    How to plan a Boracay Trip

    Information and activities to plan your vacation in Boracay.

    Boracay is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Philippines, but often travelers ask about when to go and where to stay.

    We hope that this article will help you to plan an enjoyable trip to Boracay.

    When to go:

    Boracay can be visited all year round.

     

    High Season

    The dry season in Boracay lasts from November to May. This is considered as the peak season in Boracay.

    In this period the rates for hotels and flights are at their priciest and crowds at their heaviest. Christmas, New Year’s, and especially Easter Break are the most popular times for travel to Boracay.

    If you’re travelling during high season it’s best to have accommodations pre-booked well in advance.

     

    Low Season

    During the low season from June until November, Boracay Island is not that crowded, and we can get to enjoy it differently and uniquely.

    During this time, skies are cloudy and rain showers are more common, especially in the month of October.

     

    Bad Weather

    The low season between June and November is also the typhoon season in the Philippines.

    If you travel during the wet season it’s always a good idea to purchase a travel insurance.

    In the event of a typhoon or other unforeseen severe weather, the travel insurance can provide coverage for the Trip Cancellation or Interruption. If your trip is cancelled, the insurance will refund all the non-refundable trip costs

    You may want to consider purchasing a travel insurance to be on the safe side.

    Where to stay

    Boracay Island has accommodations to suit all budgets, from the rustic “nipa hut” (bungalows made of bamboo and nipa palm leaves) to modern luxurious hotels with conference facilities and gyms through to spas to boutique resorts.

    Most are located along the four-kilometer White Beach in the West. A few more are interspersed along the North and East coasts as well as the island’s interior.

     

    Should I book my hotel in White Beach – Station 1, 2 or 3?

     

    Station 1

    Station 1 occupies the northern and widest side of the White Beach. It’s home to a great choice of luxury beach resorts and it’s not too crowded. The shallow water is perfect for families with children.

     

    Station 2

    Station 2 is the epicenter of Boracay, where most of the mid-range resorts are located. It’s a busy and lively beach slightly narrower than Station 1. Here there is a great choice of bars and restaurants and it’s just walking distance to a shopping mall.
    The water is less shallow than Station 1.

     

    Station 3

    Station 3 is the most tranquil part of White Beach. There are many budget hotels and a few laid-back bars and restaurant made of bamboo. It enjoys a peaceful atmosphere and it’s perfect for backpackers. Here the water becomes deep faster than at the two other stations.
