Boracay Island Beach is a Paradise

Boracay Island Beach is overrated. But, its overratedness is something you’d always love despite.

It’s my first time in this island paradise and the moment my bare feet stepped on the white, talcum-powdered sand, it felt like I was finally home—the kind of home where you should be when the Northern Hemisphere is cold, wet, damp and freezing.

Sorry to my friends in the Northern part of the world, but life’s not fair, is it? While you are fully cloth there, I am having a life here that I deserve: swinging in the hammock while a shirtless waiter serve my pineapple fruitshakes. ūüėÄ

I really wish you’re with me right now so we could bury our feet together in the sand and drink all the margaritas and mojitos in this paradise.

Let these photos from Boracay Island Beach warm you wherever you are.

You can walk on / pass by this station by its shore¬†and experience the life of the moneyed tourist. ūüôā If you don’t mind the searing heat, this is the place to read, sleep while getting a tan while the rich are within the comfort of their huge beach umbrellas. I laid down here for twenty minutes—and that was it. The scorching sun was very nasty.¬†
