The Windy Other Side of Boracay – Bulabog Beach
Boracay Island is considered a paradise by many, and this is not far from the truth due to its white sandy beaches, cool blue waters, and scores of marine life around it. When you are planning a trip to this island, chances are that you will find yourself on the more populated side, which is White Beach. If you are into partying till dawn and crowds of people, this is the place to be, but if you want peace and quiet, you might do better by choosing to go to the other side of Boracay, which is the Bulabog Beach side.
Bulabog Beach is on the other side of the island, which is the eastern coast. It is 2 and a half kilometers long, which is shorter than its more popular counterpart by a few kilometers, but is still a pretty impressive stretch of beach that people can enjoy. Bulabog Beach also has quite a few hotels that people can stay at, but this area is not as congested as the beach on the other side, making it an ideal choice for those who want a quieter yet still exciting Boracay vacation.
For those who want to try new things, one of the activities you can indulge in here is kite surfing. The beach is still pretty enough, although the sand is not as powdery and the water is not as clean, since seaweeds and coconuts can be easily seen floating on the waters here. The place is not a good place for swimming since sea urchins, and other marine life that can be harmful to people are found here. What this place is ideal for is wind surfing and kite surfing, and is a great spot for those who want to learn how to do this as well as for those who are already experts at it.
To get to Bulabog Beach, you can simply walk from the west side of the island to the east side via the main road. There are a few areas where access roads can be found, one of which is located near D’Mall, across the lagoon. If you want to experience optimal kite boarding weather, Trip Guru suggests that you visit this part of Boracay between November and May, when the winds are high and great for such wind-dependent watersports.
