Return to Paradise: Top 5 Stays in the New Boracay for Every Type of Traveler

by Danna Peña
December 19, 2018

Boracay 2.0 is here.

After 6 months of rehabilitation, one of the world’s best beaches has finally allowed tourists to enter its vicinity once again—but this time, more responsibly. Only a certain number of tourists are permitted to enter the island at any given time while hotels and resorts undergo stricter accreditation processes, which means that travelers will be able to enjoy Boracay more exclusively and consciously.

With that in mind, along with the promises of a new year, the desire for that perfect tropical getaway burns. No matter how many times you’ve visited Boracay, its newly spotless White Beach and entrancingly clear waters—green sticky algae excluded—beckon more than ever. A beach paradise bursting with restaurants, a vibrant party scene, and endless beach activities, Boracay remains to be the perfect escape for all walks of life, whether you’re taking a break from routine or simply craving some fun under the sun.

Want to make your return to the island perfect with a hassle-free stay? We round up the best accommodations for the beach-going, respite-seeking explorer in you, all of which have made it to Boracay Inter-Agency Task Force’s accredited list of hotels and resorts. From luxury stays to budget-friendly options, these guest favorites will fulfill every kind of traveler’s dream Boracay getaway.
