No. 16 Discovery Shores Boracay, Philippines
88 rooms on a tiny island known for powder-white-sand beaches, where kids learn
the Filipino versions of hopscotch and tag and climb up a bamboo pole in a
popular local game known as palosebo. Yes, this is Discovery Shores, new to the
T+L 500 in 2011. Is the Boracay’s White Beach truly the finest spot of sand in
the world? Guests of this island hotel have the chance to find out.
