About Boracay

boracay-picAbout Boracay Beyond its white powdery sand and crystal clear waters, the island promises PARADISE. Truly, life in the island is all PLEASURE, FUN, and ADVENTURE!

Boracay Island is in Panay, part of the Municipality of Malay. The island is divided into 3 major Barangays; Manok-Manok, Balabag, and Yapak and has 3 boat stations which have become the general guide of tourists to classify accommodations in the island. Station 3, the first boat station from Caticlan, is the crowded area due to a number of accommodations to choose from and with the convenience of having a wide selection of affordable restaurants and bars to choose from; small grocery and shopping stores, banks, and other interesting things to do. Station 2 is where all the action is. The one-stop destination called D-mall and most of the big resorts/hotels suggest interest. And Station 1, a peaceful and a more private area is where luxurious yet affordable resorts are located. Among the things that invite tourists to stay in Station 1 resorts are the ambiance of exclusivity away from the crowd, the feeling of being at home as most of the establishments here are pioneers in the islands and where the atmosphere of the island is best experienced as the beach is at its widest among the 3 stations.

BY LAND/SEA

RORO – If you are travelling from Luzon via Manila to Boracay Island, at least 3 bus companies ply from Manila to Iloilo City, Roxas City and San Jose City in Panay islands. All of them would be passing Caticlan Malay, Aklan, the gateway to Boracay Island. This route is also known as RORO – Roll on, roll off. It’s a nautical highway developed to connect different Islands from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. This route allows you to hop from one island to another and enjoy the scenery in the comfort of your car or bus.

Boracay Beaches

Aside from its beautiful sceneries as the hues of the sky change from sunrise to sunset,

Boracay Island has several beaches waiting to be explored.

White Beach is the most beautiful beach in the island. Tourists from all over the world enjoy the view as they walk along the beach. Some simply enjoy the sun and the water sports in the day; and sunset viewing, reggae music and cocktail drinks in the night.

Other beaches include Puka Beach in Yapak, measuring 800 meters which used to be abundant in puka shells and was witnessed by the old-time travelers in the island; Din-iwid Beach is a 200-meter long beach, with its access path from the edge of the white beach for your picnic plans or romantic time with your partner as you shelter yourselves in the shadow of the cliffs and big rocks along this quiet beach; Balinghai Beach, is a farther area from the white long beach, perfect for snorkeling; Bunyagan Beach, populated with coconut trees, gives you the cast-away ambiance; Ilig-iligan Beach has its caves and coves to explore and despite its rough and downward slope passage, is still accessible by motorbike, tricycle, bicycle or can be reached by boat as well; Bolabog Beach known as the other side of the island is crowded by windsurfing and kite surfing enthusiasts during the first quarter of the year when the strong winds excite the annual competition; Cagban Beach serves as an official port to the mainland during peak season and becomes a quiet place when the port transfers its activities to Tambisaan in the low season; Manoc-Manoc Beach is the first beach you will see as you approach the island from Caticlan.

Food

One reason that makes the island a “must destination” especially with your family, is the international selection of menu served in different restaurants. Among the choices, Thai, Mexican and Indian restaurants are highly recommended.


Nightlife

Nightlife in the island is never-ending. The reggae music, the drinks, the cozy beach-side bars and the variety of tourists coming to the island create an overwhelming crowd. 

One of the coolest places to spend the night at is Club Paraw, where the rhythm played every night will drag you to the dance floor and, with the beach set-up, you’ll hear only the music, the laughter and waters as it waves to the shore.

And just like most of the night spots in the Island, the native structured bars are “in”. Low tables with bean bags along the beach, dim lighting and loud music invite passers-by to have a drink. And, after emptying a couple of glasses or bottles, the night people transfers to another place either to a not so crowded bar to continue interesting conversations or to just follow a change of mood; or to a more crowded place for partying until closing time.

Banks & Credit Cards

Metrobank, Allied Bank, BPI and RCBC are the banks in the Island and most of these banks provide ATM in convenient locations. Most of the establishments accept all major credit cards.


Discovery, Fun and Relaxation

The usual happening during daytime is trying out the water sports activities. And those who prefer to stay anywhere else except in the water consider land activities to get familiarized with the interesting places in the island.

Water Activities include Diving, Snorkeling, Windsurfing, Kayaking, Glass Bottom Boat, Pedal Boat, Canoeing, Kite boarding, Banana Boat, Fly Fish, Parasailing, and Island tour.

Land Activities include rental of Motorbike, Mountain Bike, and ATV; Mountain Climbing, Horseback Riding and golfing. Also, you may visit Mount Luho, the highest point in Boracay with 100 meters above sea level. And from the whole day adventure, take the time to see “Boracay Sunset,” as it displays its shade, distinctive each day.

Relaxation in the island is inviting. Depending on what your body dictates, Boracay sceneries alone, can put your mind at ease. But for those who need a soothing massage, there are many spa and massage services to choose from.

Friendly Reminders

Things to Bring

As to clothing going to the island, comfy to wear t-shirt, shorts, slippers—ready to wade in the waters during high tide.

As to your basics, such as beach wear, lotions, film, batteries, and the like, the shops in the island make almost everything available to unload your baggage.

You may consider leaving your lap top at home if your computer works may be done in business centers with access to the internet in the island.

For Your Convenience

Arrange your island activities with the Front Desk Staff in the resort you’re staying in, for proper registration to assure your safety. 

Be familiar with the regulated rates in the Island as to transportation, massage, and island activities to avoid overpricing.

Either bring your valuables with you or deposit them for safe-keeping to discourage theft.
