What is there to see?
On Boracay you will discover beautiful white coral beaches!
You'll also discover every type of watersport imaginable (jet ski, kite surfing, surfing, sailing, banana boats, snorkeling, diving, etc)!
Land activities too! These quad bikes were great fun - there are also horses if you prefer! You can go to Mt Luho and take in the view and see the monkeys and butterfly farm.
You'll find a mall complex (D'mall D'Boracay) full of shops, restaurants and bars to suit all budgets. The night life in Boracay is excellent and you will certainly get to party!
Where do I stay?
Book in advance or just turn up! In peak season you better make a booking though, as Boracay is very popular. Hotels range from cheap to expensive and there are loads to choose from!
How do I get there?
Most people fly to Caticlan or Kalibo Airport. Caticlan is the closest - just grab a short ride to the pier and pay about 70 peso total for the boat ride across to Boracay. On Boracay grab a tricycle to the resort. From Kaliboa Airport grab the readily available transport to the pier and get the boat to Boracay as before. Transport takes about 2 hours from Kalibo to Caticlan, but it is a good way to see the island. The fare is relatively inexpensive, under 500 peso if I remember correctly.
How long shall I stay?
Stay for a couple of days or more. If chilling out on the beach is your thing, a bit of sports and maybe a few beers then why not make it a week! If you want to see new sights and go on tours then I'd move on after a couple of days.
Tips and Comments
Boracay is primarily a relaxing beach, watersport and party resort. It is popular with foreigners, local celebrities and young Filipino's alike. If you want to see more scenery and what life is all about in the Philippines then move on to a resort off the beaten track!
