  • Island Girl Philippines (Sandals and Accessories): Accessorize like a true island girl

    by deardre Updated Mar 1, 2013
    1 more image

    If you died and went to fashion heaven, that heaven would look a lot like Island Girl -- the store is just right on the beach, after all, with a plethora of different resortwear accessories, sandals, and styles to help you look the part.

    Island Girl doesn't sell your typical handicraft accessories with the same style from twenty years ago. The products are colorful and on-trend -- they even have necklaces and bracelets in oh-so-fashionable fluo colors. They sell resortwear but with a twist -- made from eco-friendly materials and in pocket-friendly prices, too.

    Another great thing about Island Girl is that not only are their products made from either sustainable or recycled materials, they practice social responsibility by subcontracting underprivileged women to make these accessories, providing them the ability to earn extra income.

    What to pay: 500-1500

    D Mall: D Mall

    by shohman Written May 13, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    D Mall is the main shopping area right off the beach. Need a hat? A freshly gutted tuna? a haircut? Assorted t shirts? Almost anything you need can be found here, most of it very cheap. They even have a dentist! D Mall is an outdoor maze of shops between the main road and White Beach. Most places will haggle prices with you, but to get the best price it helps to have a Filipino with you.

    What to buy: almost anything.

    What to pay: most stuff is cheap. We got hats for $3. Good quality hats! And you can bargain with the vendors.

    kiosks: Along the white beach path

    by tidzy Written Jan 18, 2009

    There are a lot of kiosks and stalls lined up along the white beach path selling jewelry. Some offer hair braids and henna and glitter tattoos.

    What to buy: Simple trinkets made from beads, shells and synthetic pearls make for nice gifts for family and friends.

    What to pay: For P100, you can buy a lot of trinkets. The trick is, of course, to haggle.

    Boracay Books: Books in Boracay

    by sirenna Updated Jul 29, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Run out of reading material for the beach? Don't panic! You can now buy new and used books at the newly opened Boracay bookstore, located in the Plazoleta near boat station 2.
    Reading material is not easy to come by in Boracay, though some resorts and hotels may have a few books you can borrow, and tourists often swap with each other.
    If you are in the neighbourhood, call in to Dave's straw Hat Inn (just south of boat station 3), where you can trade or borrow books, as well as use the internet and have a bite to eat in friendly surroundings.

    Django Leathercrafts: Handmade Leather Bags

    Hard at work

    This is my favourite little shop in the Plazoleta; it is owned and run by a local musician and artist called Diango. You can see him at work creating beautiful handmade leather bags, some of them adorned with puka shells, beads, or bells made by the T'Boli tribe from Mindanao. No two bags are the same so they make lovely gifts (if you can bear to part with them)!

    What to buy: Bags, lamps, sarongs, drums, clothing and other arts and crafts.

    What to pay: Bags start at around P1200

    ??: Prescription drugs

    by seoulgirl Written Jun 4, 2008

    In the drug store you can buy prescription drugs without a prescription. I bought anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory drugs, and others just over the counter. I got sick and needed them. They sell them by the tablet and they come in sheets of tablets, not in a bottle. cheap too.

    What to pay: I can't remember, by the tablet, per tablet.

    D' Talipapa: Souvenirs and etc....

    Spend hours of looking around this island market, just a walkaway from the White Beach stretching to the main road. It has countless of stalls, mini marts, boutiques and shops of clothes and jewelries, handicrafts and souvenirs. Stalls of fruits and vegetables are not rare, barber and tattoo shops and many more. I love those salt water pearl i found here in talipapa. Purchase your souvenirs or little presents for your friends back home. Try to bargain if you will buy more than one unit.
    The unque thing here is: you can buy and choose the ingredients of your fav food and let them cook(restaurant) the way you like it. Mine is just laswa(a sort of vege soup mostly with green ones ).
    Cooking chages: 100 PHP
