Famous for its powdery white sand and crystal waters, it is a popular tourist destination especially during the summer and December holidays.
The weather on the island is mostly sunny from March until early June with temperatures ranging from 82-100°F (28-38°C). Rains and typhoons can begin from July lasting until early September. During storms temperature can drop to 68°F (20°C).
Filipino and English is widely spoken and understood. Apart from this the local dialect of Aklanon is also spoken.
Travel to the resort is done via airplane to either Kalibo or Caticlan. Flight time is about 45 mins (from Manila). From Kalibo, a 90-minute road trip needs to be taken which will take you to the shores of Caticlan. Once there, a 5 minute ride on the resort’s private boat takes you to the rear of the island, where you will be picked up in a private car to take you to Boracay Regency.
