In the 1950s, the Island was initially a vegetable and fruit plantation land, then became popular for tourists in 1970s, most likely after a Hollywood movie Too Late the Hero was filmed there.

Boracay became internationally well-known even voted as the best island in the world in 2012.

But lately, it is receiving a lot of criticism for its over-development, even planning to cut the remaining group of trees to make way for new resort structures. Also, the problem of sanitation that might affect its drink-water. One newspaper entitled its article with “Boracay: On the edge of disaster”.
