Bulabog Beach Boracay is in a sheltered bay, about two miles long. Offshore reefs protect the lagoon, and there is usually a steady wind blowing between 12 and 20 knots. The water is warm and calm , averaging about 27’C.

Windsurfing at Bulabog beach is so popular due its location on the island. The weather on Boracay is broken up into two primary seasons. Amihan, the prime tourist season, is the best time for windsurfing. During this season the water is generally very calm and offers a great surface to glide across. What really makes this season perfect for this sport, however, is the fact that the wind during Amihan will almost always blow in from the East and sweep over Bulabog Beach. This means that White Beach is often protected from the wind while Bulabog receives an abundance of the key element in windsurfing. The relatively calm waters and the steady and predictable wind make this beach an ideal location.

Visitors would be quite hard pressed to find a better location for this sport than on this beautiful little island.
