10 Boracay photos that would still make you go there

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”.

Nowadays, the famous Boracay Island gets mixed of reactions – both good and bad. Despite this negativity, there are still good reasons to go there, so I’m posting 10 photos, that I hope would motivate you to go there.
