Experience the Best of Boracay Island - The Best Island in the World

Boracay Island

If you want a very relaxing, relatively empty, much quieter and is very different from those beaches in Boracay then do not vacillate to explore Puka Beach. This is a good spot for a picnic. If you are planning to visit Puka Beach, it is advisable to bring your own foods and drinks for you to save some expenses... Hehehe.

To get there: You can hire a tricycle in less than 15-20 minutes from central white Beach. Puka Beach is considered as the second longest beach with deeper and rougher water than other beaches in Boracay. Puka Beach is famous for having plenty of puka shells.

Boracay Island

Experience the best of Boracay! Boracay is a beautiful island located in Panay Island in the central area of the Philippines ( Western Visayas) it is about 200 miles or approximately 315 km. from Manila or from nearby places such as Cebu and Davao. Tricycles are the primary mode of transportation on the island. Boracay has been named the Best Island in the World by an International Travel Magazine. You can reach Boracay by air or sea. So come and join with me in Boracay, let's explore the fantastic beauty of Boracay Island.

Find great hotels in Boracay that will surely fit your budget. Boracay offers you beachfront convenience at affordable rates or you can choose hotels that are conveniently located just footsteps away from white beach.

Majestic Tinuy-an Falls - The Niagara Falls of the Philippines

Among the falls I visited (Tumalog Water Falls in Oslob Cebu, Katibawasan Falls in Camiguin Island, Bugtong Bato Falls in Tibiao Antique, Cambugahay Falls in Siquijor, Kawasan Falls in Badian Cebu, Samboan Hidden Falls in  Cebu and Gunhuban Falls at Buli, Bato, Leyte). I considered Tinuy-an Falls is one of the most majestic or amazing waterfalls in the Philippines. The scenic view of the falls can relieve all of your stress and problems for a while. Hehehe. Tinuy-an Falls is also considered as the top wonders in Surigao del Sur. One of the widest in the country and they called it as "The Niagara Falls of the Philippines"

Tinuy-an Falls is located in Barangay Borboanan, Bislig City, Surigao del Sur in the Southern Philippines Island of Mindanao. Standing at 55 meters (180 feet) tall and 95 meters wide, a white water curtain that flows in three levels. The trip going to Tinuy-an Falls was quite long enough,  tortuous and rugged but when I arrived I got speechless. So much fun and earth shaking happiness.  A great experience indeed, so don't miss the chance to drop by and explore the beauty of Tinuy-an Falls.

How to get there

Is quite difficult to get there. There is no regular public transportation going to the place. You should hire a habal-habal (motorbike) to reach the place. 

Bislig City can be reached by taking any of the daily scheduled airlines (Cebu Pacific, Airphil Express and other airlines) from Manila or Cebu via Davao City, Butuan City or Surigao City. You can take regular trips of aircon and non-aircon buses (Bislig route). Upon reaching the Mangagoy Integrated Terminal in Bislig, there are numerous habal-habals or motorbikes that go to Barangay Borboanan where the waterfall is located.

 Enjoy your trip and be safe!

My Expenses

Habal-habal (motorbike) pakyaw - Php  1000.00 

Entrance Fee - 5.00

Continuation of expenses here. (Two days trip, including Enchanted River and Island Hopping in Hinatuan)
