Boracay - the Perfect Philippines Beach Destination...

On one small island Boracay provides everything a traveller could want from a beach holiday. The sand is soft and white, the sea crystal clear, and blue skies turn into spectacular sunsets in the evening.
Whether you’re looking to relax or party, Boracay has it all. There’s a variety of sports and activities available too.

Hotels and Resorts 

Boracay Island has all kinds of accommodation, suitable for all budgets.

The simplest include rustic style "nipa style huts”, which are single storey dwellings made from bamboo and palm leaves. Alongside these are the most modern luxury hotels, equipped with spas, gymnasiums, and even conference facilities.

Mid-range accommodation includes boutique hotels and resorts. Most hotels and resorts are located along the length of the famous White Beach


There are over 200 caf├ęs and restaurants on Boracay offering all kinds of dishes from around the world, and to suit all budgets. Chicken and pork are the most popular meats, as in most of the Philippines, but the fresh seafood is what steals the show. Irresistably delicious and plentiful.

There are also numerous bars and discos, many open into the early hours.

Shops and Markets

On Boracay the largest market is the Talipapa, situated between White Beach and the Main Road that runs through the centre of the island. 

There is also a mall, called D’Mall, which has around 100 stores selling all kinds of goods and souvenirs, including beachwear, art and crafts, and antiques, many at attractively low cost.


From November to February the weather is cooler and mostly dry. March to June is warm and also dry. Rain is most likely between July and October, although it remains warm. Over the year, temperatures on Boracay range between 24° and 32° centigrade.
