While Boracay island is obviously popular around the world for its magnificent white sand beaches, it is also a golfer’s paradise. Golf in Boracay is definitely quite an experience.
There is only one golf course in the island, the Fairways and Bluewater Boracay Golf Course and County Club, but it is quite popular for golfers all over the Philippines and internationally. Even non-golfers visiting Boracay usually take a tricycle ride to the golf course just to enjoy the serenity and breath-taking view of the resort.
With 108 stylish units that are perfect for vacationing couples, guests and golf enthusiasts, the Fairways and Bluewater Boracay Resort sits on lush, green, rolling hills. It has its own private beach, the Lapuz-Lapuz white sand beach. Surrounded by a hilly tropical jungle, the resort offers 5-star accommodation and high-end suites that feature creative Spanish architecture. Golfers tee along the verdant green 18-hole par-72 championship golf course while viewing the turquoise sea from a distance. Avid golf fans should experience golfing in Boracay at least once in their lifetime and take in the pleasure of the sport when mixed with such scenery.
Boracay is one of the most popular island-resorts in the world and has been voted by a number of international travel agencies as the best tropical beach. After a leisurely game of golf, guests of the Fairways and Bluewater Boracay Resort have a lot more to enjoy.
White Beach, the island’s main attraction, is just a tricycle ride away (although the resort does offer a free shuttle service to White Beach). The 4-km stretch of powdery white sand is what makes Boracay a magical place. Strolling down White Beach and letting your bare feet sink into the fine sand as you enjoy the tropical breeze while watching the golden rays of the sun sink into the horizon is an experience that is comparable to none.
During the day, travelers can enjoy all sorts of water activities such as reef walking, glass bottom boat rides, jet-skiing, sailing on a paraw sailboat, island hopping, diving and snorkeling. There is also a long row of shops, boutiques and restaurants along White Beach, and more cheap shops along the back alleys. As day turns into night, the beach transforms into a long stretch of bars, drinking and parties.
D’Mall, the only decent mall in the island, is located at the center of White Beach. It is packed with thrift shops, boutiques and restaurants. Near it is D’Talipapa, or “wet market” in Filipino, where tourists can purchase live fishes and seafood to be cooked according to the diners’ fancy.
After a fun day at White Beach or at the other equally exciting beaches in Boracay, guests at the golf resort can return to their world-class suites in style – riding on horseback or careening on an All-terrain vehicle (ATV). They can then top their day with a relaxing dinner by the Lapuz-Lapuz beach as arranged by the resort, and ready themselves for more golf in Boracay the next day.
