When you're visiting a city for the first time, there's nothing better than getting tips from a local beyond the usual guide book suggestions!
We asked Cebu Pacific Air manager, Ninno Angelo Ong for his insider scoop on Boracay including where to eat, drink and play, along with a local secret and memorable day trip.
Real Coffee & Tea Cafe – Make sure you eat at Real Coffee & Tea Cafe and try the all-day breakfast menu and calamansi (Philippine lime) muffins.
Epic Bar and Restaurant – Epic Bar and Restaurant at Station 2 is Boracay’s hot spot for drinking and partying. Close by is Boom Boom Bar where they play fantastic reggae music.
Puka Beach – Jump on a tricycle or rent a boat and go to Puka Beach, where it is less crowded than other parts of Boracay, and just relax with a great view and crystal-clear waters.
