Boracay is Ranked 2nd in "Best Beaches in the World" by TripAdvisor

A travel website has named the Philippines’ famous Boracay Island as the best beach in Asia. The website's Travelers’ Choice 2011 also voted the island as ranked second "Best Beaches in the World" for 2011.

Boracay was ranked second in TripAdvisor's Traveler's Choice roster for the "Best Beaches in the World" for 2011. The website picked 25 spots all over the world that boast of great beaches. TripAdvisor commended Boracay: "At only 4.5 miles long, Boracay is small enough to navigate by rented bicycle or motorbike. But don't let its small size fool you—you'll have several excellent beaches to choose from. Yapak Beach is known for beautiful white shells; White Beach has picture-perfect sunsets; and Balinghai Beach is a secluded spot, perfect for honeymooners. As long as you visit during dry season, you'll agree this is one of the best beach destinations in the world."
