Where to stay in Boracay Island

Exploring Boracay

Boracay is an island in the central region of the Philippines with long stretches of fine, white sand beaches and clear, turquoise waters. Originally home of the native Ati people, Boracay first saw tourists in the 1970s, about the same time as the release of the British-American movie Too Late the Hero, the bulk of which was shot here. The rest of the decade up until the ‘80s saw independent travellers and backpackers arrive. Rapid development on the island eventually took place and by the ‘90s, Boracay was posed as the top beach destination in a country known for its beaches. It remains so today.

Sightseeing in Boracay

- White Beach


Practically the entire coastline of the island is lined with beaches. The most popular of the beaches is White Beach, a long stretch on the western coast of Boracay which is considered the center of everything on the island. The beach is divided into three areas, or stations. The northernmost area, Station 1, has the nicest, and thus priciest, beachfront accommodation, such as those in Fridays Boracay Resort. Station 2 is the busiest area and considered the island’s shopping, dining, and partying hub. Station 3, the least busy area, is perfect for those looking for cheap hotels.


- Puka Beach


There are a number of other smaller beaches and coves around the island. Those looking to escape the chaos of White Beach can head to Puka Beach in the north. The sand is a bit rougher here but this is a much quieter area with fewer establishments.


Transportation in Boracay

With the rise of local budget carriers in the country and Boracay’s location only an hour’s flight from Manila, it is easy to understand why this beautiful tropical destination has become popular. Not one but two airports serve as the island’s main gateway. The larger Kalibo International Airport receives flights from many national hubs as well as from China, Taiwan, and South Korea. The smaller and nearer Godofredo P. Ramos Airport receives flights from Manila and Cebu. Both airports are located on Panay Island, a larger island only two kilometres south of Boracay. Land and ferry connections to Boracay are available from each of these gateways.
