Boracay is hailed as the 2nd Best Beach Destination in the World in the recently concluded 2011 Travelers' Choice® Beaches awards. Travelers all over the world, particularly the Europeans, Koreans, and the Filipinos, love to visit the beautiful island of Boracay. It is undoubtedly more fun in the Philippines! 


I previously worked as a researcher in a transport group company and my job gave me the privilege to travel in different parts of the country. During this time, my wanderlust was born. 

In the summer of 2006, we had a trip in Iloilo and most of the tourists in our ferry trip were on their way to the famous island of Boracay. As we touched down Iloilo and while we were having our breakfast at Iloilo City Lapaz Bachoy, we envied the tourists who were busy chatting about Boracay, so we had an on-the-spur of the moment decision to have a side trip on this famous beach. The decision was really abrupt! With no travel plans at all and no idea of the travel time and how to go there. We were 4 in the group and the 3 of us were first timers. Since it was a great opportunity at hand, we did not hesitate with our decision to visit Boracay.

Canyon Cove, Nasugbu Batangas

It usually takes a long boat ride to take you into a remote island with a beautiful beach. Still, there are some beach resorts at the mainland which can take your breath away.

Canyon Cove Beach Resort, located in Nasugbu, Batangas, is a 4 hour-drive destination from Metro Manila. Upon entrance, you will feel that you will be having a grand vacation in an exclusive condominium/hotel. The swimming pools are surrounded by condo-hotel structures with nice ambiance and landscaping.
