The Best Cottages in Boracay Island, Philippines

The Best Cottages in Boracay Island Featured Photo

Upon its reopening after several months of lockdowns due to safety health protocols, Boracay is once again flocked by tourists who missed its famed white-sand beaches. With more lenient guidelines, more and more hotels and resorts are now accepting guests.

While this is generally good, there are others (like me) who still prefer lesser crowds for the safety of their families. If you’re one of us, then don’t worry. You can skip the hotel scene and stay in a homey and private cottage. 

That is why in this article, I’ll share with you the best and safest cottages on the island for your next beach getaway. 

All vacation rentals on this list adhere to the government’s health regulations and are accredited by the Philippine Department of Tourism (DOT) to operate.

I will also share with you the cottages’ addresses, websites, and social media pages for easier comparison.

3. Mabuhay Beach House: Best for Quiet Getaways

Strategically positioned in the far end of Station 3, the most peaceful area in Boracay, Mabuhay Beach House is the perfect quiet beach getaway.
