Our local hangout. On the beachfront, amazing views, good breakfast, great cocktails! Our favorite place for happy hour. Their bartenders know how to make great margaritas and it's half price during happy hour, from 12:00noon - 6:00pm. Right on the beachfront so you can enjoy a swim in between drinks.

Authentic Spanish food and great ambiance. Go for paella and sangria. Live music Thursdays to Sundays. They also have a deli where you can get the best bread on the island.

Our favorite brunch spot. Inventive menu for when you want something a little different from the usual Filipino or American breakfast. Amazing pancakes but be warned, servings are very big so we highly recommend sharing.

Nigi Nigi is a fun place to go and watch live music. They have a band every night from 8:30-11:00 pm. It's also a sports bar for those that can't miss out on thier favorite game. Pretty good pub food as well.

Neighborhoods
Angol in Station 3 is where the charm of Boracay still lives on. It is the quiet end of the beach and in the late afternoon or weekends you will find lots of local kids playing on the beach. This is our neighboorhood and we love it!

Conseils aux voyageurs

Que faut-il apporter ?
Pack lightly - the vibe in Boracay is very informal
What to bring: lightweight dresses, shorts and T-shirts a few swimmers flip flops, the only footwear you will need your favourite toiletries & any medication you are taking hat & sunnies (it’s very glary in the water so the ones you don’t mind getting wet would be good) a sarong is versatile and handy to have (we provide beach towels) a Kindle, download books before you get here a small portable speaker. We usually travel with a Bose portable speaker, highly recommend for overseas guests, an adaptor for your devices. Laundry service is cheap and generally available the next day.
Manières d'économiser
Mobile phone - getting local SIM and data
Avoid roaming charges and get a prepaid SIM at the airport. We use Globe. I suggest buying a 500 peso load. Then ask them to enrol you to this promo - GOSAKTO140. This will give you local calls to Globe users, text to any network and 4GB of data for 7 days. Cost 140 pesos, renewable if you are staying <7 days. Lots of promos on offer, took us months to work out the best one. DON’T go for any of the promos they advertise at the airport. It’s VERY expensive. Extra credit is handy in case you need to call a landline or a different network.

Download before you leave home
Whist we provide WIFI we’ve found internet access on the island generally slow and frustrating. So we recommend that you download your movies, books and anything you need from the cloud before you get here.
Se déplacer dans les environs
Cash
A lot of the smaller shops and restaurants are cash only so will need to carry cash around. Big hotels and restaurants take credit card. Suggest withdrawing money at the airport. ATMs generally charge 250 pesos for each withdrawal using an international card and in most cases 10,000 pesos is the max you can withdraw each transaction. You can do multiple transactions but each one will cost 250 pesos. There are ATMs on the island , the nearest one is located inside Villa Caemilla, short walk from the apartment.
