Boracay Holidays

Powdery white beaches

For such a small island, Boracay packs a big punch. Once you step foot on the powder-soft white sand beaches you'll be in no doubt why this is one of the Philippines' most popular tourist destinations. Days here are all about relaxing on the beach, trying your hand at the plentiful watersports on offer or diving at one of the nearby sites; while by night the island comes alive with a vast array of beach bars, cafés and restaurants. We love the four kilometre long  "White Beach" which is split into 3 'stations', each with its own vibe; Station 3 has a relaxed backpacker feel; Station 2 is the busiest stretch where the bulk of the nightlife is located; and Station 1 is quieter with mainly luxury accommodation. Whichever area you choose, we're sure you'll have lasting memories of Boracay's amazing beaches and sunsets.

Frequently Asked Questions

Many of the 17 beaches in Boracay are beautiful, with white, palm-fringed sands. The popular White Beach is divided into three sections with both lively and more relaxed parts. Private beaches such as Banyugan Beach and Punta Bunga Beach, at the Shangri-La Resort, have a very secluded feel. 

There are no direct flights to Boracay, and the nearest airport is Caticlan Airport, on the north-western tip of neighbouring Panay Island. From here it’s a 5-minute trike ride over to the jetty port, and then a 15-minute boat journey over to Boracay.
