While you may be in the middle of the Philippines, and less than an hour from Manila’s 12 million residents, a few hours on this tropical island will leave you feeling like you’re in the middle of nowhere. Boracay is a small island with a permanent population of just 12,000. Its six square miles (10 square kilometers) are home to countless pristine beaches, a lively nightlife and some of the best watersports in South East Asia. In 2012 Boracay was named the best island in the world by a popular travel magazine.
Most of Boracay’s 1,000,000 annual visitors come to the island for the dry season between November and April. This is the ideal time for swimming and watersports, as the beaches remain calm. The months between May and October are therefore much quieter and more affordable, as many hotels and tour operators have seasonal prices. Visitors are advised to check weather warnings, as typhoons are a possibility in the region.
Boracay’s main attractions are its beaches. The most famous of these, the three-mile (four-kilometer) long White Beach, lives up to its name. The popular public beach is lined by tall palms, providing some much-needed shade during the peak of summer, and is ideal for swimming. Families will love the safe shallow water, while the more adventurous will find excellent kite surfing, wind surfing and scuba dive operators along the foreshore. Behind the beach is the main commercial region of the island, D-Mall, where you will find great shopping and eateries.
Those seeking a more secluded beach experience will love Puka Beach, home to the rare Puka shell, while those seeking some excitement will enjoy the cliff jumping at Ariel’s Point. Get between Boracay’s many inlets, coves and beaches on board a motorized tricycle, the island’s answer to taxis. Scooters and bicycles can also be hired for those wanting to explore the island on their own time.
Visitors can reach Boracay via Manila, with regular flights to the nearby Caticlan and Kalibo airports. From here a number of shuttles and taxis run to the ferry terminal, where you’ll be whisked away to paradise.
It was truly paradise. The room, the pool, the beaches, the restaurants, the buffet breakfast... the service!!! Everything you could want for the perfect beach vacay.
Customer service is on point! No negative comments about this place. It was indeed a paradise
It was a great stay with family and friends. We enjoyed all of the amenities, pools and entertainment that this resort had to offer. Our only “con” was that it is far from the main area of Boracay beach. Although there is a free shuttle that runs to and from the resort to D’Mall (close to Station ...
Staff were great and knows excellent customer service! hotel and its amenities are clean and well maintained. We had a great experience here and will definitely come back :)
I love the Red Coconut Beach Hotel. The Restaurant and bar staff are very helpful and friendly. I will stay there again. I will not stay pool side again. The club next door is to loud to late. The other rooms in the main building are quiet.
Great location to rest up- private beach and great facilities makes it an ideal location for a relaxing resort stay.
My family and I had an amazing time at Discovery Shores! We were absolutely taken cared of from the moment we stepped out of the airport until we checked out of the hotel. The staff was amazing, our rooms were always cleaned, food was good too. Thank you Discovery Shores!
