The Visayas region
The Visayas are the group of islands that make up the central Philippines, including most of the islands between Luzon in the north (were Manila is located), Mindanao, in the south, and Palawan in the east. Major islands in the Visayas include Bohol, Cebu, Leyte, Negros, Panay, Romblon, Samar, and Siquijor. The islands often vary in topography and culture. In addition to the beaches found on islands such as Boracay and Cebu, the region is rich in history. On the island of Mactan, just off the coast of Cebu is the monument to Chief Lapu-Lapu, who killed Ferdinand Magellan in the Battle of Mactan Island on 27 April 1521. The island of Leyte is where General Douglas MacArthur lead the invasion to expel the Japanese from the Philippines in 1944. It is also the island on which Magellan first landed in the Philippines in 1521.
There are many hidden treasure in the Visayas region. Pristine beaches are many, with Boracay's White Beach being the most famous. In addition, the beautiful tropical landscape, and warm, friendly people make the Visayas a great region to explore.
Boracay Island is located at the northern tip of the bigger island of Panay in the Visayas region. Until the 1970's, the island remained unknown to most outside of the Visayas region. In the '70's it was "discovered" by hippies who added it to their worldwide travel network. Gradually, the island became better known to the outside world because of it's incredible white-sand beach stretching for more than 4 kilometers. As a vacation destination, Boracay, really became popular only about 5 years ago.
The island is easy to get around, since it is only 7 kilometers long and 1 kilometer at its widest point. There are only three small villages on the island. These "barangays" are Yapac, Balabag, and Manoc-Manoc. Before tourism, the major occupation was fishing and still is for many native islanders. Drop by Diniwid Beach, north of White Beach, early in the morning and choose from the catch-of-the-day. The pristine waters have made Boracay a favourite diving destination. Kite boarding and windsurfing also attract large numbers of enthusiests.
After sunset, White Beach nightlife is hard to resist. Restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and beach parties offer something for everyone.
If you prefer something far from the madding crowds, areas at the north end of the island, such as Diniwid and Puka beaches provide tranquil small beaches and lush tropical forests.
