Is it rare for a person to not be a beach-lover? I, for one, am not a fan of beaches but, I still try to see the beauty in them. And, since we were already in Iloilo, visiting Boracay felt like a MUST. It saves us a lot of costs too instead of visiting each destination one-by-one. This 2019, I share with you my Boracay budget guide.

Following the 6-month closure of Boracay from April 2018, entry to the island has now been limited. All tourists are required to follow the new set of environmental laws established by the government. These rules are to prevent further damage that can be done by tourists and establishments and to better manage the island.

HOW TO GET TO BORACAY

There are several options to get to Boracay, either if you’re coming from Manila or Iloilo. Plus, before you can arrive at Boracay, you will have to ride a boat from Caticlan Jetty Port.

FROM MANILA:
The easiest way is to book a plane ticket to Caticlan or Kalibo. There are always cheap regular fares from Cebu Pacific and Air Asia. Browse through Skyscanner to get the cheapest deals.

» via Caticlan Airport: Closer to Boracay but pricier, although, it saves you more time and energy since it’s nearer to Caticlan Jetty Port.

» via Kalibo Airport: Kalibo airport is 2 hours away from Caticlan Jetty Port but the plane fare is cheaper.

FROM ILOILO:

» via Iloilo City: Going to Boracay from Iloilo city is easy. Just go to Tagbak Terminal in Jaro District and ride a 6-hr bus going directly to Caticlan Jetty Port.

» via Carles (Gigantes Islands): From Carles, Iloilo, take a tricycle/bus going to Balasan Terminal. From Balasan Terminal, transfer rides in Roxas City and Kalibo going to Caticlan Jetty Port.

Check out this comprehensive guide on how to travel between Iloilo, Carles, and Caticlan.

FROM KALIBO:

» OPTION 1: CERES BUS (Php120 + tricycle ride). Take a tricycle from Kalibo Airport to Ceres Bus Liner. The Ceres bus will take you directly to Caticlan Jetty Port. The duration of the bus ride is around 1.5 to 2 hours. So far, this is the cheapest option from Kalibo to the port. (NEXT, FOLLOW #2 AND BELOW ON THE NEXT SECTION).

» OPTION 2: AIRPORT BUS/VAN (Php200). At the airport, ask for a bus or van that will directly take you to Caticlan Jetty Port. (THEN FOLLOW #2 AND BELOW ON THE NEXT SECTION).

» OPTION 3: BOOK A TRANSFER SERVICE (Php490). A bit pricy but it will save you a lot of time from queueing at the port. This transport service is inclusive of the shuttle ride and the boat ticket. Book your ticket here.

FROM CATICLAN:

1. Proceed to Caticlan Jetty Port. From Caticlan Airport, you can either walk (around 7 minutes) or take a Php50-75 tricycle ride to the Jetty Port. The tricycle fare will depend on the number of people riding plus the luggage.

2. Go to the registration area. Look for the tents where the people are queueing. Fill out the form and register your name/s and the accommodation where you will be staying at. A print out of your hotel booking reservation is required so make sure to bring these documents.

3. Pay fees. Pay fees at the counter for your boat ticket, environmental fee, and terminal fee.

Terminal Fee: Php100
Environmental Fee: Php75
Boat Ticket (2 options): Pump boat Php25-30 or Oyster Ferry Php100

4. Enter the port building. Proceed through the security check and wait at the passenger’s waiting area.

5. Find your boat for boarding. Make sure that you board the right boat. You can ask the security guards around and they will assist you. The duration of the boat ride going to Boracay is around 20 minutes.

6. Take a tricycle or an e-trike to your accommodation. Taking a shuttle van is an option but they charge expensive fares.

7. WELCOME TO BORACAY!

WHAT’S NEW IN BORACAY

  1. ONLY 6,000 TOURISTS A DAY ARE ALLOWED – Imagine an influx of people coming, the beach looking like a pool, crowds getting out of hand, etc. Can you still enjoy your hard-earned vacation? Not for me. Too much is not too good.
  2. Souvenir shops and hawkers along the beachfront are now banned.
  3. Making sandcastles are now regulated and must be government approved.
  4. Habal-habal’s are banned now as they cause air and noise pollution in the tiny island. 
  5. Only 150 establishments are allowed to operate.
  6. Beach chairs and umbrellas on the beach? Yea, these are not allowed now. Bring your beach mat with you.
  7. Water-related activities are strictly regulated. There are designated areas for these activities.

RULES FOR TOURISTS

  1. Hotel reservation/s is a requirement before entering Boracay and should be DOT accredited. Make sure you have printed your booking documents.
  2. Drinking alcohol and smoking are strictly prohibited while on the beach. There will be designated areas for smoking and dining by the beach is also prohibited.
  3. Littering is not allowed; harsh fines will be imposed.
  4. The grilling of meat using coals is no longer allowed, especially at the beachfront.
  5. Pets are not allowed on the beach.
  6. Casinos and gambling activities are no longer permitted.
  7. Partying on the beachfront is now banned.
  8. Avoid single-use plastics in Boracay as they have apparent effects on the environment.

BEST PART OF BORACAY — SUNSET!

One word. Mesmerizing.

The best things are FREE! And yes, it’s true. One thing I like about the Philippines — it’s environmentally rich in wonders. Experiencing Boracay’s rose-colored world similar to Wes Anderson’s movies is very indescribable.

This sunset in Boracay is so far the best one I have seen in my life. The colors were very mesmerizing that it instantly turns on my endorphins. I’m glad to be one of the chosen to see this wonderful view before we leave the next day to Manila. I wish it lasted longer.

Just look at that big ball of light

WHAT I DON’T LIKE IN BORACAY

  1. Those touts can get annoying. I know it’s not the actual island’s fault, but, walking along the beach and at every corner, people are asking you to get a tour with them. The first day is okay, but after a while, it gets annoying. It feels rude to just ignore them but ngh! I hope the government can do something about this. I hope they can be in just one place altogether.
  2. Pricey foods. Prices are exaggerated, especially at the beachfront! Imagine eating out every day with dishes ranging from Php300-500 per dish. The usual price of a large Chatime Pearl Milktea is Php110, but it’s Php10 higher. They don’t even have the regular size so you’re forced to buy a large drink. Just plain foolish! I read one blog recently and the writer said, foods in Boracay are expensive but of low-quality. I don’t have the experience to comment on this ’cause the average prices of the restaurants are just crazy so I didn’t try them. Eating Andok’s every day is boring…it’s the cheapest fast food restaurant at the beachfront though BUT a big lifesaver.
  3. Establishments are too near the beachfront. I know food stalls have been banned and all but I feel the big establishments are still too near the beachfront. Considering the foot traffic in the area, they need to widen the area more. They should follow how the Kuta beach in Bali was laid out. All establishments are across the road and the beach area is solely for relaxing and swimming. 

ACTIVITIES IN BORACAY

The activities listed here are optional only and you can choose whether to book them online or on-site. There are a lot of touts along the beach and you won’t miss them as some will even follow you around. Of course, you can haggle for a lower price but if you want all your activities laid out before landing in Boracay, booking online is better but at a fixed price.

ILOILO, GIGANTES, AND BORACAY TRIP IN ONE GO?

Gigantes Islands!!

Yes, it’s possible to visit all three at once although it’s a bit exhausting especially when you have luggage with you. If you want a 3-in-1 trip then here are some helpful guides:

•  ILOILO: Gigantes Island Day Tour with ITINERARY | ₱2,900 Budget Guide

FAQs

≡ Can I use credit cards and ATM’s? Credit cards are accepted in some establishments but it is still better to bring enough cash with you. There are also ATM machines on the island where you can withdraw but with an extra charge.\\\\

≡ Can I use drones on the island? NO — if you do not have a government permit. Getting your drone permit is pricy and on top of that, the registration process can be a hassle. The price for using a drone is around Php1,600. I don’t have a drone and I have not yet experienced this so I can’t comment more about it. BUT. Read this article for more information on how to register the use of your drone in Boracay.

≡ What are the new rules and regulations in Boracay? Please see the section above this post talking about what’s new in Boracay and the tourist rules and regulations that was recently implemented by the government.

≡ Is it pricey in Boracay? Yes and maybe no. As a famous tourist spot destination, the establishments in Boracay charges more than the usual. Restaurants at the beachfront are way too over-priced and the cheapest fast food restaurant so far is Andok’s. Convenience stores and Jollibee also differ in price compared to their normal prices in Manila. (it’s like every dish Php10 higher than the usual).

≡ Is it better to book our activities online or haggle on-site? Booking online or on-site has its own pros and cons.

If booking on-site, you can haggle for lower prices but you will be unsure of the quality of the services that they will provide. This is a cheaper option but a bit of a gamble. Make sure that you can find a reliable seller.

And, if booking online, you can read the reviews online in Klook and decide whether to take the activity or not. Booking online is hassle-free that once you arrive at the island, you don’t have to think about anything. BUT, the prices are fixed.

THINGS TO KNOW

   
How to get to the Boracay?
To get to Boracay, book your ticket to Caticlan OR Kalibo airport. Airfares going to Caticlan may be pricey but with Skyscanner, you can get the cheapest regular airfare.
 
 
Do you need a Visa?
Depending on your nationality, you may or may not need to apply for a Philippine Visa. I recommend checking out this website. It will also show you the requirements if you need to apply for one.
Language/s Spoken
Fluent English is widely spoken in Boracay, heck, barkers can even speak multiple languages like Korean, Japanese, Chinese, etc. Even we were shocked that they can converse with different nationalities with ease.
Local Currency
 In the Philippines, our currency is called Philippine Peso (PHP, ₱)
Getting Around
Habal-habal's are now prohibited so, e-trikes and tricycles are now the main mode of transportation when traveling around the island.
