Located in Barangay Lipata, Padre Burgos, Quezon, overlooking Tayabas Bay is a long stretch of white sand beach with lush mountains and its own rock cliff formations. Right now it is divided into 3 beach stations where you can enjoy all of what it has to offer - sun, sand and swim to your heart's content.

You can set up camp at station 1 and 2. Station 3 have beach houses and hotel like accomodations now. Even glamping can be made upon request. It also has a restaurant but you need to be patient as they are still on soft opening.

Our group stayed at Station 3 on a two bedroom beach front house. With aircon, 1 bath and a separate toilet. It is spacious and can comfortably fit 5-7 pax.

Summer time also means jellyfish season. We found a lot around the waters of Borawan. It's good that they have a netted area for swimming on each station.

You can ask a local to accompany you going up the mountain. The view atop is so worth it. Station 2 and 3 is divided by rock cliff formations. You need to cross that to go over the other or if it's low tide you can also go by the water but with the jellyfish...128513. We'd rather trek. it's fairly easy, just be careful 128522. No guide needed.

Though the sand is not powdery like Boracay and the limestone cliffs not as grand as Palawan, a hint of both makes this place uniquely beautiful.

Our boat just went around the island because even from a far, you can tell that it's just a normal island. Plus the fact that you have to pay an entrance fee and like its neighboring island, you have to pay for everything.

This could be a good option if you want a quick getaway from the metro. Rock formations could be a good venue for photo op. But if you wish to explore more of Padre Burgo's islands - visit Kwebang Lagpas. It has the finest sand out of the 3 islands we set our feet upon (Dampalitan, Borawan and Kwebang Lagpas). Island hopping could be done at least 6 hours. But if you want more adventure - tents are available in 3 islands mentioned. Suggest you stay in Dampalitan where we stayed.

I visited Borawan Island with my friend Shine last weekend to prove that we can spend our weekend out of town with P1,000 budget! And we succeeded!
Note: Food not included

The place is quite crowded during that time. It is best to be visited by groups - family/friends. Boat rental from Basiao Port is P800 round trip. We had to wait for a passenger boat to bring us to the island since we are on a tight budget.

Bring tent because tent rental is P500 and overnight stay is P120/pax. If you have a tent with you, you'll only pay P200 for the space.

Last stop.

Borawan Island derived its name from the two famous beaches in the Philippines. Bora for Boracay and Wan for Palawan. haha pede na po ba ang konti history ko looloo wiki Mr. Eric N. hehe Peace. 128522 Idol lang po kita.

We did not enjoy much of the Island coz napasarap na kami magswim sa Puting Buhangin. But the place is really nice. It is more of a resort na. They have cute cottages and hindi nakakatakot coz may guard sa Island. The place is small lang.

We don't have time to swim kasi medyo hapon na so we just went here to take a shower and get dressed. Sayang if we only have time pa.

May only complain is that parang lahat hereay bayad. haha Pag bumaba ka sa bangka they will ask you to pay the entrance fee which is 80 pesos then may bayad ang CR na 20 Pesos. But malinid naman ang CR and well maintained.

BTW, every island has an entrance fee ranging from 30-80 pesos. Ok lang naman kasi super ganda ng place and they really preserve the beauty of the place.

This is really an unforgettable experience. It made me realize that life is really beautiful (teary eye 128514 haha)
