Have you ever stopped to think about the incredible power and beauty of the ocean? From the mysterious depths of the abyss to the glistening blue waters of tropical reefs, the ocean is a truly awe-inspiring place. As we celebrate World Oceans Day on June 8th, it’s worth taking a closer look at one of the most stunning and beloved tourist destinations in the Philippines: Boracay.

Tucked away in the heart of the country lies the breathtaking island of Boracay, with its pristine beaches, crystal-clear waters, and vibrant marine life. Regrettably, over the years, the island has faced a growing threat from pollution and unsustainable tourism practices. The ecological condition of Boracay considerably deteriorated as a result of the booming tourism industry. These issues require immediate attention from the government, local communities, and tourists.

One of the primary ways that can address these issues is by practicing proper waste disposal. Boracay Island generates a significant amount of waste, and improper disposal of waste can harm the environment and the island’s tourism industry. As tourists, we can help by segregating our waste and disposing of it in designated bins. Aside from this, there is also a need to promote sustainable tourism practices. Tourists may opt for environmentally friendly activities such as
beach clean-ups, responsible snorkeling and diving, and nature walks.

When it comes to choosing hotels and resorts, it’s important to consider those that have implemented sustainable practices, such as Discovery Shores Boracay. This luxurious resort not only offers guests an unforgettable experience but also takes their commitment to sustainability seriously. From serving sustainable dishes to participating in regular beach clean-ups and practicing waste segregation, Discovery Shores Boracay has made it their mission to keep the island clean and green. By choosing to stay at eco-friendly resorts like this one, we can support the preservation of Boracay’s natural beauty and promote responsible tourism practices.

World Oceans Day serves as a powerful reminder of our responsibility to safeguard and preserve the world’s oceans for generations to come. It is also a call to action to work together to keep the oceans pristine, not just for the sake of the environment but also for the livelihoods and well-being of the people who depend on them. With determination, commitment, and a renewed focus on sustainability, we can create a brighter future for our oceans and all the life they support.

  • BEST HOTEL IN BORACAY… NO, BEST HOTEL IN THE PHILIPPINES! Discovery Shores Boracay is Filipino hospitality at its best. Having been to different hotels in the world, I have never found a hotel where you feel the same level of hospitality, service and care from every staff member you meet. It’s beyond feeling at home.”

  • THE BEST RESORT ON THE ISLAND. We have been to many resorts on Boracay, but this is the best by far. The staff are very accommodating, very nice. Kids have a kids room and an activity every 4pm. There are free snacks and snow cones poolside the whole day. The rooms are comfy and cold. The food is yummy. Definitely worth the price!”
