Philippines’ resort island Boracay reopen

This resort island is strictly informal with an easy atmosphere

Boracay: Tourists are awaiting the island´s full recovery. Undersecretary Benito Bengzon Jr. reiterated that the Department of Tourism (DOT) is well on track with its 7.4 million target as the island’s closure also became an opportunity to introduce and boost travellers’ awareness of other tourism destinations in the Philippines.

“The fact that we have kept ourselves afloat is a very strong reflection of how resilient the industry is”, Bengzon said.

Despite the closure of one of the country’s flagship destinations, brand equity remains strong. The code in Boracay is strictly informal. There is an undeniable easy atmosphere in Boracay where walking barefoot than shod is the rule rather than the exception. White Beach is so fine, it feels like treading on miles of baby powder! No wonder, even swinging discos have the beach for a floor, giving dance a new twist.

The New Boracay

There are no hang-ups either in this island. At daytime, tourists having a soothing massage under the shade of a coconut tree beside the shoreline is a common sight. And from dusk to dawn, Boracay turns into one big party place where everyone is welcome to join in.

Among these developments are the new Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA) and an evident buildup in the accommodation sector expected to expand the destinations’ capacity in welcoming visitors from all over the world visiting resort island Boracay
