About Boracay

Including tips for the best time to visit Boracay

Cocooned in the heart of the Philippines, Boracay is a famous resort town dotted with bars and restaurants. The blue waters, green trees and white sand make Boracay a picture-perfect island.

The bone-shaped island of Boracay is a fine spot if you enjoy the warmth of the sun and the salty breeze of the sea. White Beach, peppered with restaurants, bars and shopping areas, is the most famous beach of this island. From this beach, you'll get to see Willy's Rock, a gigantic volcanic rock with people climbing over it. If you wish to experience kite surfing, then Bulabog Beach is a great choice. Halt at the handicraft stores along this beach for souvenirs like paintings and refrigerator magnets. For a chance to relax away from crowds, head to Puka Shell beach, a comparatively quiet spot. At this place, you can choose a sunbed overlooking the emerald-blue waters, or go for a rejuvenating swim.

While there are no direct routes to Boracay, you can stop at Manila airport, from where you can take a domestic flight to smaller airports near the island. A boat ride from these local airports will take you straight to the island. Another way is via sea. For that, you’ll need to take a bus from Manila airport to the Batangas Port. After a ferry ride to Calapan, you'll need to take another bus to Roxas Port. From this location, you'll get a ferry to Boracay island.

Heaven on earth.

Heaven on earth. A place where you don't want to leave anymore. I very much like the pristine water and the view of the sorrounding that's really soothing to the eyes and relaxing to the mind. Enjoyable and secured island hopping and many water activities. You didn't visit Boracay if you will not try Parasailing, it's amazing. Sea U again Bora


Tropical heaven on earth.

Tropical heaven on earth... highly recommend it to everyone. At least visit Boracay once in their lifetime, you'll love it... love the sunsets and all-day long swim if you like, preferably the sunset swim. The White Beach on the west side of the island is the best. Lots of activities and amenities along the beach. Great vibe and a must-go-to destination when visiting Philippines. You won't regret it. WE LOVED IT and will be coming back again!

I like the Hawker style eating places where you can have a wide selection of food outside of the hotel. I also like the daily festive atmosphere. The activities that can be done, places to go to, etc.

People are humble, nice and helpful especially those in water activities. We enjoyed alot the relaxing and refreshing breeze of Boracay. We first stayed at the Seven Stones Resort last May 2022 but we felt it wasn't enough, so we decided to come back this June and stayed at Piccolo Hotel a bit longer and closer to white beach. My Latino-American fiancé loved and kept ordering in Aloha Grill Restaurant of their baby ribs with sausage taste like Texas Road House, yet affordable and so delicious.

Amazing Place for family and friends.

Amazing Place for family and friends. Company activities are also recommended. Relaxing place? Boracay will be the answer. Great Sand beaches? Boracay. Much more than today, Boracay is more relaxing place. Revamp beaches has something new to offer.

26 June 2022

We were only there for 5 nights, they had to change us out of the room every single day. We had to pack everything and wait until late afternoon for another rooms. Rooms were terrible. LOUD music all hours of the night could not sleep. Also had insect infestations in rooms. Demanded a refund the first night, but we were led around like captives in this place. Could not go to another hotel because of the double cost involved. Wanted to be released and refunded to go to a safer property. They refused us. Extremely - terrible - live music, drunks all over the place at night, breakfast was terrible. This place DOES NOT look like the out dated pictures you see on Booking. Matter of fact, they are EYARS old -- look at the chefs -- no gloves no masks, fron desk - no masks and the plastic panels are not installed. Yeah, they are at least 4 years old or more. Property is in terrible disrepair. The entrance to the hotel makes you feel like you've been kidnapped! Very scary dirt road in the middle of town leading past huts and garbage. I wanted out as soon as we checked in. But that night, that loud music (NOISE) was the last straw along with all of the bugs in the rooms. I WANT TO ADD PHOTOS BUT THIS WEBSITE DOEN'T LET ME
