Whether you’re a family on vacation, a couple seeking relaxation, or a group of friends looking for some beach-and-party fun, Boracay is one of the hottest places to be.

1. Jonah’s Fruit Shake

A post shared by Wendy Tien (@tien1101) on

No Boracay trip is complete without Jonah’s Fruit Shake! This restaurant had humble beginnings as a simple fresh fruit shake store, but has gained well-deserved popularity over the years for its unique take on the staple fresh fruit shake by the beach — and not to mention, their creativity in packaging their shakes in water bottles with straws, so you can take the shake around with you without it spilling. This chill café is located in Station 1 and shakes start at 75 PHP (1.50 USD).
