Boracay Instagram Diary

The Philippines

Finding my own fun on the island of freaky party-people and cashed-up honeymooners.

A weekend of sunning, boating and imbibing in Boracay isn’t exactly up there with my most trailblazing trips. Chances are if you visit The Philippines, you’ll find yourself in Boracay. Sometimes, though, good can come from embracing the mainstream. Don’t tell me you’ve never eaten pizza by the flickering light of a Kardashians episode, or shaken your rump to a Bieber track.

Since I usually – but not exclusively – prefer the more backwoods destinations, my mates assured me I wouldn’t enjoy Boracay. They denounced the island as being party central, a so-called paradise which paled in comparison to The Philippines’ 7,000 other islands.

In some respects, they were right. The island draws party-goers from all around The Philippines and abroad. However, what I noticed about Boracay is that its fusion of locals and travellers, of lively bars and pristine waters, meant it left room for you to forge your own path.

In the early AM, you can boat off to Ariel’s Point, a wildly fun cliff diving spot. In the late afternoon, you can bike to the other side of the island for a sunset session at the Spider House hideout. And after all your day-time escapades if you’d like to take it easy and make some new friends, there are haunts like the quirky Exit bar to fill your nights.

Here are the Boracay spots I visited, or at least the spots I remembered to take aspirational cool-girl Insta photos at.

    Doesn’t look like a party central from your pictures! So I might enjoy it if I come here some day, as I would really like to visit Philippines some day 🙂 I have heard there is something for everyone, and the one thing I want to do there is diving, I am hearing all the marine life is there and it is much cheaper to dive than in some other places. So, hopefully, some day soon!
