    Ang "Provo" ang pinakasikat na isla sa Turks and Caicos Islands. Mukhang pang-mayaman lang. Me villas pa. Ganda. Drool.

  • huh..
    Amanpulo is definitely more beautiful than boracay. but i don't think the list includes island resorts. google britania islands in surigao, it's amazing way better than some of the islands in the list. and the best thing is, you can visit the islands for free..

    we should preserve Boracay and maintain the pristine beaches or whatever that is left of it, because they have been over developed and it loses the natural beauty and charms due to rapid commercialism.

    I agree with you Genuine! Eventually they will put up a SM Boracay!

    Clearly, whoever compiled this list hasn't seen Amanpulo. Boracay will go the way of Baguio, Tagaytay, if greedy developers continue to have it their way. Over-commercialized, overpopulated.
