Dino Manalo Boracay Photo '80s

Time is frozen in a single frame of film. Every bit of detail is perfectly captured by the camera lens. These photos take us back to those wonderful days when everything seemed so fresh and new, those days we wished would last forever. Relive those special moments in your life, and share your memories with Photo Nostalgia!

That's my brother TJ on the left, I'm the kid on the far right. The rest of the kids are my cousins. The one wearing red is my mom and on the left is my grandpa. The other women in the photo are my aunties.

Boracay in the early 80's. Back then there were only a few nipa house cottages here and there in the island. There was no electricity and we only depended on gas lamps at night time. And during the night you could hear curious insect sounds as well as sounds that my grandparents would attribute to the "aswang". Boracay was known then as a "virgin island" since at that time there were only a handful of people who knew about the island and most of them were from Aklan. I remember the first time I set foot on the island, I just marveled at the sand. It was white as snow! And the water itself was clear as tap water that I could see the fishes right through it! Well..that was the 80's. Now, whenever I hear somebody exclaim how beautiful Boracay is I can only reminisce and say to myself…the Boracay I know is now long gone... buried under commercialization.

Thanks & More Power!

Boracay in the 80's is much like a paradise. I hope we can preserve Boracay at it's best to encourage more tourist to visit us.
