Boracay Island and its beguiling  beaches never fail to lure thousands of tourists each year.  In this week’s article, guest writer Patricia Evans talks about the advantages of traveling off peak and shares some fabulous fashion tips on how to look your best as you strut the beach.


The end of 2016 is upon us. Where is your last travel destination for the year? The summer months between May and July are regarded as the peak season in Philippine beaches, while the colder period of July to October is considered off-peak season. An experienced traveler takes note of the peak and off peak seasons as this factor affects the availability of flights and accommodations, and the cost of an out-of-town vacation.

Who says that you can’t lounge on the beach on a cool October weekend? There are 101 reasons why Boracay is the ultimate destination all year ‘round. Named as one of the world’s most beautiful islands, Boracay’s charm doesn’t falter even in chilly mornings. Check out 10 fashion tips for your off-peak trip to the famous white sand beaches.

During the off-peak month of October, the weather in Boracay can be a bit chilly in the morning and mildly warm throughout the rest of the day. The temperature is typically between 24 and 29 degree Celsius, but can drop to 20 degrees when it’s raining. Rainshowers are rare in the island in the last three months of the year, but it’s always better to anticipate the impact of climate change. Prepare for the Boracay weather by packing a denim cut-off and pullover combo.

A cool fedora that goes with any beach get-up

There are beach essentials every traveler must have. Regardless of the season in Boracay, you should have a hat in your luggage. This will protect you from the harmful effect of sun exposure, and at the same time, lift your fashion style. You wouldn’t want to risk getting skin cancer for a few hours under the sun. A straw fedora suits any type of outfit, so does a large brim hat.

Today, kimonos are paired with slacks, jeans, and denim cut-offs. Boost your Boracay fashion get-up with a gorgeous vintage kimono over a simple one-piece swimwear. A metallic belt will complete your supermodel look!

Your travel guide to Boracay should include not only recommended itineraries but also ways on how to protect yourself in terms of health and safety. Do you know that a pair of sunglasses has health benefits? According to the National Eye Institute, sunglasses protect the eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays. It helps prevent the development of cataracts, macular degeneration, and astigmatism. Get a good pair of sunglasses that you can use even after your vacation.

Look your best in a floral maxi skirt

Finally! You can temporarily ditch your business suits for a lovely beach skirt. The most important tip in your guide in Boracay is simple: let your hair down! Wear an outfit that will melt your stress away and make you feel like a goddess. Match your boat neck tee with a floral maxi skirt.  No need for accessories. The print on your skirt is more than enough to glam you up. 

Why is it a good idea to fly to Boracay on an off-peak season? The cost of traveling is cheaper, there is less competition for accommodation, and there the crowd is thinner. If you’re a working millennial, it is also easier to file for vacation leaves when the majority of the workforce are not planning out-of-town trips. Let them have summer, and you can have Boracay for the rest of the year!
