The foreign tourists I met all keep saying "I'm swimming in the ocean at winter time" with gleeful smiles.
Quick, cheap fun
Talcum-powder white sand. Just ignore the horde.
Golden beach, fresh seafood, and cool waters makes up for the 6-hour boat ride, I think.
Borawan Island is a play on Boracay and Palawan, as homage for the sand of the former and the rock formations of the latter. No offense to the person who named it (or even to the people who make their living there), but they only got the rock formations right. Boracay sands it isn't, so we dubbed it "Batawan" instead (as in, sands of Batangas and rock formations of Palawan).
