Boracay Island is among the world’s most beautiful holiday destinations. In recent years the island has soared in popularity, which has led to a growing cosmopolitan population and rapid development. This brief article will touch on common tourist FAQ’s:

Where Is Boracay Island?

Of the 4,000 islands that constitute the Philippines, Boracay is arguably the most beautiful. The island is based in the north-west and resides on the northern tip of Panay. The island is around 7km long, its shape is often likened to a dog bone or dumbbell.

How To Get To Boracay Island …

Traveling to Boracay isn’t without complications. The island’s location means you’ll need to stagger your journey in stages. European and American tourists typically travel by plane via Manila and Caticlan airport, based in Aklan. Tourist’s who wish to stay for over 3 weeks will need to file an application with the Philippine Embassy in their country of origin.

For smooth transfers, we recommend Cebu Airlines and South West Tours.

Best Time To Go To Boracay …

Conditions on Boracay shift violently through the year and are distinguished by two distinct intervals; the dry and rainy seasons.

The dry season (Amihan) is from November to April, when Boracay is at its busiest. From Christmas through the Ati-Atihan festival Boracay is at siege. During this period accommodation prices soar. For competitive rates, consider visiting later in the year.

The rainy season (Habagat), is commonly referred to as the ‘Monsoon Season’. While the conditions scare away fair-weather tourists, it draws surfers and kite-boarding enthusiasts. On Boracay, activities abound the year through.
