Boracay Island is one of the best places to visit in the Philippines and is often referred to as one of the best islands in the world by several travel magazines and websites, thanks to its white sand beaches and other natural wonders that travelers can easily include in their Boracay itinerary.

Most travelers spend their time on the main beach, which is White Beach Boracay. It is divided into Stations 1, 2, and 3. Beyond Station 1 is Station 0, which is home to some of the best 5 star hotels in Boracay, including Crimson Boracay

But the island is also known for the Boracay nightlife, with many Boracay bars found along its beaches. Many of these bars can be found in White Beach’s Station 2 and Station 1, as well as Bulabog Beach.

Before the pandemic, there were more Boracay clubs and bars, but some have already closed due to the lockdowns. Some other bars were also closed down because of the Boracay rehabilitation program that closed the island to tourists for six months in 2018.

The island is now open to tourists, but establishments must be more than 30 meters from the beach. Bars and Boracay restaurants must also not allow their patrons to drink and eat along the coast.

Despite these new rules, exploring the nightlife in Boracay is still one of the must-try activities on the island, as you’ll still have several options when it comes to the best bars in Boracay. Let this Boracay nightlife guide help you navigate Boracay at night.

Boracay LaBoracay Beach Party

The Philippines celebrates Labor Day every May 1. Since this is a holiday, many Filipinos use this day, coupled with vacation leaves, to take a quick vacation to destinations like Boracay. Because of this, in the past, Boracay bars and clubs hosted several beach parties to celebrate LaBoracay, a portmanteau of Labor Day and Boracay.

However, since the closure and rehabilitation of the island in 2018, LaBoracay has been canceled and rebranded to Love Boracay in 2019, which celebrated the island’s rehabilitation.

Joining a Boracay PubCrawl was also one of the top things to do in Boracay. A pub crawl is like a moving party in Boracay that hops from one bar to another. Along the way, participants play games and try different kinds of drinks. Unfortunately, like LaBoracay, this activity has also been canceled.

Boracay Fire Dancers

Another thing travelers can enjoy on the island is watching a Boracay fire dance. When night falls, Boracay’s famed fire dancers can be found along the stretch of White Beach, entertaining diners at bars and restaurants in Boracay.

These fire dancers use a pair of poi set alight with fire and move and dance with them, creating a magnificent light show. These dancers usually perform for free, but of course, you may tip them if you enjoyed the performance. You may also book them for special events on the island.

Boracay Party Boat
