Boracay is one of the most famous island in The Philippines (and in the world), many people think about Boracay as a place of endless parties. And yes, the island have great bars and clubs, but Boracay is much more than that, and it’s on the list of the most romantic places in The Philippines.
In Boracay you can find everything: good restaurants, from 5 stars hotels to budget accommodation, water activities, parties and stunning beaches. It is a small island, only 7 km long and less than 1 km wide, but has a lot to offer, especially for people in love.
Boracay is the perfect romantic destination in The Philippines for lively people. The mix of nature, party and relaxing moments is a good match for modern couples. To get the best of Boracay you need to know where to stay and where to go.
White beach is where the action happens, and it’s divided into 3 parts: Station 1 with top hotels. Station 2 is the busiest area with restaurants, malls and groups of tourists. Station 3 is the laidback area, with local bars and small guesthouses. Choose the station that suits you better, and find romantic places to have dinner and sip cocktails by the beach. Another important thing, at 6pm you must rush to the beach, sit and admire the sunset. If you want to spice up the moment bring a bottle of wine to celebrate love!
For more romance book a private boat and go on a ride around the island. Ask the captain to organize lunch in one of the secluded beaches, stop in good places to snorkel and sail until the sunset. I have no doubts you two gonna remember this day forever.
