Boracay, among world's most romantic islands

Boracay, a favorite island destination in the country, has a new distinction.

Travel+Leisure ranked Boracay as the 5th most romantic island destinations in the magazine's February issue.

"Once a backpacking haven with only the most basic accommodations, this 5-mile-long island now rivals better-known Asian destinations such as Phuket and Koh Samui, Thailand. A 45-minute flight from Manila brings you to either Kalibo or Caticlan, where boats connect directly to White Beach, whose powdery sand may just be the softest in the world," T+L wrote.

It also cited Mandala Spa & Villas and the resort's yoga classes, the cliffside pool villa, and massage services, especially Filipino's traditional "hilot."
