by lovemothernature

Hello fellow Boracay lovers, hope you can help me. My mom and I will be going to boracay for 7 days in March. Can you please suggest a Resort
- With a swimming pool
- Beach front (she can't walk far because of her knees)
- Station 1 or 2
- Below or around 3,500

Thanks so much in advance,
Lou

Red Coconut & Carmela de Boracay would be my best bet. Also, they are near D'Mall so you can take or buy some of your meals there. Goodluck!

Don't stay at Red Coconut if you plan on swimming outside your hotel - there is a polluted, smelly creek running into the sea there.

And La Carmela, apart from all the bad reviews, is a tacky looking place in a bad location.

I quite liked La Carmella. Beach front,pool,restaurant. and lots of other things close by....Not a fancy place, pretty basic, but I had no issues...spent most of my time on the beach anyways. I always think the reviews are people expecting 4 star for a low price. Make sure you ask for a ground floor room if mobility is an issue.

I wasn't expecting 4 star, but I was expecting clean. there is much better budget accommodation available, even on the beach, so I'd advise people to shop around.

Travel Tips for Boracay Island

Boracay is NOT "Bora"

by CatBurglar

In recent years, certain city socialites have begun calling the island "Bora".
DON'T!
Firstly, the people of Boracay really don't like it. Respect them, they are proud of their name.
And second, there already is an island called Bora - it's in Polynesia, so it is foolish to rename Boracay after another existing place.
"Bora" is not cool! You sound like a poser!

San Miguel Beer

by sirenna

San Miguel is the most popular beer in the Philippines - its on sale everywhere. This is not a bad tasting beer considering how cheap it is (usually less than 50 pesos). San Mig Light is also available in most bars - this is actually stronger than regular San Miguel but lower in calories (genius!). Other beers you might come across are San Miguel Super Dry, Blue Ice, Cerveza Negra and Red Horse. Beware of the last one as it produces fierce hangovers!

Snorkelling - Feed the Fishes

by bike_packer

There are many snorkelling sites around Boracay Island but where we love most is the coral reef at the northeast coast of the island at Yapak. The place eventually becomes full of boats bringing divers as they come and go for an average of 1 hour snorkel activities all day long. The more the merrier, I feel, with this kind of activity.

What makes snorkeliing here a hit? Our tour guide advised us to bring bread to feed the fishes. We didnt know until we were on it that the fishes would have a bite of that bread right upon releasing them in your hand. (It is a scary feeling to hold on anticipating the fishes would bite your fingers). Surely, it was a very close encounter with these rainbow-colored tropical fishes. We brought our own gears but these could be rented from the boat operators at about P100 per set. Also, for the not-so-athletic bodies, wearing a life vest would be a plus.

Barazula Beach

by sirenna

This is a tiny little beach at the South end of the island. Not usually frequented by daytrippers, it's a nice place to go for a picnic. There are no bars, restaurants or facilities there - even the little hut in the picture doesn't exist any more. Bring everything you need, and be sure to take all your trash home with you. There is some pretty good snorkeling in this area too.
UPDATE - this area has sadly (and some would say illegally) been privatised.

souvenir t-shirts

by sweet_sentiments about palengke/d mall/white beach area

just your ordinary tiangge.... although you can find some "sosy" stalls at 'd mall....but i must warn you, their price are more expensive.... souvenir t-shirts, sandos, swimsuits, shorts, sarong, malong, sandals, beach dress... it really would depend on the items your going to buy
