Location :Boulevard, Lazi, Siquijor Island, Philippines
The Boulevard Lazi's community boardwalk is called the Boulevard - a 50m stretch of seaside promenade with cobblestones allowing for vendors to sell drinks, beer and barbeque. The area also has tables and chairs. The air is super fresh and the sea wall is wide enough to lounge or sit down on.
The Boulevard comes alive when the sun sets
Yoga on the Boulevard I would always be here in the evening to recharge and wind down. Since I moved here to Lazi, I would also be here in the morning to do my yoga, pranayama and just relish the beauty of the place I'm in. It's soothing just to be seated by the water. This is where I also meditate or look far into the distant boat lights to do my trataka.
Ending Thoughts The Boulevard is my refuge. I am indeed fortunate to be living in such a wonderful place as Lazi with all its charm, helpful people, laid-back lifestyle, and its Boulevard.

More on Lazi:
Resorts - Lazi has some beach resorts on its west coast but the popular area for tourist resorts are in San Juan
Transport - Lazi is the junction where the jeeps begin their clockwise route (Lazi-San Juan-Siquijor Port) or the counter clockwise route (Lazi-Maria-Larena Port). Even though Lazi has a port, it's not used for passengers. Because the jeeps are rare with about 2 to 3 trips/day, it's practical to just have a motorcycle here in Siquijor. With its affordability (a brand new Rusi motorbike is as low as P45k), people just buy motorcycles...especially those who live up in the mountains.
The Boulevard - Lazi's main draw is its seaside cobblestone promenade. When the sun sets, people gather here for eats, drinks, open-air, harbor view and the sunset
