Mesmerizing Beauty of Lakawon Island

dROneY (Drone ne Roy)

With over 7,000 islands in the Philippines, it's probably not surprising that some of them are quite small - small enough to be a private resort.  Here is one of them.  It's called Lakawon Island, which is situated off the western coast of the island of Negros in the central Philippines.  It's only 32 acres, but as you'll see from this drone video by dROneY that's plenty of island when it's all one resort.  The white sand beaches here compare favorably to the best that legendary spots like Boracay have to offer.
