The Pacific Island Paradise

16

Boracay is considered as one of the best beaches in the Philippines and as noted by some in the world! Everyone must come here at least once in their life and I’ve got the pictures to prove why!

This pacific island paradise is called Boracay, the most popular beach in the Philippines. I wouldn’t be surprised of there were several other LomoLocations dedicated to this beach — and this is my submission, unable to resist contributing my own experience to the community.

Boracay is a 4km long beach with crystal blue waters and white sand! It is the most traveled to beach destination in the Philippines. Apart from its beautiful beach, it has a lot of luxurious resorts, amazing variety of restaurant (and amazingly delicious “street foods”) and tons of fun activities to do! I would certainly recommend to staying at least four days to fully enjoy all that this place can offer! It’s high season (when the waters are clear, and the weather is perfect) starts on October and end in May.

Normally, around 50 to 80 percent of vacationers in Boracay are foreigners! It can be a bit expensive for Filipinos to come here since but with early planning, reservations and ticket purchases, it can be as affordable as going to the regular beaches!

I went to Boracay during the Christmas break to spend time with my friends (and my cameras, Haha). Me, being an excited “lomographer,” brought 4 of my film cameras and made sure I spent quality time with each one of them during my trip! Everywhere I went, there was something worth taking a shot off! Every time I found myself admiring the view, I automatically took a shot of it remember not to think and to just shoot!!

The pictures I have uploaded here feature the beach and my documentation of four days and three nights of relaxation and pure bliss! As I traveled back home, I couldn’t wait to get my films developed and scanned! If only establishments were open and operating during New Year’s Eve, I would’ve directly gone to the photolab straight from the airport!

*These shots were taken with Diana F+, Supersampler and Pentax MV-1.
