Summer is definitely more fun with NIVEA SUN! My top summer wonder is Boracay!

Summer is here! Are you excited? Me too!.. I just wanted to share to you my top Summer Wonders here in the Philippines where I would like to visit and have fun while it's summer (how I wish???). I'm sorry because I am sharing with you my top pick not based on my own experiences but it is based on my on going research and reader's feedback. Well, I know some of you are very excited to go on vacation, these top pick of mine are very nice place to enjoy your summer.

Boracay, Aklan - Boracay is probably the most well known place in the Philippines right now having earned the reputation as being the place to be for beach fun and parties year round.
The name Boracay is attributed to different origins. One story says that it is derived from the local word "borac" which means white cotton with characteristics close to the color and texture of Boracay's white sugary and powdery sand. Another credits the name to local words "bora," meaning bubbles, and "bocay," meaning white. Yet another version dating back to the Spanish era says the name is derived from "sagay," the word for shell, and "boray," the word for seed.

Boracay Island is located off the northwest corner of Panay Island, and belongs to the Western Visayas island-group, or Region VI, of the Philippines. The island is approximately seven kilometers long, dog-bone shaped with the narrowest spot being less than one kilometer wide, and has a total land area of 10.32 square kilometers.

Leisure activities available on or near Boracay include scuba diving, snorkeling, windsurfing, kiteboarding, cliff diving, and beach relaxation.Boracay offers a wide range of restaurants, bars, pubs, and nightclubs.

Boracay is served by two airports in Aklan province: one in Kalibo and Godofredo P. Ramos Airport (commonly referred to as "Caticlan airport") in Malay.
The western part of the Strong Republic Nautical Highway (SRNH) passes through Caticlan, with car ferries from Roxas, Oriental Mindoro docking at the Caticlan jetty port. Several bus companies operate provincial bus routes from Manila which pass through Caticlan via the SRNH.
The two main modes of transport are via motor-tricycles along the main road or by walking along the beaches. Pedicabs are also available for transport along the Beachfront Path. Other means of transportation include mountain bikes, quadbikes and motorbikes, all of which can be rented.

You shouldn't missed to visit Boracay and there's a lot more. You’ll definitely never run out of things to do and see  there. Enjoy your summer vacations! This is my entry for Nivea 7 Summer Wonders Blogger Contest!
