Paradise Garden resort convention center Boracay

Beachfront hotels and resorts on White Beach, Boracay

This is a list of hotels I took photos of after I was dropped at (the beginning of?) station 3 at the end of my island tour of Boracay. I figured since I had to walk all the way back to station 1, where I was staying at Frendz Resort, I might as well do my readers a favour and take photos of all the properties (hotels and restaurants) right from where I was standing till the very end of White Beach.

I believe I was at the start of station 3

You can find a bigger version of this map here. This is by no means is a comprehensive list of every hotel on White Beach, because I walked towards the north end, and not back towards Station 3 and beyond — where one finds cheaper accommodation on White Beach. Still, there are more than 50 hotels listed below, most of which are situated along station 1 and station 2. Station 1 is generally expensive (both hotels and restaurants), while station 2 is around the mid-range prices, and then you have more resorts at the south end of White Beach. The first half of the photos were taken on an underwater camera I had with me, so if the latter half of the photos look better, that’s because those photos were taken on my Canon 7D.

What is beyond this point you can see at the end of this post. Please don’t ask me about costs and “which is a good hotel to stay”. For that there are several other dedicated websites and I have linked to the respective hotel’s websites wherever possible. And for everything else, there’s Google πŸ™‚ Boracay has excellent beaches, but please be aware of the ugly side to its development. I’m not saying don’t go — because you should — but I would suggest giving the natives their fair share of the tourist revenue, or at least be aware of their presence. There are several small bakeries and eateries not facing the beach, but on the main beach road itself. Drop by a few of those if you want more affordable, well, everything.

    hi how many minutes walk from station 3 to station 2 or station 3 to station 1?

    Mithun Divakaran Reply:

    Each ‘station’ is like 5 minutes apart from each other. So a walk from the end of station 1 to the beginning of station 3 would take around 10-15minutes.
