It's been years since I was in Boracay, but last week, I just had to get to the beach and it was practically a no-brainer for me.
My love affair with beaches started in Boracay. Cliche it may be, but its powdery white sand and clear waters captured my heart; and to be honest, I think it's hard to beat. Of course, I haven't been to El Nido, so...
There's also the fact that a lot of people say Boracay is overrated, expensive, too commercialized, and not worth visiting anymore.
