The New Boracay Island, Changes and Where to Night Life Party?

by - 6:22 AM

Last weekend, we had a chill year-ender travel to Boracay Island together with my "Laagan" officemates. After eight months from closure, the new Boracay has a lot of changes that we noticed and netizens reported on social media and generally, they are so proud of the outcome! Do you want to know what are the changes we noticed when we visited the beautiful island?

Here Are The Changes We Noticed When We Visited The New Boracay!

1. Hostel/Hotel Reference During Check-in

Going to our bus for Manila-Caticlan trip!
When we did our flight check-in in Cebu Pacific, the staff asked us a reference for our Hostel/Hotel reservation before they finally printed our boarding pass. You may show your email communication with the Hostel/Hotel or if they have the confirmation receipt, much better!

2. Hostel/Hotel Reference Before buying Tickets in the Jetty Port.

This is the same as mentioned in number 1, there's a table in Jetty Port entrance that will require all passengers or tourists to fall in line and present their hotel/hostel reservation. The staff will search and confirm if the said hostel/hotel is accredited. After which, you will get that approval mark in your hand! (wink) Then you can proceed in buying the terminal fee (PHP 100), environmental fee (PHP 75) and pump boat fare (PHP 25).

3. No Using of Straw in Restaurants and Fast Food chains.

Just for testing purposes, we tried asking for straw in McDonald's and to be fair with the staff, they really urged us not to use a straw. I love this new and little way of supporting our environment!

4. Less Noise Pollution during Night hours.

What I noticed when the time ticked at 11:00 PM, some beachfront bars lowered down their music and we can actually notice that the beachfront area from stations 1 to 4 are bare - nobody is partying in front of the beach.

Since there's no nightlife in beachfront, we decided to visit Galaxy. And that would be our new and last time to party there. There's no entrance fee but the table is worth 1k, 2k and so on. Not to mention the bacardi gold is worth PHP 3,000 - triple price from the original price of PHP 750!

5. Wider Seashore

A lot of establishments were moved backward which gives a wider version of Boracay's white sand. Just lovely!

6. Cleaner White Powdery Sand

Due to the above actions, we can now enjoy a cleaner, white and powdery sand of Boracay. You can chill and just sit and watch for the best Sunset in the Philippines.

7. No more tents, tables, and chairs set up in front of establishments near the beachfront. 

This is one of the reasons that you can enjoy a wider seashore!

8. No More Filamentous Green Algae!

Yes! Remember those green algae in the seashore? You won't miss them as the beach shores are very clean and worth the swim. Take a dip!

9. There are establishments which are closed by the Government

I could say some establishments which are closed but to be fair to them, they might need to process their documents for them to be functional soon. Hoping for the best!

10. Road Widening and Building of Sidewalk 

One of the major changes is the road repair and widening. Also, a nice and clean sidewalk is currently being built with bricks. I will come back to Boracay soon!

SPECIAL! Here are our sunset shots!!! Wooots!
