Welcome to Boracay!
The very definition of island paradise which has now reclaimed its former pristine-ness! This beauty was almost lost to pollution and over-tourism, but after a hard think, a shut down was deemed necessary if the clean up initiative was going to be successful. Boracay reopened in October 2018 and has enjoyed its new lease on life.
Boracay Island Areas
Boracay is a very small island, and the areas most visitors will become familiar with is the 3 ‘boat stations’ of White Beach. Unless you are looking for some seclusion, much of your time will be spent in the bars, cafes, shops and restaurants around White Beach. Station 3 is a bit more tranquil, station 2 is where you’ll find much of the beach activities and tour departures, and station 1 has many upscale resorts and restaurants. D’mall with lots of shops and restaurants is located near station 2, which is another reason why this would be the best area for families on Boracay.
On the southern tip of the island, you’ll find Boracay’s two jetty ports which serve ferry services from Caticlan which is just over a mile (1.8km). Your main entry point will likely be Tambisaan beach where, unless you’ve arranged otherwise, you can get a tricycle taxi to take you to your accredited hotel or holiday accommodation. Cagban jetty port may be used in the off season, or during poor weather.
On the other side of White beach is Bulabog beach. It’s a bit windier on the side of the island so kite surfing, wind surfing and other water sports are popular here. Llig-Lligan Beach is also usually covered on the island tour, and Diniwid beach is another easily accessible but secluded beach worth a visit.
