The popularity of this island means that booking hotel accommodation in advance is essential to ensure that you have somewhere to stay when you arrive

Visitors are being encouraged to visit the famous bat caves in Barangay Yapak on Boracay Island. This area is home to a particular breed of bat which has acquired the name of the Flying Fox. The name has come about due to the similar features that the bats share with the fox and visitors are being encouraged to the area due to the rarity of the animals. There is an ongoing battle between conservationists and poachers and it may be the last chance to see them. Visitors can come all year round and the locals are happy to act as tour guides for a small fee. A small donation is also requested for the owners of the land.

Boracay is part of the Philippines and until a few years ago was a well guarded secret. It is now popular with tourists due to its excellent beaches and is easily reached from the rest of the Philippine Islands by sea and air. Most people travelling on the island itself will make use of a motor tricycle or just walk.

Lek Boonlert, the Head of Marketing at DirectRooms says, “The popularity of this island means that booking hotel accommodation in advance is essential to ensure that you have somewhere to stay when you arrive.” When looking for a hotel Boracay has a wide variety available, from basic accommodation for the many backpackers that visit to more luxurious accommodation for those on a budget which stretches a little further. Hotel costs change according to the season.
