Willy's rock on the beach on Boracay Island, Philippines

Cruise to Boracay, Philippines

More than 7,000 islands make up the Philippines, and Boracay is the most popular spot among them for tropical beachside getaways. Sink your toes into the sugar-white sand at aptly named White Beach, and slurp cold coconut water straight from the fruit under the shade of a palm tree. Cruise to Boracay and hike up Mount Luho, the island's highest point, and spot Philippine eagles above the tree tops. Or spend your day island-hopping and check out the equally stunning beaches just off the shore from Boracay — see abundant marine life off Crocodile Island, snorkel the clear blue waters off Crystal Cove, or turn up the thrill with cliff-diving off Magic Island.
