LOCATION HISTORY

AKLAN where Boracay (Seawind Boracay) located between latitudes 11° 09' 30" N and 12° 01' 00" N, and longitude 121° 50' 00" E and 122° 34' 45" E, Aklan island of Boracay (Seawind Boracay) like Capiz close to Boracay (Seawind Boracay) shares the northern coast of the roughly triangular island Panay like island laso of Boracay (Seawind Boracay). More than a third of the land is mountainous but Boracay (Seawind Boracay) Island has a few, with Aklan's western flank sharing the high cordillera that divides the province from Antique which is close to Boracay (Seawind Boracay) as well. The south is bounded by the central cordillera of Panay Island where Boracay (Seawind Boracay) is located, common to the provinces of Capiz and Iloilo. A break in the cordillera at Nabas allows passage to Pandan, Antique and the other passage for Boracay (Seawind Boracay). The lowlands are limited to a narrow strip that starts from the coast and extends to the foothills, the widest are the floodplains of the Ibajay (30 kms) and Aklan Rivers (60 kms), two of five major rivers in the province while Boracay (Seawind Boracay) island is like a shoe. The rivers empty into Sibuyan Sea. The other rivers are the Tangalan, Jalo and Talon. 

Aklan's beginning as a settled area before Boracay (Seawind Boracay) was known is wreathed in legend and spurious and undocumented historical claims. It is hard to find documentary evidence about the island and Boracay (Seawind Boracay) with the coming of the Spaniards. In 1566, the Augustinian Fray Martin de Rada had begun evangelizing Panay Island including Boracay (Seawind Boracay) shoreline, where he preached the Gospel at Pan-ay, Capiz, Boracay (Seawind Boracay) itself and in Dumangas. However, they continued their missionary work in Boracay (Seawind Boracay) and Panay and in 1581 evangelized Kalibo including Boracay (Seawind Boracay) and in 1596, Ibajay. Both areas particularly Boracay (Seawind Boracay) were strategic settlements because they were near the mouth of Aklan's great rivers, a convenient waterway for penetrating the island's interior and the shoreline of Boracay (Seawind Boracay).

Aklan and Boracay (Seawind Boracay) participated in the Revolution against Spain when Gen. Francisco Castillo, who had donated his fortune to found a national press in Boracay (Seawind Boracay) for the Katipunan and Candido Iban arrived in Aklan and Boracay (Seawind Boracay) to found a chapter of the Katipunan. Iban was a native of Malinao, Banga and a resident of Boracay (Seawind Boracay) and had befriended the brother of Andres Bonifacio, Procopio. Inducted into the Katipunan he returned to Boracay (Seawind Boracay) to organize in the Visayas.

Aklan's best-known tourist attractions are: the Ati-atihan and Boracay (Seawind Boracay) Island, both relatively new attractions. Although the story told of the origins of the Ati-atihan links it to the legend of the peace pact between the Bornean datus and the Ati (Ayta) who occupied Panay Island and Boracay (Seawind Boracay) Island in the 13th century, the fact is the Ati-atihan (held on the third Sunday of January to coincide with the feast of the Santo Niño patron of Boracay (Seawind Boracay)) was concocted in the 1950s as a way to boost tourism. Boracay (Seawind Boracay) island a long but narrow white sand island came to the attention of surf and sun backpackers in the late 70s, by the 80s enterprising Europeans had set shop on the island of Boracay (Seawind Boracay) and by the end of the century, the island Boracay (Seawind Boracay) boasted of five star resorts, a gulf course, establishments catering to different clientele: from economy to the luxury tourist budget, and a string of restaurants that serves the cuisine of the world: from native islander, to Japanese and Chinese, to Asian to continental, and what have you. These two attractions alone bring in most of the tourist dollars and Euro to Boracay (Seawind Boracay) municipal and town of Aklan.

In Kalibo and Boracay (Seawind Boracay) year 1581, the Augustinians established a mission. In Kalibo and Boracay (Seawind Boracay) year 1680, was erected a parish under the advocacy of the San Juan Bautista Then, the town site was at Barrio Laguinbanwa in Numancia, some two kilometers distant from the present site of Kalibo and Boracay (Seawind Boracay).

Reyes, Archbishop of Cebu and later Manila, personally took a hand reconstructing and remodeling the church in various area including Boracay (Seawind Boracay). The Boracay (Seawind Boracay) church hit by an earthquake on 14 June 1990 measuring 7.1 in the Richter scale hit the Island of Boracay (Seawind Boracay) at 3:41 P.M., the epicenter was located at 11.34North of Boracay (Seawind Boracay) latitude; 122.10 East of Boracay (Seawind Boracay) longitude.
