      What I first of all like that there is a lot of beach culture around them. I am not so much in to empty beaches but prefer beaches where is a cultural scene. The beaches I mention have that except for Cuyo Island which is more of an empty pretty beach. · (1 likelikes)

    Definitely Maldives. I wish I could go often. Conrad Maldives Rangali Island with the coral atoll breaking up all the waves, was like having your own 200 acre salt water swimming pool. Great beaches, fantastic weather, and great food. A true "break from it all."

    For me it is Majorca! Mallorca has many things to offer.... a beautiful island, clear blue water, lots of fun, both family friendly and couple friendly place, sometimes young, sometimes wild, sometimes calm...I like to have a summer house in Mallorca.

    In a fortuitous change of events (the resort where I was staying lost their water supply, and when they started taking buckets of water out of the pool for the toilets, I knew it was time to go), I ended up at the most amazing resort in the Dominican Republic called Eden Roc at Cap Cana in Punta Cana. Everything about this resort is so perfect (gorgeously designed by a well-known Italian designer, villa with private pool and golf carts to spectacular private beach, fabulous restaurant, the best service I've ever had anywhere in the world...well, you get the picture) that there will never, ever, be another beach resort that lives up to its wonderfulness.

    I have been well and truly spoiled.

    I just came back from a friend's wedding on Boracay Island and I had an absolute blast. The island offers pretty much anything you'd want to do, and everything costs about half of what you would expect. Boracay Islandimage from outravel.blogspot.com

    Getting there:

    Fly from Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila to Caticlan, which takes about 45 minutes. From Caticlan airport, you will take a tricycle, then a short (~20 min) boat ride to Boracay island.

    The stations:

    The island is split into 3 sections, Stations 1, 2, and 3. Each station has a different flavor, and one of them should suit your taste. The station numbers refer to old boat stations that are no longer being used.

    Boracay Island

    Station1:

    Station 1 is the high end part of the island. The beaches here are the whitest, the sand is the finest, and the resorts here are the most expensive.

    Boracay Island

    The hotels here range from $60/night to well over $400/night. This is the area of the island you stay at if you want to be pampered. Below is a picture of Discovery Shores Boracay, where the wedding was held.

    General Trippy Media

    I personally stayed at Boracay Coco Huts at the edge of Station 1. My room was about $60/night and I was right above Army Navy, which is a great burgers/burrito place.

    Station 2:

    This is the party section of the island. The beaches are still very nice but likely to be very crowded. There are also lots of vendors here peddling massages, water activities, and selfie sticks. Here you'll find the widest variety of restaurants, bars, and clubs. D'mall de Boracay is also in Station 2, and is where you'd likely go to do your beach front shopping.

    D'mall de BoracayYou'll most likely spend your late evenings in Station 2. A couple of popular clubs are Summer Place and Juice. Both have DJ's spinning a combination of electronic and pop music. Hip hop is not as popular, but they will play it if requested.

    Summer Place

    Station 3:

    This is the more up and coming section of the island. This used to be where the small huts and bamboo hostels were concentrated. But in recent years many hotels have been built here and it's become a lot nicer but also more expensive. The beaches here aren't as nice, but they are also not crowded and you can have a relaxing time without spending a lot of money. You can probably get a nice room here for around $20.

    Last week I was at Hey Jude Resort Hotel where I got an hour long massage for $8.

    Conclusion:

    Boracay is probably my favorite island getaway because it offers pretty much anything I want in one place. I can relax and be treated like a king in Station 1. I can drink and party in Station 2. And I can stay in a quiet hotel in Station 3. And all of this is about an hour away from Manila.

    If you have any questions about Boracay, feel free to reach out to me!

    Cozumel Have been there twice and loved it. Sweet little downtown with lots of restaurants; tons of resort hotels if that is what you like, small boutique hotels and B&Bs, The thing about Cozumel though is the snorkeling and diving. The second largest reef in the world is there and there are abundant dive shops.

    We stayed for a week at Alicia's Bed and Breakfast in the middle of town and used cabs to get around. We rented a car the last 3 days and drove to the east beaches which was like having your own private place. Alicia's is a wonderful B & B complete with dogs to pet. Well run, impeccably clean with fabulous breakfasts.

    The best thing about Cozumel is being able to drive up to a beach club and jump in the water and snorkel as long as you want. We found a couple of places where you can just pull off the side of the road and step right in to the water.

    Without a doubt, the Maldives-however that can be a bit difficult to get to and rather expensive. I'm massively partial to Sanibel. The beaches are lined with tons of shells, the island itself is still low-key, buildings can't be higher than the tree line (no high rises!), no more new buildings can be built (you must buy an existing and tear down if you want your own), and the whole island has bike paths. It's just a throw back to me!
