Boracay's white-sand beaches, clear waters and dazzling tropical vistas afford cruisers a blissful time in port on this small island in the Philippines. Only smaller ships can embark on Boracay cruises, as large ships that accommodate more than 2,000 passengers are not currently permitted to call at Boracay.
Relaxing beach days are the best way to take advantage of the island's picture-perfect beaches. Boracay's beaches are wide and dotted with resorts and small stands selling handmade souvenirs. Snorkeling is popular here, as unclouded ocean waters make it easy to see colorful marine life and coral reefs.
