Boracay Island is located in the northwest of Panay in the Western Visayas Region just 200 miles south of Manila. The island's beach front, resorts, and great food choices make it one of the most sought after key beach destinations in the Philippines.

The best way to get to Boracay Island is by plane. You have several options for connecting flights that go from either Manila or Cebu to Caticlan or Kalibo. Anyone with a spirit of adventure might enjoy going by land from Cebu to Negros to Iloilo and, finally, to Caticlan.

Boracay Island is divided into three "stations" which used to be actual boat stations in its earlier days. Station 2 is the middle section where tourists will find opportunities to get to know other visitors to the island. Station 3 on the other hand is where the cheapest lodges and inns are located. Get to Station 1 if you are looking for a place of solitude and soul searching. The latter is where the most expensive resorts can be found.

Boracay's public market, D'Talipapa, can be found in Station 3. You will certainly find some of the freshest seafood and tropical fruits at this place. You will be impressed, most of all, with the friendliness and attentiveness of the people of Boracay Island.

Depending on your purpose and duration of stay, you may need a Philippine Visa. Whatever the reason, you'll certainly want to take in the sights and sounds of this fascinating archipelago. There is so much to see both in the major cities such as Manila and in the interior. Plan ahead and schedule your Philippine tours to guarantee you get to see and do everything you want to.
