Boracay Island in the Philippines reminded me of Thailand fifteen years ago. Except for the famous White Beach – that was a little too much like Hat Rin on a full moon.
Boracay Island has attracted the backpacker crowd over the years. And who can blame them? It has a reputation for being absolutely gorgeous – and having been, I can vouch it certainly lives up to that.
It has pristine, white sand beaches, the clearest water ever, an abundance of thriving marine life, and some of the friendliest locals you’ll ever meet.
But what is it like if you’re not a backpacker? Is Boracay a great place for kids? You bet! Although, your list of attractions may be slightly different.

Boracay has gained a reputation for being a backpacker’s playground, with Boracay pub crawls and fire dancers on the beach – a similar vibe to the full moon parties in the South of Thailand.

White Beach is still worth a visit, but when traveling to Boracay with kids, I recommend staying elsewhere.
It definitely made our list of things to do on Boracay Island with kids, but I find the other beaches on Boracay Island are just as good, if not better.
If you’re a foodie, beware that the Philippines is not as good as Thailand (in my opinion), but the people are just as friendly, the lifestyle super chilled, the beaches some of the best in the world, it’s relatively cheap, and there are plenty of things to do in Boracay with kids.
For that reason, I do think Boracay is worth visiting.

1. Visit Punta Bunga Beach
Punta Bunga Bach has pristine powdery white sand and turquoise waters and no crowds. It was our pick of Boracay Beaches and one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve seen in the world.
I’m not sure if you can get access otherwise, but it’s worth a try because it is one of the best things to do in Boracay.
