Boracay Island has the distinct honor of being the objective destination of both local and foreign tourists throughout the year.

Nonetheless, Boracay Island remains an irresistibly alluring place to go at any time of the year, in any kind of weather. Boracay Island is in Aklan in Panay. The island itself is about a kilometer or so just off Caticlan and can be reached by a regular boat service. Boracay has all forms of water-activities known to man and a few other surprises as well. We'll just leave most of the details to the numerous websites devoted to Boracay for you to discover.

MBRS Shipping Lines have two boats plying the route from Manila to Caticlan. The ships leave Manila's North Harbor, Pier 8, every Friday, Monday and Wednesday at 5 PM. Arrival time in Caticlan is the next day between 6 and 8 AM. Other shipping companies service the route Manila to Dumaguit, half an hour east from Kalibo. The companies are WG&A and Negros Navigation. You can also fly in through Kalibo in Aklan. Southwest Tours, Star Express and 7107 Island Tours ply the route from Kalibo Airport to Caticlan with air-conditioned buses or coasters. Included in the price is also the boat transfer from Caticlan to one of Boracay's boat stations. Other means of reaching Caticlan are mini-vans, which are a little cheaper, but don't provide boat service to Boracay. The trip takes one to 1.5 hours.
