Two Beaches – One Day

Bolabog Beach and White Beach are opposite of each other. At the narrowest point these beaches are not even 500 meters apart. Bolabog facing toward east, White Beach facing toward west. However, it seems, as if both beaches were located on two different islands.

Impressions from today, April 26, 2017

Bolagob Beach

It’s very hot today (35 °C). Even if a gentle breeze today offers a nice relief at Bolabog Beach, an umbrella is not a bad idea!

The light breeze from east is still enough to keep a kite in the air.

Aissatou Beach Resort (Habagat Kiteboarding) has the best location at Bolabog. They even have a nice garden inside where you can relax.

White Beach (today)

Because the White Beach lies lee side, there is hardly to feel any wind today. The south part of the beach is quiet free from algeas now. A lot of algeas are still in the middle part just at the height of the Regency Resort. But here at the south it is almost a perfect beach day, and look at these colors!

BIG WINDS IN ADVANCED SEASON

Unexpected strong winds blew yesterday (~ 25 knots) and today (~ 25 – 19 knots). Yesterday “sunny side down” today “sunny side up!” It’s still cool for this time of the year. Air 26°, water not over 22°C. With 9m² I was occasionally overpowered. My friend was using 5m² having much fun. Average 10 kites in the water. Tide at 11 am at a comfortable 1.1m rising to 1.5 til 3 pm. Incredible white, flat wave bases inside the reef.

Beach very dirty. This is the better looking part.

Kite Schools Boracay

The main season for kiteboarding in Boracay starts with the North-East Monsoon. The wind then is called Amihan. The location of the schools are at Bolabog Beach. Bolabog Beach is just opposite of White Beach. It is the second largest beach in Boracay but maybe only one third of the size of White Beach.

Thirteen kite-schools, sometimes closely spaced, operate at that beach. There are also three spots for windsurfing.
