  The name Boracay has its origins in 
    the untamed east beach facing 
Sibuyan Sea, known as the other 
side which is favored by windsurfers. According to popular belief, an 
  Ati couple (the dark skinned, curly-haired, forest-dwelling 
aboriginal tribe) discovered a 
little knoll along the other side, 
surrounded by rich marine life. 
As they trapped fish, the tide began 
to rise. Akay, the woman, continued heading for deeper waters, Her concerned husband shouted, 
Bura Kay -- There are bubbles 
(bura), Akay. The landmark knoll 
remains as do Akays nomadic descendants.

They say that a secret remains 
a secret.. Especially if it were 
really a good one...
