Borawan Island is a pristine paradise. You won't find resorts here. If you plan to go overnight, you have to bring your tents, camping gears and food supplies. Fortunately there is signal for mobile communications. And if you thirst for a cold coke, you can just text an old woman caretaker on the other side of the island and she'll come paddling her boat to deliver your ice-cold coca cola. The island is getting popular among outdoor adventurists and rock climbers. I joined the Voyager Adventure Club's visit to this island during a break on our training for Mt. Apo. We enjoyed rappelling down the tall rock walls that greet visitors if coming from Padre Burgos side of Quezon province. Such a lovely place great for rest and relaxation away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
