ABOUT THE ISLAND

Boracay is located approximately 315 kilometres south of Manila and 2 kilometres off the northwest tip of Panay Island in Western Visayas region of the Philippines.

On the west coast, you will find the famous White Beach upheld by palm trees, bars, and restaurants. On the east coast, strong winds make Bulabog Beach a hub for kite boarding and other extreme water sports enthusiasts. During Low Season, Bulabog Beach is also the site for water sports activities. Located nearby is an observation deck at Mount Luho, that offers amazing panoramic views of the island. Offshore, you will find coral reefs and shipwrecks, home to diverse marine life. The island also has several other beaches, which are less crowded than the White Beach. The most popular among these other beaches are Puka Beach and Hinugtan Beach.

 

2018 Closure: In April 2018 the Philippine Government decreed a 6-month closure of the island for tourists to undertake major renovation works, especially of the sewerage system, which had become obsolete and insufficient. President Duterte ordered the full closure of the island, for six months effective April 26, 2018 to rehabilitate and resolve the environmental issues surrounding Boracay.
