BORACAY, AKLAN: The 17th Nestea Beach Party unfolded over the long Labor Day weekend in this paradise island, in four days of “play, party and chill.”
Dubbed “LaBoracay,” vacationers not saw only the return of the highly anticipated annual beach volley competition but endless festivities from day to night.
“This Labor Day weekend, we took the Boracay experience to a whole new level with the 17th Nestea Beach party,” enthused Jedessa Leyte, marketing promotions and events manager for the brand. By bringing a new twist on the season’s most anticipated event, we are proud to say that Nestea has truly been able to fulfil our promise to refresh summer for the LaBoracay crowd.”
The Nestea Tides Plunge Party served as the kick-off event at the Tides Roofdeck Pool & Solstice Sun Lounge. Partygoers officially welcomed summer as they danced to music from DJ Ron Poe, DJ Nina Saputil, DJ Macoy of RX and DJ Jessica Milner.
On May 2, the biggest boat party on the island took place with the Nestea Beach Yacht Party. Guests were treated to sightseeing at Crystal Cove with music from The Zombettes and DJ Callum David.
Two back-to-back parties followed next, held in partnership with Republiq, at Epic Bar, Station 2. Grammy award winning DJ Cedric Gervais wowed the crowd with his beats on May 3, while on May 4 Steve Aoki kept the adrenalin high with his signature act.
Meanwhile, day time activities kept vacationers busy with beachside massages, and sailing activities. They were also given the opportunity to take part in Nestea’s environmental advocacy comprised of a shore clean-up and coral reef restoration project in partnership with Boracay Foundation Inc.
Finally, the weekend’s highlight saw the triumph of De La Salle University against Adamson University in the women’s beach volleyball division, while the University of Southern Philippines reigned supreme against University of Mindanao Tagum for the men’s.
