I have been to more than 65 countries and seen sunsets in hundreds of places around the world, but i must say that Boracay is in my top5 for sunsets.
The place does not just have really nice sunsets, but they also tend to have a lot of sailing boats returning home by the time the sun sets and that gives the place a special atmosphere to see the sunset with all the sails in the background.
Boracay is one of the few places in the world where i always make sure to make it down to the beach for the sunset.
Waiting for the sunset in boracay is different like in any other beaches.
Kill time before the sunset by:
-enjoy walking alone, w/ friends until you get to the end side of the beach
-settle in a comfy place or in a great view then have your photos taken but don't use your cam so much that it get out of battery
- enjoy being burn by the sun til its gone
basically anyone knows the hows/whats/wheres
just email me if you have questions about boracay since I've been there twice and will there again soon ;)
One favorite activity in the island is to wait for sun to set, of which the view is one of the best in the world. Gather ‘round and swap stories. Relax as you enjoy the dramatic view nature has provided.
Cheap yet fun way of enjoying Boracay... Sunset Viewing...
Most of the tourists both local and foreign awaits this beautiful sunset daily.
A magnificent view of the Sun as it sets down and pave its way to the moon :-)
Just make sure you have our camera ready to get a shot of this beautiful masterpiece.
Being one of the most photographed, this should not be missed. Unfortunately for us, we didn't get that perfect-perfect sunset, but what we got is still an amazing display of colors. When the horizon starts that dramatic change of colors, position your camera and don't forget to get yourself in the picture.
Aside from Boracay sunset and the white sand, the next most photographed in boracay is Willy's rock. i am not sure if it was man-made or not, but it definitely added some rocky charm to the sandy whiteness of boracay. during high tides, the only visible part of it are the grotto & the trees. and it's where most avid sunset fanatics strike a pose for that sunset photoops
The most photographed scene in Boracay.
The trick with the camera is to have Manual settings - adjusting and getting the correct balance of the Shutter Speed (Tv) and Aperture Priority (Av) settings for that awesome Sunset picture. With the advent of Digital Photography, experimenting w/ as many shots in different settings would somehow fine tune everything till you get that awesome shot you've been wanting for.
You can`t leave Boracay without taking pictures of the breathtaking sunsets. If the weather is fine you can expect a "new" sunset every evening: Colors from deep blue till dark red - that`s the time people gather together in the small bars and pubs to have there sunset cocktail - it takes only 15 minutes till the sun seams to sink into the ocean and every evening the travelers are sure: This sunset was the most spectacular we have ever witnessed - but only until they see the next one tomorrow !
I cant express my feelings at this time for this kind of views. You probably amaze it, no one can ignore that kinds of sunsets. I used to think sometimes is this what God really created for us?. Oh yes! and so if ever you will have a trip in Boracay? just dont forget to take a picture. Okay? he he he
You cant imagine how pretty sunset show's to every one. I really dont miss watching sunset in Boracay if you do missed it? then so sorry for you!. Anywhere and everywhere when it comes of sunsets it always shows the perfect one.. Here in Boracay is one of the most sunset i ever seen.
There's nuthing others can do when the times is nearly 5, Sunset is on her way to show the peoples how really amazing watching sunset. I amazed it so much those color, those raiming light that creats different color, the water beggin to shin. And people start taking a picture of it. Sitting in the sand while holding your camera and ready to take a picture of the views is really nice feeling. You are excited to your camera if you took it good or not and so you can delete it fast and took a pic again.
This is a given, but i just thought i should reiterate what everyone has said before. You absolutely have to take the time to watch a sunset. Whether you do it every night or just catch it once, its something you cant miss. Everyone is different and Boracay has some of the best. I tried to take a good picture of one, but i guess this is the best i could catch. Ive seen plenty of pics on here and they are amazing!!
Sun set in Boracay is the best sun set in the Philippines, where you can watch the sun goes down and shine of it telling asking you to watch him again the other next day. It is really great and sweet. How amazing world we have. When the sun goes down people are ready to took a picture with it for the different color of the sky he give that makes you really amazed! I do wait always the sunset there and took a picture. If you like to more close the sun even that your digital cam had a zoom? You can ride boat sailing or you can even do Para sailing just to look closer. So, just enjoy it.
I'm a sunset junkie. So, I try to look for the best spot in each place I visit to get the best view of the local sunset. In Boracay, one of the best vantage points for this is the waterfront of Jonah's Fruit Shakes near Boat Station 1. From there, not only can you enjoy the best fruit shakes south of Manila while waiting for the perfect moment to catch your sunset, you would also get the setting sun against one of Boracay's landmarks- Willy's Rock.
Watching sunset is a must on Boracay. The long white beach is on the western side of the island and also all the resorts and facilities are there. This pic was taken when we just arrived on the island.
