The palm-studded island of Boracay - with its
white, talcum-fine beach, balmy weather and warm,
crystalline waters - is like a hypnotic magnet
that lures many to a lotus existence.
In this tiny, butterfly-shaped island at the
northwestern tip of Panay in Western Visayas,
days can be spent by simply lazing on the beach
and nights are for indulging in the tropical party
Boracay is an anchor tourist destination and
one of the 7,000 times more islands that make
up the Philippine archipelago.
