Moving to Boracay Island

Living in Boracay Island is very popular among some people looking to retire and be a beach bum. What is living on Boracay like and is it for you?

I will warn you, there is about a million tourist come through a year!

Before we start, understand that I am not a fan on Boracay Island and think is is a cheap knockoff of Hawaii. It use to have an amazing beach and it has been over ran by Koreans and Chinese tourists.

However, being the beach bum does really make some expats excited. Tim Tebow said it is his favorite place in the world once.

positives of living on Boracay Island?

Well, you have one of the best sunsets in the world. That alone could be a big draw. You also have something touristy to do any day of the week. Both of those are great to have at your fingertips.

The other positive is the development. You have everything you need, including Friday’s Hamburgers, right there and you would not need to leave the island very often for much.

LBC also delivers anything you need to the island from Manila so that is nice.

and the negatives

Well, the government there is corrupt as hell! Everything has a form and a fee and they add up. The current mayor, John Yap is probably the worst mayor in the country for this.

Add to that, you have a million tourist coming and destroying the island on their vacation. It has and does alot of damage to the place.

Another issue is all the vendors selling you everything from hats to sunglasses to jet ski package every 10 feet. It gets annoying.

The big issue for me is the growing prostitution problem on Boracay Island. It is out of control and the Police are doing nothing to stop it.
