Aklan Boracay 120
Ilig-iligan Beach is possibly the remotest beach in Boracay Island, and can only be accessed through motorbike, a short hike, or by chartering a tricycle (P250/hour). The beach stretches almost a kilometer of grainy, white sand, and faces a few islets. Unlike White Beach and Bulabog Beach, Ilig-iligan Beach is underdeveloped and less crowded, with only two resorts and a small restaurant. At the northern end of the beach are a forest and some rock formations. Farther off shore, visitors will find the Bat Caves with the help of a local guide (approx. P300 guide fee). Visiting the caves, however, may not be a rewarding experience. It requires a steep descent where rugged footwear is recommended. The caves reek of guano and are home to hundreds of fruit bats, flying foxes, and mosquitoes. Be sure to use insect repellant and bring a flashlight when visiting the area.
Open: Open everyday, 24 hours.
Address: Brgy. Yapak, Boracay, Aklan

Nearby attractions

Mt. Luho Viewpoint
Attraction
1.17 km away

At 100 meters above sea level, Mt. Luho Viewpoint is the highest point in Boracay. Built on this peak is a small zoo housing a few mammal and avian species such as monkeys, bearcats, lesser frigatebirds, brahminy kites, and chinese chickens. The highlights of this destination, however, are its 200-meter zipline (P700/head) and its viewdeck. Standing on bamboo stilts, Mt. Luho's viewdeck offers a 360-degree view of islands Boracay, Carabao, Crystal Cove, and Panay. The deck also overlooks Bulabog Beach, the private beaches of Fairways and Bluewater Newcoast, and the nearby 180-hectare golf course. In addition, Mt. Luho Viewdeck is one of the optional stopovers when riding an all-terrain vehicle in Barangay Yapak.

Puka Beach
Attraction
1.66 km away

Puka Beach is an outcry from Boracay's famous White Beach. Unlike the restaurant, bar, and hotel-studded White Beach, Puka Beach is uninhabited, with only two establishments at one end. The rest of the 800-meter beach is laid-back and raw, lined with a dense forest and some coconut trees. But unlike the impressive powdery white sand and flatness of White Beach, Puka Beach has coarse sand and plunges deeply, reaching up to the waist after only a few meters from the shore. Puka Beach gets its name from puka shells, which are abundant in the area. Before the island became popular for its White Beach, Boracay was first known for its puka shells. The shells were strung into jewelry and decorative items, and reached as far as western countries. Today, such items are still sold among the stalls at the beach entrance. While it is part of the island hopping destinations in Boracay, Puka Beach is best visited for an entire lazy afternoon until sundown. Apart from viewing the sunset, travelers can also catch sightings of fruit bats and the endangered Giant Golden-Crowned Flying Fox, a huge bat endemic to the Philippines. Meanwhile, across Puka Beach lies Carabao Island, yet another paradise island in the Philippines.

Boracay Terraces Viewdeck
Attraction
1.76 km away

Boracay Terraces Viewdeck offers a unique perspective to Boracay's White Beach and the mainland Panay. Marked by a gigantic red cross, the viewdeck is about four-storeys high, and sits on top of a cliff behind Boracay Terraces Resort. It is best visited during sunset, when the entire White Beach is tinged with an orange glow. The viewdeck itself is a grave site to the ashes of Steve Tajanlangit, owner of the resort who died in 2011. The ashes are placed inside a small cemented vault at the foot of the large cross, and enclosed in a quiet forest. To reach the viewdeck, visitors would have to trek on rugged terrain for about 10 minutes. During rainy days, however, the trail turns muddy and slippery.
