It’s the most crowded Station in Boracay Island. You can eat in restaurants for 150-300 PHP per meal. You can find accommodation for 500 PHP in a dorm or around 1500 PHP a private room good, already good for two people. If you like nightlife, this is your choice. You will find bars, restaurants and shops. The beach is so beautiful but a little bit crowded. We stayed at Seabird International Resort, a quiet place that’s less than one minute away to White Beach. It’s very close to White Beach! Bulabog Beach is 10 minutes walking distance away from Station 2 and it’s great for the sunrise. D Mall is the most crowded place in Station 2 which can be busy anytime. Station 2 is the favorite place for people to watch the sunset in White Beach.

Station 2 is full of people but the beach area isn’t so crowded compared to bars and restaurants since some people prefer to enjoy the views instead of sunbathing and swimming.

Our recommendation is Seabird International Resort which is located just a few meters from the beach. The location is quiet so you won’t believe that it’s just one minute walking distance away from the beach, bars and restaurants. They offer yoga classes in the morning, Filipino breakfast and prices are affordable!

Station 1 in Boracay Island

The best place to enjoy the sunset with the sailing boats on the water, in our opinion, just across the grotto in Station 1. It’s so calm and relaxing! You will find great bars and restaurants where you can have dinner or have a drink for an affordable price.  There are luxury resorts and hotels where you will have all the comfort that you need. Our choices in Station 1 were Discovery Shores Boracay with the best view of the White Beach and Hampstead Boutique Hotel where you can enjoy the comfort of a pool villa which is just a few minutes walking distance away from White Beach in a very calm area. At the end of Station 1, it is ideal for swimming in White Beach. Also accessible going to Puka Beach, Diniwid Beach and Ilig Illigan Beach which are super recommended apart from White Beach.

There’s a few options in Boracay from sleeping on a budget in Station 3, enjoying nightlife in Station 2 and indulging the comfort at the beach in Station 1. From Station 3 to Station 1, it can be 30 minutes walking distance. If you decide going by tricycle, traffic can be crazy but if you shared a tricycle, it’s as cheap as 20 PHP per person.

Our recommendation for you is to visit all of them. We loved enjoying the beach at Station 1, so quiet and beautiful and it’s the perfect station if you want to reward yourself with a luxury stay. Also, in Station 3, it’s so peaceful and we loved the nature in that part of White Beach. It’s great for travelers on a budget. Station 2, on the other hand, is what we loved during the night to enjoy the atmosphere. It’s full of tourists, locals and foreigners. It’s the best place if you want to stay in the center of everything.

Now after reading this blog post, which one do you think you’ll enjoy the most? The comfort and luxury in Station 1, the crowded and full of life vibes in Station 2, or the relaxing atmosphere and better prices in Station 3?
