When I read that Le Soleil de Boracay was steps away from Boracay’s White Beach, I envisioned a property with beach access. I was, however, proven wrong on a recent trip to the hotel. I discovered to my surprise that this hotel was situated right on the beach. In fact, my driver and I had to get off at an alley close by and make the rest of the journey (about a two minute walk) on foot, as motorised vehicles were not allowed on the beach.

Azure waters, palm-tree fringed white sandy beaches, and ever-so-friendly locals complete the picture postcard that is Boracay. Ranked among the most beautiful islands in the world, this gem in the Philippine archipelago is truly a slice of paradise.
