Boracay is a tropical island, only seven kilometers long and shaped like a barbell. Its premiere White Beach, was rated the best in the world by the Sun Herald in Australia, National Geographic, Yahoo Travel, and Harper's Magazine - and for good reason.

Through its 40,000-year history, the Philippines and Boracay Island have been under everything from Buddhist kingdoms from India, Islamic kingdoms from Malacca (present-day Malaysia), crown rule under the Spanish, commonwealth domination under the Americans, Japanese occupation during World War II, a home-ruled dictatorship in the latter-half of the 20th century, and finally, democracy in the late 1980s.

The modern history of Boracay as a tourist's dream destination, however, begins only in the 1970s. But it was not until the 1990s that Boracay even got electricity. Today, Boracay still remains a pristine travel destination offering modern day conveniences.

Boracay's two primary tourism beaches, White Beach and Bolabog Beach, are located on opposite sides of the island's narrow central area. White Beach faces westwards and Bolabog Beach faces eastwards. But the island is blessed with smaller beaches as well.

Boracay may be a small island, but it offers a surprising variety of breathtaking scenery and activities that can be easily explored by walking, bicycle, motorbike, trekking or renting tricycles. The northern end of the island is quite mountainous with steep roads, plateaus and forest. Central Boracay, where most of the resorts are located and all other activities take place, is narrow and flat. The southern end of Boracay is hilly and ideal for hiking expeditions or mountain-bike tours. Below is a list of a few things you can do while in the island.

Aqua sports

Boracay's White Beach is a virtual paradise for aqua sports like snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, windsurfing, kiteboarding, jet skiing, parasailing and skimboarding among others. Very popular are the banana-boat and fly fish rides.

Balinghai

  • A tiny cove at the northern tip of the island, Balinghai is best approached from White Beach on a paraw (wooden sailboat with outriggers) particularly at sunset.

Bat caves

The bat caves are found on the northeast coast of Yapak. The cave is the home of the cave bats and the surrounding trees are the home of the giant fruit bats whose wingspan reach up to four feet. The fruit bats fly regularly at twilight for their nocturnal hunt for food. Naturalists, photographers, spelunkers and brave souls willing to bear the intense stench in the cave can hire local guides - usually young children from the village - to lead them through the jungle paths to the caves. Environmentalists, however, would rather leave the fruit bats to their daytime sleep and wait for the sunset at White Beach as hundreds, sometimes thousands, of bats take their nocturnal flight right over their heads.

Beach sport activities

White Beach is a perfect place for beach activities. Beach volleyball, beach soccer, beach tennis, and Frisbee are widely and spontaneously played, especially in the late afternoon. Anyone is welcome to join in and play for fun.

Bolabog

If you come to Boracay during the monsoon season between December and March, the boat ride from Caticlan will take you here. While White Beach is situated on the western side of the island, Bolabog is located in the Eastern side.

Dead forest

The dead forest is located at the southern end of Bolabog Beach. It is an abandoned fishpond with whitened branches of dead mangroves reaching out of the dark water. The dams of the fishpond were destroyed by big waves decades ago and the fishpond with its mighty mangroves was flooded with seawater. The effect is impressive and ideal for photography.

Diniwid

When you want to get away from the activity on White Beach, take an easy walk to Diniwid Beach. This 200-meter shoreline is accessible through a footpath cut into a rocky cliff.

Golf

An 18-hole, 72 par golf course is located in the northern part of Boracay. The golf course was designed by Graham Marsh and is, according to golf enthusiasts, one of the most beautiful courses in the Philippines. We would be delighted to make reservations if you would like to go green.

Horseback riding

  • Explore parts of the island away from the usual tourist trail on friendly native horses. All levels of experience are catered for.

Gyms

  • Several well-equipped gyms are located in the center of the island. We are more than happy to make arrangements for you.

Manoc-manoc

ituated near the southernmost tip of the island, Manoc-Manoc Beach is a good place for swimming and a panoramic view of Caticlan against a backdrop of serenely blue mountains.

Markets

Boracay's exotic market life takes place today at two outdoor malls a little bit north and south of Boat Station 2. Both are easily accessible from White Beach and from the main road. The northern D'Mall has an upscale part with furniture and artistic handicrafts, a vegetable and fish department and a restaurant square. The new market south of Boat Station 2 called D'Talipapa offers visitors exotic sights and impressions of local seafood, meat, vegetables and other delicacies as well as many souvenirs shops.

Mountain biking and hiking

  • Exploring the island on a mountain bike or on foot is not only healthy, but also one of the best ways to discover out-of-the-way places in the island.

Mount Luho

This is the highest elevation on Boracay Island 100 meters above sea level. For the uninitiated, it can be an excruciating ascent but definitely worth the view. Once you reach the crest, a little kiosk serves cold water and soft drinks and one can take a rest in one of the hammocks between the trees, overlooking the central and southern part of Boracay.

Outrigger boat sailing

Cruise the waves, go beach-hopping and bring your snorkeling gear for a tour of some of the best spots around the island on a native paraw (outrigger sailing boat). We can even arrange a wonderful picnic basket for a hearty meal and refreshing drinks. We highly recommended the Red Pirates skipper and boat.

Sandcastles

If you are strolling on White Beach in the evening, you will come across these lovely sand sculptures. Boracay's children start building their fairytale castles in the late afternoon. By nightfall, these castles come to life as they light them up with little candles.

Scuba diving

There are many dive sites around Boracay for both beginners and experienced divers. Roughly 30 dive shops offer their services for the 20 or more dive sites within a 30-minute boat ride. Some of the dive shops explore also more distant dive sites even those as far as northern Palawan. Most of the Pacific Ocean fish species are residents around Boracay, including manta rays and turtles.

Shopping

Exploring Boracay's many shops and outdoor malls at one's leisure is a fascinating and unique shopping experience. From widely available beach items, to jewelry made from shells and pearls, handmade lamps, antiques, native woodcarvings and sarongs, one can find all of that along the beach path of White Beach or in one of the open-air malls.

Wellness

  • Boracay boasts of one of the best destination spas and wellness retreats not only in the Philippines but also in Asia.

White Beach

White Beach is the four-kilometer stretch of powdery white sand that extends along the western coast of the island that is considered one of the world's most beautiful beaches. The White Beach Path runs alongside White Beach, starting from Boat Station 1 and terminating by Boat Station 3. Most of the island's businesses are concentrated on this strip.

Windsurfing and kiteboarding

Bolabog Beach, on the eastern side of central Boracay, comes alive during the early months of the year when triggered by the Northeast Monsoon when windsurfers and kiteboarders skim and compete through its waters. During the Southwest Monsoon, when the wind changes direction, these same windsurfers and kite boarders move to White Beach.

Yachting

Experience sailing aboard the beautiful 40-foot yacht Tamarind. Perfect for sunset trips and day cruises, our Front Office can make arrangements for a wonderful trip, complete with delicious food and drinks.

Yapak

Situated along the island's northern end, this 800-meter beach is made up of puka shells bleached white in the sun. Relatively not crowded, the location gives you a feeling of remoteness.

Yoga

Boracay's climate and slow-paced environment is ideal for meditation and learning yoga. The island boasts of several internationally-acclaimed yoga teachers as residents offering private as well as public classes.

Driving directions from Luzon

Caticlan, the entry point for Boracay, can be reached by private cars or air-conditioned buses, via the 'strong republic nautical highway', stretching from Batangas, Luzon, to Cagayan de Oro, Mindanao.

A RoRo (Roll On Roll Off) vessel leaves Batangas daily at 8.30 a.m. to Calapan, Mindoro.

From there drive your own car or board a mini-van or air-conditioned bus to Roxas, Mindoro, where another RoRo vessel leaves at 2 p.m. for Caticlan, where the boat arrives at 6 p.m..

Private cars can be parked at one of the many shady and secured parking lots for a fee. No cars are allowed on Boracay Island.

The same RoRo vessel leaves Caticlan daily at 9 a.m. Safe and guarded parking lots are available in Caticlan.

Arrival by airplane

The fastest way to Boracay is flying to Caticlan airport, which takes 35 to 55 minutes, depending on the type of aircraft. Four domestic air carriers serve the route Manila-Caticlan with up to 30 flight daily and offer also daily connections from Caticlan to Cebu City, the hub for Eastern Visayas and Mindanao. Plane sizes are limited to around 50 seaters, due to the length of the runway.

The Kalibo airport is serviced by three major airlines and it takes 40 minutes flying time from Manila to Kalibo. Several bus and transport companies ply the route Kalibo-Caticlan (60 to 75 min.) in air conditioned vans and buses. Kalibo is generally serviced by larger planes and is on the way to transform the airport into an international hub.

Arrival by ferry

MBRS Shipping Lines have two boats plying the route from Manila to Caticlan. The ships leave Manila's North Harbor, Pier 8, every Friday, Monday, and Wednesday at 5 p.m.. Arrival time in Caticlan is the next day between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m..

Other shipping companies service the route Manila to Dumaguit, half an hour east from Kalibo. The companies are WG&A and Negros Navigation.

    "As a writer, stress is a constant in my life and so is shoulder and back pain. Coming to Mandala and experiencing the Asian Signature Massage, I not only found relief for my chronic aches & pains, I felt cared for by people who seemed to know exactly what I needed. What was supposed to be just a relaxing treat on my holiday turned out to be profoundly cathartic. For the first time, my incessant mind was silenced, my thoughts were a dreamy blur, and I left feeling so vibrant, alive and totally brand new. Now back at work, I am inspired and I realize that the massage literally dissolved blockages I didn’t know I had. In a word, it’s MAGIC!"

    "Mandala has grown from being ‘Boracay’s best kept secret’ to a spa that aficionados say can rival those in Bali and Thailand. They are right! It is a spa, which truly indulges its clients, to the type of treatments offered. After my Asian Signature Massage, I was so zoned out, I almost walked out the window."

    "My husband and I stayed in a Garden Villa for two incredible nights. Boracay is such a busy place, that it truly is amazing that the Mandala has been able to maintain the peace and serenity on their property, yet be so conveniently close to the beach. From the moment you arrive, you can already feel yourself unwinding. The staff all move slowly and calmly as they promote the spa environment."

    "Our villa was beautiful. Every detail was taken care of from the incense burning, the soft music playing to all the fresh flowers, they really ensure you have the complete experience. The Garden Villa offers an outdoor sitting area in a garden like setting. Not sure which villas would offer a view, but being surrounded by tropical foliage was a view enough for us!"

    "The food: can't really complain when the surroundings are so beautiful. It was nice to have fresh and nutritious foods to start the day. We also had dinner there one night. It was OK. The food, especially sauces for foods (wine reduction, hollandaise, etc), is not their strength but again, it's hard to complain when it is all so beautiful."

    "Morning yoga: if you have the time and interest, do join the class. The instructor I had was excellent (welcoming, unintimidating, made the class appropriate for a range of levels) and the space is comfortable."

    "Spa treatment: In our villa, my husband had the Hilot Trilogy and I had the Filipino Heritage Tradition. We both really enjoyed our treatments. I honestly don't think you can go wrong with any choice, but I definitely recommend what we had."

    "Location: it is a nice walk down to the beach. A bit far from the centre of the action, but there are so many restaurants, bars and people in general that it is actually a nice distance away! Don't be discouraged by the location. So many recommendations suggest staying at station 1 but when we were in Boracay, the beach was not very nice (the water was really green), so we were happy to not have spent the premium to stay there! We loved our stay and would definitely recommend it!"

    "AMAZING!!! Cannot speak highly enough of this place. It is paradise. Checked into a detox villa which meant no TV and no direct access to WiFi, yoga class every morning and breakfast. The spa packages are totally unique. Very attentive and pure indulgence. The Boracay Bliss was well worth the 3.5 hours!! The staff are so friendly and always acknowledged you as you walked past. Simple gesture but makes all the difference. They are extremely efficient and good at what they do and always made me feel welcomed.Even if it's only for a few nights I can guarantee you will feel refreshed and don't want to leave!!!"

    "I stayed at Mandala with my parents and my sister. We had two villas side-by-side. It was the most comfortable, memorable vacation I've had in a long time. The Mandala staff are all so caring and pay attention to little details that make the entire holiday experience just that much more special. We took the Yoga vacation package which includes private yoga classes and a spa treatment everyday. The teacher we had was awesome and was the perfect instructor for a family class. The daily spa treatments were amazing, professional and a great complement to the yoga. The food at the in-house restaurant was delicious and healthy. We definitely recommend the packages for value for money. This resort is most suitable for travellers who are looking for a quiet, relaxed, early-nights holiday. The resort is about a 10-15 minute walk to the beach which makes it perfect for those who want to be away from the hustle of White Beach."
