People always ask me why I love Boracay Station 1 so much. Even when I was going to Boracay as a kid, I would not necessarily have accommodations in the Station 1 area, yet I would walk the distance just to plop down on the finest white sand that the island has to offer. Such a spot can definitely be found in Station 1. It was always a remote and private area for me, away from the busy, action-packed vicinity of the island, a place where I could appreciate Boracay for all its beauty – powdery white sand, crystal clear blue waters, swaying coconut trees, the works.
One tends to think that Station 1 is an area for the more upscale and expensive resorts. This is true somewhat, as some of the resorts located here are definitely on the pricey side, but the amenities and service provided are definitely worth it! You may be surprised to know , however, that there are some smaller beach front resorts that are quite affordable, especially considering the fact that they are located right next to some of the big named resorts.

Although Station 2 is better known for restaurants and bars, there are actually quite a few in Station 1 as well. For restaurants you can choose among the many resorts which serve first class food, such as Fridays Boracay, Two Seasons Boracay, and Waling Waling. Kasbah is another one of my favorites. This is a hidden gem of a restaurant which serves authentic Moroccan dishes. Then of course there is Jonah’s Fruit Shake & Snack Bar, one of the must-visit restaurants for any tourist looking for thirst quenching drinks.
Among the bars in Station 1 you have the ever so classic Cocomangas which has been around for quite a while now yet remains as popular as can be, thanks to its’ famous 15 Shooters. You also have your pick of the newer bars in that area. The party lasts all night long at either Guilly’s Island or Club Paraw which play a mix of hip hop and house music. If you just want to sit back and relax in the cozy set up of an air-conditioned bar, then Ariel’s House is the place to be. If having sunset drinks while listening to the classic tunes of the 70’s and 80’s is your thing, Heather’s by the Sea is the top choice. There is something for everybody in Station 1, and if you are staying in this area, you don’t have to venture far to find what you are looking for.
