarantee and we did experience some cloud and a little rain during our week-long stay. We stayed at a reasonably priced, small hotel on the famous White Beach, a truly stunning beach incidentally but, again, our experience was of few tourists. Local leisure activity operators will approach you and actively hassle you to ride jet skis, go paragliding, or take a boat trip with snorkeling involved. All of these seemed affordable and satisfying, the boat trip in particular being a wonderful experience. Boracay was in the middle of rapid development at the time of the visit (2007) and reports from friends tell me it's gotten somewhat more built-up since then.

Hit the spot when I was about 15 years old. That's roughly 6 years from today, date July 6, 2012. Its good to hit the spot when its sunny, so schedule is a must consideration. I went there sometime in February, and though yes it has that fine white beach, it was full of seaweeds then because it was rainy that time. Wasn't able to explore it so much. I just stayed in Station 3. However, There were a lot of people there, and there was a tiangge too and of course, various restaurants around. They told me nightlife is different in Bora. It wouldn't be so bad to give it a try the next time I visit the island.
According to a friend who went there last year, there were already a lot of koreans out there, making you think if you are on a Philippine island or otherwise. Celebrities make it a point to go there, why dont you check it for yourself. :))

Boracay Island is a small island getaway that is easily accessible from Manila - a 1hr flight, then a short boat trip.
Boasting beautiful white sand beaches and unbelievably clear water, Boracay is a really wonderful spot to spend a beach holiday if you're looking for a good mix of beautiful scenery, buzzing nightlife, a great selection of restaurants and shopping, and a wide range of activities. It does feel a bit overcrowded at times, so avoid Boracay if you're looking for peace and quiet.

Boracay has amazing white beaches but a little touristy for my liking. Station 1 and 2 are the best places to stay. Station 1 being more expensive and Station 2 is where the party is at!! Not a lot to do in Boracay, other than relax and drink cocktails, definitely not a bad way to spend time on your holiday
