The island of Boracay in the Philippines is famous for its white sugary and powdery sand and has been awarded by multiple international travel magazines as one of the best beaches in the world. The movie Too Late The Hero starring Michael Caine and Henry Fonda was shot on this island in the 1970’s just as tourism was slowly coming in. I visited this island 3 times and this photo was taken during my second visit around February of 2009 using a Samsung point and shoot camera, which I bought at Walmart for just $75. This photo was taken near my hotel at the rocky Diniwid Beach in the northwest part of the island where it’s mostly private resorts and is therefore less crowded and more peaceful. The main beach of the island is the White Beach, which can be accessed by a foot path from Diniwid, and is about 2.5 miles (4 kms) long and lined with hotels, restaurants and shops.
