Living In Boracay Island

Boracay Island in the Philippines has been one of the favorite tourist destinations for people visiting the country. Its white sandy beaches, clear blue sea, delicious food and accommodating people make it seem like a paradise. No wonder that it has been voted one of the best places in the world a few times. Because of this, a lot of people are considering to relocate and live on this beautiful island.

There are already quite a number of foreign expats currently living in Boracay, some own beach resorts or they own/rent a house for themselves. But living in Boracay Island needs a lot of consideration. You need to do a lot of research before you make the move.

The first thing you need to consider is in terms of money. Because Boracay is a well-known tourist spot, you can expect that owning land or property is very expensive. The cost of houses and properties are more expensive than many other places in the Philippines. Even though the cost of living is cheaper compared to other countries, it is still considered as expensive if you compare it to other cities within the country.

In terms of transportation, you have to travel by plane, bus and a ferry just to go to the island itself. It can take some time before you can go to other areas outside the island. But travelling within the island itself is not really a problem. There are plenty of tricycles, passenger jeepneys and vans to use.

When it comes to internet and phone access, there’s really no problem at all, since major telephone and broadband companies provide services in the island. There are plenty of markets and restaurants, so getting food is not a problem. And if you are a type of person who likes going to clubs and bars to get some drinks and have a party from time to time, there are plenty to choose from in the area.
