We super enjoyed our stay in borawan even if its a ahort dah preparation. We stayed in a little private island. Staffs were doing great and made sure for good accomodation. Foods were delicious. Water was so bluish clear that you wish you'd stay there forever❤️

My second time around here. Entrance fee went up. Now it's Php150/person. Huts for leaving your things or for eating is Php850. They have a security guard there that welcomes you to the island. He will collect your fees before you leave. Public toilet and shower is now free. Toilet is stinky, no flush. Shower is fresh water. It's right... More

As a person who loves beach, it's just an average. The beach is clean, limited electricity and there's no enough fun activities there. The store and restaurant there is quiet pricey so bring your own food, drinks and other necessities.

Yes the sand is white but not that powdery but still you will enjoy it as well with the rock formations. Don't forget your camera when climbing the rocks. Enjoy the water though its not that clear. You need to bring tents if you want to stay overnight and plenty chips / food. Don't forget to visit dampalitan and the... More

My workmates and I visited the island during our fieldwork in Quezon. I had known the island even before our fieldwork and was actually excited to experience a day in paradise. I had high expectations since Boracay+Palawan, but it did not come near my expectations. The water was dirty (I recommend the other island/beach instead if you like snorkeling). The... More

We visited the island as one of the company's initiative to promote "work-life balance" advocacy. Though the land travel from Metro Manila to Quezon Province was really a long tiring drive, finding yourself relaxed in an island is worth of it all. Visiting the island is best recommended to people into fun and adventure, people who are fine sleeping in... More

It has a very narrow expanse of sandy beach, with a netted area. Quite pricey entrance fee, plus rental fee for a cottage or a table. Not much to do but wait for the sunset and go back to the mainland.

We visited the island last weekend and was not happy about what I saw when we first arrived there. The netted area of the beach was not clean. I saw a lot of plastics floating on the water near the shoreline. The next morning, everything was cleaned though. Electricity was cut off as early as 9pm but indeed, the moonlit... More

The place is so clean. Beautiful even from the boat and when we docked here, wow!!! We came from Kwebang Lampas and Puting Buhangin before getting here. Island hopping rate for Borawan only is Php800. Island hopping rate for 3 islands is Php1800. Entrance fee is Php150 for day tour. Cottage fee is a little pricey for Php850. Not so... More

I don't know why other reviews of the place seem so negative, but maybe they weren't informed beforehand that the island had limited electricity and that there weren't any resorts so people would just be camping. We were briefed properly about the place so we were prepared for it. We hired a local tour guide named Ron (contact him, he's... More
