Being just a small island in the Philippines, Boracay still keeps its crown as the main tourist attraction. This place has already received numerous awards due to its rich variety of active entertainment. In particular, the island was honored as number one for Condé Nast Traveler’s list of top 10 destinations to visit in 2016.

Kitesurfing on Boracay in Philippines - Best Season

The reason for such a popularity is quite evident. Starting from November to April, there is the “Amihan” season in Boracay characterized by cooler temperatures, little or no rainfall, and what's the most important—northeast wind that makes for perfect kitesurfing and windsurfing. Bulabog Beach located in the east is absolutely the favourite, as it's always windy. Another famous spot on Boracay is the White Beach on the western coastline—the water there seems to be impeccable these days. In fact, wherever you go on the island, you will definitely find some pleasant things to do there.

Being the most popular resort for water sports, Boracay is not the only one. If you are looking for a less crowded place, try Pagudpud Peninsula, the rural northern area of the Philippines; Bagasbas Beach, a lovely fishing town popular with surfers; or some spots at Coron and other Calamianes Islands. However, seasons may differ a bit at various islands due to wind change, so mind to check the weather forecast.
