Amazing Sunrise and Sunset in Boracay
The amazing sunrise and sunset in Boracay are something to look forward to. The sunrise is equally beautiful, so do not miss this! It’s always a wonderful thing to welcome the new day by the beach in this way. We woke up at around 5 am and had a dip while enjoying the serenity of the place. It was really an experience to savor and remember!
You can pick your favorite spot for perfect place to watch sunset between 5 to 6 PM. During our time, the colors of the sunset varied from fiery red to red-orange to pink, and everything in between.
One of the things we did during most of our stay was walking down the length of White Beach especially during sunset. The beach is facing the west, so it is one of the perfect spots offering the spectacular view of the sunset. We watched the sun sinking slowly below the horizon.
