7 Resorts in Boracay To Book For Your 2023 Vacations

Are you ready for your next great adventure?



It’s the island in Aklan province that remains among the top beach destinations in the world: the world-renowned tropical paradise Boracay. Known for its pristine white beaches, clean turquoise waters, and lush scenery, this gem is less than an hour away from Manila by plane, which makes it an ideal easy summer getaway for Filipinos and foreigners alike.


A quick recap of island vacationing facts: Boracay’s White Beach stretches across three districts. If you prefer a beachfront scene with a more calming atmosphere, Station 1 is less crowded and more laidback, perfect for families on vacation. Meanwhile, Station 2 is the most popular area as it is located in the middle of White Beach where the majority of Boracay restaurants and entertainment spots like D’Mall and Station X are located. Station 2 is also a hub for water activities like parasailing and island hopping. Station 3 is the quietest part of White Beach and has most of the affordable resorts in Boracay.


All this is pretty well-known, so how can you enjoy Boracay in a brand-new way? An option is to switch things up with where you book your stay.
