Boracay is in the province of Aklan, located in Panay. This is the center of the Philippines. These central islands are the Visayas, region 6.
Boracay Island



The Island of Boracay is shaped like a dog bone. It is about 7 km long, and 1 km wide at its narrowest. White Beach and Bulabog beach are the primary and secondary tourism beaches, both located opposite of each other.


Panay Island

Boracay is located 2km from Caticlan, the mainland gateway for sea and air access to Boracay. There are ports both in the south of Boracay, Cagban Port and Tambisaan port (only used in Habagat season) as well as in Caticlan (Jetty Port) to ferry passengers across the Tabon Strait. Boracay is separated into three districts; Yapak in the North, ManocManoc in the South and Balabag in the center. It is common to use the boat stations of White Beach for reference to a location. Boat Station 1 in the north, Boat Station 2 in the center, and Boat Station 3 in the south. Boracay has 12 beaches. White Beach is the most famous with most of Boracays establishments lined along the 4km long beach and footpath. Bulabog Beach, directly opposite, is the secondary water sports beach which is protected by a great reef. There is also the beautiful and undeveloped Puka Shell Beach in the north. The remaining other beaches are either deserted, remote, or have private resorts and villas. You can access nearly all beaches by a series of paved or gravel roads, or by sea.


Amihan - High Season (November to March) 25-32C (77-90F) Cool at night and warm day time, moderate rain, northeasterly to easterly winds Summer (April / May / June) 28-38C (82-100F) Hot and mostly dry, sometimes easterly to southeasterly trade winds. Habagat - Low Season (May/June to September/October) 25-32C (77-90F) Winds from the southwest, moderate to heavy rainfall, humid

Tourist Season

The Low Season is when the winds blow westward into White Beach. There is more rain than usual, but there are also fewer tourists, better prices on accommodations, and other lower prices on goods and services. The low season begins in May, and ends in October. During High Season, the winds come from the east side of the island, and White Beach is protected. The wind blows out to sea, leaving the beach pristinely clean and generally calm. It is winter in the northern hemisphere, and tourists come in numbers seeking sun, heat, beach and party. High Season starts in October and ends in May. The Peak Season is when tourism is at its height. This includes Christmas, New Year, Chinese New Year, and Holy Week (Easter Week). Some resorts have a +10% to +25% premium on their rooms, and the island gets fully booked. Make sure you book as far in advance as possible.

Getting Here
By Air:
Caticlan is a small airport 20 minutes from Boracay. There are domestic flights from Manila, Cebu and Clark. A motorized trike will take you to the Jetty Port, less than five minutes away. This is definitely the preferred airport for ease and convenience. Due to the small size of the runway, smaller turboprop airplanes are used. Kalibo Airport is a larger airport 90 minutes from Boracay. There are some international flights and it can accommodate larger jet airplanes. An air-conditioned van service can take you from Kalibo Airport to Caticlan Jetty Port for 200 PhP or you can take an open air Jeepney for 65 Php.

Getting In

1. Caticlan Airport to Caticlan Port After getting out of the small airport, there will be a lineup of Motor Tricycles. The ride costs 50 PhP per trike for the five-minute trip to the port. You may also want to drop by BIGGAME in front of Caticlan Airport Departure area and enjoy over 120 casino games. Get lucky on your first drop at Boracay and win big! 2. Caticlan Port to Boracay Port The Jetty Port has Bangka pump boats that ferry between the Caticlan mainland and Boracay Island from Sunrise to Sunset. There are sometimes ferries after dark, but not reliably so. The Bangka trip is 25 PhP, however non-residents also pay a 75 PhP environmental fee, and a 50 PhP Terminal fee. You need to get these tickets outside the Jetty Port before you enter. The trip from the mainland to the island is about 15 minutes. If you have heavy luggage, there are porters to assist you at 20 PhP per item tip. Depending on the season, you will arrive at one of two Boracay Ports Cagban Port in the High Season and Tambisaan Port in the Low Season. 3. Boracay Port to White Beach The distance from either port to White Beach is about 10 minutes. There will be a long line of motortrikes to take you from the port to White Beach. This trip is 100 PhP per motortrike. 4. White Beach The Motortrikes cannot go right down to the beach and will leave you on the Main Road next to a path that leads down to White Beach. The larger paths have pedal trikes that can take you down to your resort, or you can walk the five minutes. The Motortrike drivers should know the right place to drop you off.


Getting Around
Most visitors to Boracay stay on or near White Beach so it is convenient to travel by foot. Its about an hour walk from one end of the beach to the other. Motor vehicles are not allowed on the footpath and beach. There are motorbikes with sidecars on the main road running parallel to White Beach. The fare between boat stations is 10 PhP. You can also hire a trike driver to take you around the island for 150PhP/Hour. This is a good way to visit other beaches such as Puka shell Beach, or the highest point on Boracay, Mt. luho View Point. You can also rent bicycles from Patio Pacific and vendors on White Beach for around 200 PhP per hour. Wear a helmet and go slow. Motorcycles can be rented from some vendors near Regency and in front of Budget Mart for around 600 PhP for two hours. You can also hop around to the islands remote beaches (Island Hopping) by Paraw, native canoe type sailboat. They are all over White Beach and should be around 500 PhP per hour with crew. Popular trips are to Puka Shell Beach, up and down White Beach, sunset sails, and around the Island (weather permitting). There are also ATVs and off road buggies available for rent on the main road and past station one.



The currency is the Philippine Peso (PhP). Bill denominations are: 20, 50, 100, 500 and 1,000 pesos. If possible, bring your cash in 500 PhP denominations as you will find that getting change for 1000 peso bill can be difficult at times. ATMs dispense in 500 PhP bills. There are ATMs on White Beach, at DMall, and on the main road that will accept foreign debit/ bank cards. During high and peak season the ATMs tend to run out of cash and are not refilled till the next business day, so take out money early in the day and before the weekend. Foreign Currency is best exchanged at the banks or money changing stores. Only the larger restaurants and hotels accept credit cards including MasterCard, Visa and American Express. Personal checks are generally not accepted. Travelers checks get a lower exchange rate and should be changed at Allied Bank or the Boracay Tourist center. The Tourist Center will also give cash advances on credit cards (7%+ fee), and safe deposit boxes are available for rent.

Boracay Island is serviced by two mobile providers, SMART and GLOBE. They have good reception through most of the island. Visitors can purchase a SIM card with phone number for 65 PhP and then purchase loads (user minutes) in amounts as low as 10 pesos. Text messages are definitely the main form of local communication at a cost of 1 peso per text. (The Philippines is the text message capital of the world). Talk time is more expensive between 6 to 8 pesos per minute. International text messages are quite affordable (most countries 20 PhP).

Landline calls are cheaper, and best for international calls. There are several International Phone booths along the White Beach footpath and in DMall. Some resorts also have international phone service, but generally at higher rates. Philippine country code is +63. Boracays area code is (036). My Boracay Guides phone number calling from overseas would be +63 36 288-9999. Boracay has several internet cafes along White Beach, at the Tourist Information Center, and in DMall. Half hour is 25-35 PhP, one hour is 50-70 PhP. Connections are not very fast, but sufficient to email home. There is a post office in the Tourist Information Center, as well as Balabag Plaza behind Station One. There is one LBC branch in station 3 on the main road for all your shipping needs. There is a local newspaper that cover many of the events and happenings on the island called the Boracay Sun. You can find this at many of the popular establishments on the island. There are three major FM Radio Stations, Yes FM 91.1, Easy Rock 93.5 and Radio Boracay 106.1.


Visa Extensions
The Bureau of Immigration (BOI) can extend visitor visas as well as process other changes required in visa status. For visa extensions you will be required to make photocopies of your passport and fill out a visa application form. The cost varies depending on your visa and desired length of stay. You can expect to pay 3,030.00 PhP for 38-day extension. Please extend 1-2 weeks before visa expires to avoid penalty. There is a dress code so dont wear board shorts or tank tops. Located on the main road inside Nirvana Resort, best to go on Mondays and Tuesdays, 8-12 and 1-5. For more information call 2885267 (Boracay) 5007601 (Kalibo).

White Beach, Boat Station 1
White Beach, Boat Station 1 is the North section of White Beach that is home to some of the top luxury resorts on Boracay. Almost all the resorts are directly on the beach, and offer most in-house services that you would expect from high end resorts.
