Boracay Beach General Overview: Red Coconut Hotel
Boracay is interesting since it is the reverse of Phuket here life is the beach. In front of the hotel they have beach chairs out on the beach by day and at night the beach becomes an extended dinning room. P.I. is in an El Nino generated drought in March of 2010, so the weather was excellent, for those midnight strolls on the beach under a full moon where one passes live bands every 300 meters or so.
The beach use is well organized by Boat Stations based on the period of day to allow all to use the beach with plenty of tourist police to make sure schedule stays in place. At night the boat boys sit in groups on the beach socializing sitting in circles sharing drinks not bothering anyone.
I was on the beach at Red Coconut Resort between stations 1 and 2. Close to the shopping mall and away enough from the band areas for a quiet evening. They have a fresh water pool great for a dip before returning to your room. Their breakfast service was first rate and there is a nice bar right along the beach walk and great for people watching. I have attached some pictures. The staff there is friendly accommodating and well organized. Current info and rates see their website: http://redcoconutboracay.comMore
