Boracay is a small island in the Visayas region of the Philippines, located off the northern tip of Panay island, and usually accessed by an hour’s flight south of Manila to Kalibo International Airport in Panay. It is one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations, whose visitors come for the beautiful white sand beaches, luxury hotels and restaurants. The 4km-long White Beach on the west coast has most of the islands hotels, and is typically divided into three sections: the top-end hotels in Station 1 at the northern tip, the majority of the island’s shops and restaurants in Station 2 in the centre, and budget hotels in Station 3 in the south of the island, near the boat terminal. Bulabog Beach on the east coast is quieter, but used mainly for watersports.
