Boracay island

Ultimate guide (May 2024)
Boracay is a popular island in the Philippines. White Beach is one of the best beaches in the world, but the crowd slightly spoils the experience. However, the island has some more secluded beaches, though not so beautiful. Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]
This island ranks #6 of the "Best islands in the World"

Hotels [edit]

Most hotels are located near White Beach. Average price level is inexpensive, as everywhere in Southeast Asia.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Caticlan Airport (MPH). Next, take a tuk-tuk to Caticlan Jetty Port (or walk about 10 minutes). Take a ferry to Boracay island. Next - hire a tuk-tuk.

You may also fly to Kalibo International Airport (KLO), located 63 km from Caticlan ferry terminal. In this case, you'll have to take minivan or bus and spend almost 1.5 hours to get to the port. However, this route has some advantages. First, the Caticlan airport is able to serve larger aircrafts, including international flights. Second, there's less chance of a flight delay due to bad weather (as large aircrafts are less dependent on weather conditions than smaller ones). Third, your luggage is guaranteed to arrive with you in the same plane (while in Caticlan airport baggage often arrives next flight).

When to go [edit]

From January to May. The rest of time there is a rainy season in the island.
