Hidden away on the northwest tip of Panay Island in the Philippines is a hub of beautiful beaches and coves known as Boracay. Comprising some of the world’s most amazing stretches of sand and clearest waters, the area has always been a top destination for relaxation but is now re-emerging as a haven for families.
With an abundance of leisure activities at your fingertips - such as scuba diving, helmet diving, snorkeling, windsurfing, kite-boarding, parasailing or simply relaxing on the beach - you will never be short on things to do. The island also boasts an 18-hole, par 72 golf course designed by Graham Marsh for families itching to tee off.
As of 2010 Boracay has in excess of 350 beach resorts with many catering especially to families with young children.
The Shangri-La Boracay Resort and Spa has an adventure and entertainment zone children will never bore of. Featuring an exciting indoor playground complete with drop slide and activity corner, the Adventure Zone provides endless amusement. The Entertainment Centre houses arcade games, billiards, table tennis, karaoke rooms and food has all of the fun essentials for the junior tourist. There are also fish feedings in their Chi Spa every day.
Peak season for Boracay begins in October and runs through until June so there’s no time like the present to start booking your next family vacation.
