Boracay or Cebu

Looking for a short relaxing trip in April from Manila to Boracay or Cebu. Im not sure which is better and more attractive for a relaxing, small exploring and beach trip

Thanks for help

If early April, you will head Holy Week crowds and prices on Boracay. I do suggest Boracay though. Thanks

Will be after the holy week. I think from Tuesday.

Of the three suggested I would also choose Boracay.

My preference which is not on your list is to go to a less busier island if you want relaxation. I loved Siquijor.

Boracay will be packed during holy week. Better make your reservations now.

April is not re relaxing in Boracay. If you do decide to come, stay away from station 2 area as it is manic. Angol, south of station 3 is more relaxing. But really, you could fly into Cebu City, take the bus north and visit one of two nice islands there - Malapascua or Bantayan. Both are nice. Arguments abound as to which is the best.
