The Ultimate Guide to Boracay Island

By Paul

On BoracayCompass I give you in-depth insider tips and information about the island. Such as what the best things to do are, where to stay, the different beaches to visit, and much more…

My end goal is to help you have the best possible experience in Boracay, by showing you all the different things that the island has to offer.

So without further talk, have a look over my shoulder as I show you Boracay…

Things To Do

Boracay is small in size but diverse in things to do, as you can see in my article on Boracay’s top 23 activities. Apart from organized things to do, there are also 12 beautiful beaches to visit, an abundance of yummy restaurants to choose from, and of course Boracay’s famous nightlife.

Where To Stay

The main accommodation strip runs along the 4 kilometer long White Beach. White Beach has many hotels, restaurants, and nightlife venues alongside it – and it’s divided into three areas, named Station 1, Station 2, and Station 3.

The station that you’ll choose to stay in will have a big impact on your experience in Boracay, so to help you choose the station that best fits your travel style, I’ve written an 4-article guide with a comparison of Boracay’s stations, and the 12 best hotels within each.

How To Get There

There are multiple ways to get to Boracay, and they aren’t always self-explanatory. Thus there’s potential for confusion and plans going haywire. To help you get to the island in the smoothest way possible I’ve written a 3-article guide on how to get to Boracay.

In it you’ll learn how to get from Boracay Airport to your hotel, how to navigate the dreaded Manila Airport, and how to find cheap flights to Boracay via Manila and other Asian airports.

Boracay is a small tropical island where people from all over the world come to enjoy beach life, water sports and a vibrant nightlife. It’s located in the mid-west of the Philippines – a one hour flight away from the country’s capital, Manila.

Its attraction isn’t limited to just a few things. It’s the combination of many things that makes the island unique. In the words of travel blogger Sabrina Iovino from JustOneWayTicket.com:

“ Boracay is the kind of island you will never want to leave. I’ve traveled to more than 50 countries and there are not many places where I’ve returned 5 times. Boracay is one of them ”
