Stunning rock formations in Boracay Island

I took these photographs of rock formations at the far end of Station 3 in the world-famous Boracay Island, Philippines. The place is ideal for those who want to be free and wild.

The place is so inviting you wouldn’t have a second thought of swimming.

Getting there. The tiny island of Boracay belongs to Aklan in Panay, south of the bustling crowded and fast pace city of Manila. Its capital town of Kalibo, where the world-renowned Sto. Niño Ati-Atihan Festival is annually celebrated, is a 50-minute away from Manila by plane.

Another gateway and jump-off point to Boracay is Caticlan, about 80 minutes from Manila by plane. Flights are offered daily at Godofredo Ramost Airport. To reach Boracay Island, tourists must set their feet first on the shores of Caticlan. Separated from the island of Boracay by about 1.2 kilometers, it is both the entry point and the exit point.
