Summer wouldn’t be summer without going to the beach.
Since most of us weren’t able to fully experience summer last year due to the community quarantine, the need to just go to the beach is at an all-time high right now - and we perfectly understand. Add to that the quarantine fatigue that just seems to not go away, the itch to dig your toes in the sand and to swim in the refreshing ocean can be somewhat desperate.
Now, if there’s one beach destination that is on top of our mind to go to, it would be Boracay.
Ever since its island overall clean-up, we know most of you haven’t been backed there yet. That’s why it’s exactly the perfect beach destination to go to this summer.
Just imagine the crystal blue waters, fine white sand, and luscious thick forest… Boracay is the tropical paradise you need to visit as soon you can this summer.
