Dainty Boracay makes up for size by bursting at the seams with some of the world's most picturesque beaches, bohemian bars and enticing eateries. Boracay has climbed its way to the top to be crowned as one of the best island destinations in the world – and rightfully so.
Boracay boasts an alluring array of beaches including dreamy White Beach, which has frequently been voted as one of the best beaches in the world, Punta Bunga & Banyugan Beach, Tambisaan Beach and Bulabog Beach. Each one being of unprecedented celestial beauty with a medley of lively areas teeming with activity, and tranquil retreats secluded from the buzz of the rest of the island. Whether it's lounging on the beach or exploring colourful coral reefs beneath the surface that takes your fancy, Boracay has got you covered.
Boracay is not only beautiful above water, but below the waves too! Batangas or Palawan beaches are the best places for snorkelling, and if you're into diving, there are some incredible coral reefs in the deeper parts of the Boracay ocean. Alternatively, try the Marine Walk where you don a diving helmet system and then literally walk under the sea, coming face to face with fascinating colourful tropical fish and live corals, while your face remains completely dry!
One of the most endearing aspects of the island is the shopping. Navigate your way through a myriad of quaint market stalls and browse through the eclectic concessions in D'Mall – a fantastic shopping centre with an array of retailers to cater to all tastes and budgets.
As rich in taste as it is in beauty, the petite island champions a flavoursome blend of worldly cuisines, including Greek, Indian, Caribbean, Thai and much more. Dotted throughout the island are different styles of restaurants for all occasions: decadent diners for sophisticated evenings and charming cafés for light lunches on the beach.
For those in search of a zesty nightlife, Boracay offers a collection of boutique bars, relaxed beer shacks on the shore and buzzing nightclubs. During the high season, the island is home to the most famous fiesta in the Philippines, the Ati-Atihan festival. With incandescent parades, traditional dress and live music, Boracay is filled with entertainment.
