Boracay is one of the most well-known holiday destinations in the Philippines and caters to many different types of travelers from the backpackers, families. Located 2km off the northwest tip of Panay Island in the Visayas. Boracay is an award-winning island with awards such as 'Best Island' and 'Best Beach' as part of its accolades. With a stunning world-famous 4km long White Beach, numerous beaches and coves, and hundreds of bars and restaurants, Boracay is well deserving of all its awards. After a short closure to ensure that the island returns to its former pristine condition and also to improve on its current infrastructure, the island has now reopened with better policies in order the island remains protected.
In terms of climate, the months of February to May are the driest, which means there’s very little chance that unexpected showers would ruin your itinerary. However, it is also considered high season (peaking during Holy Week), so prepare to share the island with thousands of tourists. If you don't like big crowds, but you also want relatively pleasant weather, November to January is an ideal time to visit as long as you stay away from the days leading to Christmas and New Year as the island will be crowded with tourists and part-goers.

If you're planning to experience the ultimate Boracay holiday with cloudless blue skies and a calm, glassy sea, then you'll want to time your trip during the dry season which typically runs from November to May. If cooler temperatures are also preferable, then stick with the months closer to the beginning of the dry season. By March, temperatures often reach the high 30˚ Celsius. However, keep in mind that even in the dry season, it's not uncommon to experience some rain. Heavy all-day rain showers like what you might experience during the rainy season are unlikely, though.
