One of the challenging things in Boracay is this, where to stay near White Beach that is budget friendly? Luckily, there are two small alleys less than a hundred meters from D’Mall and a couple of meters from Boracay Uptown, at the beach front of Station 2 that are connected with each other at the back. It’s easy to reach, just look for Real Coffee, where the famous calamansi muffin is served. Find the narrow alley before (you’ll find Shena’s) and after it (after a dive shop) and that’s it.
There is a series of structures along this narrow path that offers budget friendly accommodations. Inns like Tan’s Guesthouse, Taj and another one, or two have annex buildings found at the other side. Do check them out.
NOTE: Rates for low season, different room types can range from P1000 (standard) to P6000 (penthouse). High season can range from P1500 to P7500, standard to penthouse room types. Family rooms (4-5 pax) usually at P3000 to P4000, respectively, (checked December 2014). Rates can change and this is just for reference purposes.
