Boracay Island makes list of world's best beaches

BORACAY, Aklan: Internet search engine Yahoo! and popular website included this resort island on their list of the world's

10 best beaches.

Yahoo! ranked Boracay seventh while, which claims more than

five million site visitors monthly, placed Boracay on the eighth spot.

According to Web traffic analysis companies, Yahoo! has been the most

visited website on the Internet, with more than 412 million unique

users., on the other hand, is a Canadian-based, free online

men's Web portal. Its sections feature topics that are pertinent to

men. Among its sections are Fashion & Lifestyle, Health & Sports and

Dating & Love.

With this positive exposure in the worldwide Web, Gov. Carlito Marquez

of Aklan is confident that business will be good in this resort island.

Boracay is famous for its powdery white sand, pristine waters and lush

tropical forests.

In coming out with their lists, Yahoo! and emphasized the

"numerous positive feedback" they received from website readers

and the wide range of available attractions each chosen beach offers.

In late 1980s, this resort island was named by two travel magazines as

one of the world's top 10 beaches, too. The title disappeared after

the issue on coliform contamination hit this resort island in mid-1990s.

Marquez attributed Bora­cay's positive image abroad to the

Department of Tourism's aggressive promotional activities.

Boracay's two primary tourism beaches, White Beach and Bulabog

Beach, are located on opposite sides of the island's narrow central

area. White Beach faces westwards and Bulabog Beach faces eastwards. The

island also has several other beaches.

White Beach is the main tourism beach. It is a bit over four kilometers

long and is lined with resorts, hotels, lodging houses, restaurants, and

other tourism-related businesses.

In the central portion, for about two kilometers, there is a footpath

known as the beachfront path separating the beach itself from the

establishments located along it.

North and south of the beachfront path, beachfront establishments do

literally front along the beach itself.

Several roads and paths connect the beachfront path with Boracay's

main road, a vehicular road which runs the length of the island. At the

extreme northern end of White Beach, a footpath runs around the headland

there and connects White Beach with Diniwid Beach.

Across the island from White Beach is Bulabog Beach, a secondary tourism

beach and Boracay's main wind­surfing and kiteboarding area.
