From Sampaguita Gardens Resort, I would recommend a tour of the fishing town of New Washington, Aklan. Then, you may proceed to the Ati-Atihan  town of Kalibo, the capital of the province. From there, Barangay Caticlan in the town of Malay is just an hour and a half drive away by van or bus. Caticlan is the jump-off point to the world-famous pristine beach of Boracay Island.
