Flying Solo in Boracay Island

(Are you ready to see the Instagrammable spots in Boracay? But first, read this!)

Boracay Island was hailed as one of the world’s most beautiful islands, and I could attest that every corner of the island is indeed Instagram-worthy. In fact, the Philippine government closed down the island for around 6 months to be rehabilitated, and it was indeed a good decision since the island turned out to be so much better. Boracay Island could give you the serenity that you need with its beautiful beach areas.

Boracay used to be a popular beach party destination (read: #Laboracay), but when it was reopened to tourists, activities like beach parties were already banned in the entire island. Some locals would say it’s now less lively and they’re a little frustrated with the change, but hey, who knows it might be for the better.

I had the opportunity to spend a couple of days in the island for my birthday (in my case, I always plan excursions like these on my birthday week). While during the time I went there Boracay literally just opened up again, I am assuming there are already more spots to see by now. Despite that, I still enjoyed my stay in the island. With that, please allow me to share a couple of Instagrammable spots in Boracay Island that I was able to visit:

Halal Restaurants in Boracay
Are there halal restaurants in Boracay?

Boracay Island? Definitely the most beautiful island in the world that travelers from all parts of the world desire to go to. However, I know for a fact that the Philippines, despite having a significant number of Muslim citizens, lacks a comprehensive information on halal restaurants (whether in Manila, Boracay, Cebu, among others). I have many Muslim friends inside and outside the Philippines, and for their benefit (and for every Muslim traveler’s benefit), I did a research and compiled this list of 11 halal restaurants in Boracay Island*. I wish I was able to eat on these restaurants and review them during my stay there. But I can always go back to do it, right?

*This list is solely based on online research. So if you want to add something to this list and perhaps suggest corrections, feel free to shoot me a message at my Instagram (instagram.com/wheressherlyn) or at email address sherlynmaehernandez@gmail.com.
