Bulabog, White and Union Beaches - Kitesurfing Boracay, Philippines

Boracay is one of the most beautiful islands in the Philippines. Apart from its white sandy beaches, Boracay is also famous for being one of the world's top destinations for Kitesurfers. Dog-bone shaped island´s windy weather is divided into two seasons locally known as the Amihan and Habagat. The switch in wind direction on Boracay is the main indicator of the switch between the Amihan and Habagat seasonal patterns. As everything revolves around the wind here, it is not surprising that Boracay is considered the best Kite-Wind Surfing destination in Asia. If you are going to the island, taking the Kiteboarding course is practically an obligation.
