Boracay

At a mere 10 km², pint-sized Boracay is small enough to stroll around in a day... but who would want to, when any one part of the island's idyllic coastline is good enough to pass out on for hours? Despite its size, this little gem in the Visayan Islands is cemented as one of the Philippines' premier beach destinations. With lively nightlife, heaps of amazing food, snorkelling, diving and more all centred around the achingly perfect White Beach, its easy to see why.

 

Top things to do in & around Boracay

  • White Beach
    The name says it all. Whether you choose to walk its entire length or just bum out in the same spot for days, you'll soon see why Boracay has on more than one occasion been crowned the Best Island in the World...
  • Puka Shell Beach
    Head north of White beach, to Yapak village for a quiet, tranquil beach day. Named after the thousands of tiny puka shells you'll find here, Puka Beach is perfect for kayaking, snoozing and sunset beers.
  • Coral Garden
    With a maximum depth of just twelve metres, Boracay's Coral Garden is the perfect diving spot for beginners. On any day, you'll be surrounded by a kaleidoscope of colourful coral and exotic sea life.
  • Malumpati River
    Visit the Northwest Panay Peninsula National Park, set in the middle of the jungle on neighbouring island Pandan and dive straight in to the bright blue waters of Malumpati Cold Springs to cool off. You can also trek, tube, raft or even zip wire around this national park.
  • Fresh seafood at D'Talipapa Market
    Visit the lively and colourful D'Talipapa Market to sample fresh seafood, cooked right in front of you. Make sure to barter!
  • Boracay's Nightlife
    If you came to the Philippines to party from sunset to sunrise, you're in the right place. You'll find chilled out beach bars, all-night outdoor clubs, Full Moon parties to rival Thailand's, and some pretty competitive drinks deals dotted all along Boracay's White Beach.

How to get to Boracay

The quickest way to get to Boracay is to fly from either Manila or Cebu to neighbouring Panay Island. From Panay, the ferry to Boracay's jetty (just south of White Beach) will take under an hour.

When is the best time to visit Boracay?

The island's high season lasts from October to May, and the best diving conditions usually sit between December and April. Try not to travel to Boracay between June and October, when the island is deserted and at risk of being lashed by tropical storms (on the plus side, prices will be super low during this season!).
