WHY: 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.
January in Boracay has one big plus: the world-famous Kalibo Ati-Atihan Festival, the Philippine mardi gras which is celebrated every third week of January. International sports events such as the Boracay International Funboard Cup and the Annual International Paraw Cup Challenge is held during January to February.
