I have been to Boracay several times, and it’s always been the White Beach area from Station 2 to Station 1. This time, I ended up on the other side of Boracay because I was looking for a cheap place to stay in for a night.
And I think I just found a treasure.
In the other side of Boracay lies a beach that’s a lot quieter, more relaxed, and is a different picture from its more famous counterpart. I stayed at The Lazy Dog Bed & Breakfast, which was equally charming.
All I needed was a bed for a night while waiting for my friends to arrive the next day. Their dorm bed costs only 575 pesos (all-in) for one night including breakfast. Considering how lovely the place is, it’s totally worth it. You could literally just chill and be lazy in there.
Since this place is on the other side of Boracay, you have to take a tricycle if you want to go to White Beach…or walk the mile if you don’t mind the heat. This area of Boracay reminds me of Vietnam’s small alleys – there’s a lot of hip places popping up in the area such as coffee shops, bars, and more unique hostels. I would have loved to stay longer, with friends this time! I’ll definitely come back and stay here again.
Have you ever been to Boracay? If you haven’t you should! It’s not perfect but it’s one of the best places to escape to! And happy hour is a must!
