Boracay Island

Caticlan Panay Island

Geography Boracay is located on the western part of Visayas, specifically in the province of Aklan, one of the four provinces in Panay Island. It is 350 kilometers south of Manila, and comprised of three barangays— Yapak in the North, Balabag in the center, and Manoc-Manoc in the South. The whole island, shaped like a dog-bone, is only 7kms long and 1km wide at its narrowest. The main tourism area, White Beach, is 4kms long and is divided into three stations— Station 1, Station 2 and Station 3. The stations were named after boat stations back in the day when boats still docked on the beach. The second most popular beach is on the opposite side of the island called Bulabog Beach, where water sports enthusiasts gather to surf and sail their kites. Boracay has 10 other beaches, like Puka Shell Beach, located in the north, and some other secluded beaches such as Diniwid Beach, Ilig-Iligan Beach, Punta Bunga Beach, Balinghai Beach, Lagutan Beach, Tambisaan Beach, Manoc Manoc Beach, Cagban Beach, Tulubhan Beach and Lapus Lapus Beach. Some beaches are owned by private resorts but several are still accessible by dirt road or boat.



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

Tourist Seasons

Low Season is when the wind blows “westward” onto White Beach. There is more rain than usual, but there are fewer tourists, and lower prices on accommodations, as well as cheaper goods and services. The low season begins in June, and ends in October. During High Season, the wind comes 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. Since it is winter in the northern hemisphere, most foreign tourists come in numbers to escape the cold from their countries. This is also the best time for water sports since the wind is reliable for kite surfing on Bulabog Beach. High Season starts in October and ends in May. Peak Season is when tourists visiting Boracay reach its height. This is usually around the holidays of 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 to Caticlan Jetty Port By Air:

The most convenient way to go to Boracay is to fly by plane. 1. Caticlan Airport – This is a small airport located 5 minutes away from Caticlan Jetty Port. Because of its small runway, only turboprop airplanes are used. Domestic carriers such as Cebu Pacific and Air Philippines are the only ones who use this airport. It is possible to walk

from the airport to the jetty port, but if you’re carrying heavy luggage, you can also take the tricycle for P50. 2. Kalibo Airport – A larger airport located 90 minutes away from Caticlan Jetty Port. From the airport, travelers have to take a van or use a transportation service to go to Caticlan port. There are some international flights using this airport, and most airlines are available. By Sea: For adventure-seekers, a budget cruise-line known as 2GO, departs from Batangas Port (2 hours away from Manila) and sail to Caticlan Port, for roughly 9-10 hours. By Land and Sea: Another way to reach the island is by taking a RORO, or Roll On/Roll Off Bus Ferry. The trip

is a combination of overland bus travel and sailing. From Manila, the bus will take you to Batangas Port, ferry to Calapan, Mindoro and then stop at Roxas, Mindoro before traveling to Caticlan Port. This is perfect for those who seek the cheapest and off-beaten path to Boracay. The journey can take from 12-15 hours.

From Caticlan Jetty Port to Boracay Island

Upon Arriving in Caticlan Jetty Port, tourists have to pay an Environmental Fee of 100Php, Terminal Fee of 25Php and a Boat Fee of 25Php. These tickets are bought outside before entering the luggage check. The ferry from Caticlan to Boracay (Cagban Port during High Season & Tambisaan Port during Low Season) runs from 5:00AM to 6:00PM. There are ferries that travel at night from 6:00PM to 9:00PM that costs 30Php. There are some ferries that sail after 10PM, called Night Navigation, but you have to check and book with a special transportation service. Both Cagban Port and Tambisaan Port are located on the southern tip of the island. From either of the ports, it will take you 10-15minutes to go to White Beach. There is a terminal of chartered tricycles outside the port which costs 150Php for a maximum of five persons. However, if you don’t have much luggage, you can walk further outside the port and get a regular tricycle for 20Php per person, to take you to White Beach.



Getting Around

Most of the tourists stay near White Beach, where the majority of the accommodations, bars, restaurants, and activity centers are located. It is possible to walk from one station to another, but if you’d like to take a tricycle, you can just hail one on the main road for 10Php per person (non-chartered). Bulabog Beach, where water sports enthusiasts practice kite surfing, is only a 10 minute walk from central White Beach. If you want to get around the island and see other beaches, such as the Puka Shell Beach, you can hire a tricycle for 150Php per hour. The highest point on the island is the Ocean Tower on Mt. Luho. This is a great sight-seeing point, and can be reached by riding tricycle, or with a half an hour trek using Lapus-Lapus Road from Bulabog Beach. If you prefer to explore the island on your own, there are bicycles for rent around White Beach. Motorbikes are also available, as well as ATVs, and Buggy Cars. If you want to travel by sea, a traditional Visayan sailing boat with two outriggers, Paraw, can be chartered for a day trip.



The currency is the Philippine Peso (PhP). Bill denominations are: 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1,000 pesos. It is better to bring your cash in 500 PhP denominations as you will find that getting change for 1,000 Peso bill can be difficult at times. ATMs dispense in 500 and 1,000 PhP bills. There are ATMs on White Beach, at D’Mall, and on the main road that accept foreign debit/bank cards. There are three banks on the island: Allied Bank of the Philippines, Bank of the Philippine Islands and Metrobank. During high and peak season the ATM’s tend to run out of cash and are not refilled until the next business day, so withdraw money early in the day and before the weekend. Foreign Currency is best exchanged at the banks or money changing stores. Only big restaurants and hotels accept credit cards including MasterCard, Visa and American Express. Personal checks are generally not accepted. Traveler’s 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 safety deposit boxes are available for rent.


Boracay Island is serviced by three mobile providers, SMART, SUN CELLULAR and GLOBE. They have good reception through most of the island. Visitors can purchase a SIM card with a local number for 65 Php then buy Pre-Paid Calling cards for 100Php or 500Php, or electronic load for as low as 10Php. Text messages are the main form of communication at a cost of 1 peso per text, making the Philippines one of the Text Capitals of the World. Standard call rates range from 6 to 8Php per minute.


International texts are priced between 15-20Php, while regular IDD calls are normally $0.40 per minute. Landline best forofinternational calls.

Bars, Pubs & Clubs


Voted as one of the world’s top Party Beaches, Boracay’s nightlife continues to impress with it’s smorgasbord selection of the hippest bars and clubs! Happy Hour usually starts from 5 to 7, although some bars extend this until 8pm. Enjoy your cocktail while chilling on a beach bean bag chair, have your drink served in your cabana, or grab a beer at your resort’s pool bar. This is the island that never sleeps! Station 3 has a more laid-back party culture with its native style reggae bars. Check out Red Pirates for an old beach bar shack style, great music, cool people and a cozy atmosphere. They mostly serve drinks, and food is only available every Friday during BBQ night. Probably the heart of the party and center of all action is Station 2 withs an unbeatable nightlife starting from Regency’s full band on the beach and brand new Wave Club with an air-conditioned dance floor. The Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel also has a live band you can enjoy while dining. Summer Place caters to the club goers, where DJ’ed parties are usually one of the last to go down every night. Epic is a great choice if you want to dine and dance the night away. D’Hobbit House has nightly performers. Bom Bom Bar and Pat’s Creek offer a very relaxed reggae environment with nightly performers. Mint also has live music directly on the beach. Bamboo



Lounge has regular fire dancers who will light your cigarette while twirling fire in your face, if you are brave enough! Nigi Nigi Nu Noos is a great place to enjoy ice cold San Miguel draft or tropical cocktails in a native style bar and restaurant. Don’t miss out on all you can beer and ribs every Friday evening! Juice Bar in Plazoleta draws a young crowd every night, while Exit Bar, located between Bom Bom and Red Coconut has a great mix of locals, divers, kiteboarders and all around interesting people. Expats often congregate at Crafty’s Rooftop Bar above Crafts Supermarket, Rumbas in D’mall, and Nigi Nigi Nu Noos. Station 1 is also home to a lot of cool and happening bars on the beach, but most of them are inside resorts. Ariel’s House and Friday’s have great live music on selected nights! If you go to Station 1’s Main Road, Boracay’s oldest bar, Cocomangas hosts Full Moon Parties, and the iconic drinking game of “Still Standing after 15”. Partygoers who can still stand up after drinking 15 shooters receive a plaque on the wall and a shirt, plus one point for their country. Club Paraw offers great food, dancing and lounging on White Beach. Best time to party? Every night! However a few times of year stand out as the best since a lot of money is put into brand promotion so you can expect party grandeur. Come for Halloween, Christmas/ New Year week and Holy week (Easter) if you want to see some of the best parties in the world.

Mermaids in Boracay! The Philippine Mermaid Swimming Academy (PMSA)

is the first of its kind in the world to offer regular Mermaid Lessons! Mermaiding— or swimming with a Mono-fin tail is more than just about fulfilling your childhood dream of becoming a mermaid. The water sports activity is based on the diving science of fin swimming, and incorporates basic swimming styles. It strengthens the body’s core and allows you to work your leg muscles. The two-hour introductory lesson is composed of six parts (mermaid introduction and stretching, how to wear and care for the mermaid tail, swimming with the tail and floaters, swimming without floaters, swimming practice and drills, and individual assessment). After the necessary introduction, students can learn how to do surface swimming while snorkeling. Upon completing it, the mermaids can do scuba diving! According to Normeth Preglo, one of the founders of PMSA, mermaiding can help non-swimmers build the confidence to learn how to swim. There’s something magical about putting on a mermaid tail and moving across the water that makes students motivated and feel less afraid of swimming. “We have students who come here and they don’t know how to swim, but with a tail, they can swim well!” She said. The friendly Mermaid Coaches of PMSA are actually certified Rescue Divers with extensive background in conducting swimming lessons. The academy just started in November of last year, and it continues to expand on the neighboring islands of Tablas, Dumaguete and Cebu. A Manila based school is also on the way! However, one of the events worth anticipating is the Mermaid Olympics. In this competition, the mermaids can showcase free style tricks with their tails. Aside from being a water sport, Normeth believes that mermaiding is a good way to promote environmental consciousness. She said that the academy engages local communities in preserving the ocean by carrying out awareness raising activities, “because if we don’t have clean oceans, there will be no mermaids”. When asked about the rewarding part of this sport, she said, “When you swim with a tail, suddenly, you’re part of the ocean.” PMSA offers daily lessons and courses. Have your first mermaid experience today! Book your lessons today with My Boracay Adventures by calling 036 288 9999 or 09998890042 or 09173948083
