Boracay Island is located at the north tip of Panay Island in the center of the Philippines.
To enter the Philippines, you can either land first in Manila or Cebu. Then you will need to take an internal flight to reach one of the two airports close to Boracay - Caticlan or Kalibo, both situated on Panay Island. Boracay is too small to have an airport.
We can arrange the internal flight and airport transfer for you.
Caticlan Airport is very close to Boracay Island. It takes just a 10 minutes boat ride from Caticlan Jetty Port to Boracay.
All the airlines allow passengers to take kitebags. Most of the airlines allow only 10 Kgs luggage but you can just pay the excess luggage at the moment of booking for around 2.5 euros a kg.
Check out Cebu air Pacific, Philippines Airlines and Seair.
Bolabog beach is a lagoon exclusively reserved for windsurfing and kitesurfing. That is where you will find our kitesurf center.
To come to us, just ask any tricycle to bring you to Islakite and get yourself ready to arrive in kitesurf paradise!
If he does not know where we are, tell him to bring you to Bolabog beach, passing by Laketown (he will understand). Then once on the beach, turn left and you will find us 30m further.
The Bolabog Lagoon is about 2600 m in length and about 700 m wide. The reef protects the lagoon from the waves so you will find yourself in a safe environment.
For the more experienced ones, there are very small waves to surf on the reef ! Free from swimmers and boat traffic, the shallow waters of the lagoon offer flat surface conditions ideal for kitesurfing lessons.
