Travel Guide : Borawan Island



Located in Padre Burgos , Quezon Province. Four to five hours away from the busy Manila. Borawan used to be Quezon’s best-kept secret but not anymore since it was discovered. The place is blessed with beautiful rock formations, azure water and white sand. There is no special with the sand since it isn't fine just like other popular beach, though it is not black. Don't expect too much about this place. It may not be as fascinating as Boracay, Palawan nor Calaguas, Borawan still have charm of his own. Enough reason for you say that the long drive is worth it. It was the start of Ber months when I went there with Team Yapak, Sep 1 & 2 2018 to be exact. We were the only people who were there that made us enjoy the whole place.



How to commute going to Borawan? 


  1. Take a bus going to Lucena Grand Terminal (3-4 hours) 
  2. Take another bus to Unisan (45-75 minutes). Get off at QCRB Bank in Padre Burgos 
  3. Take a trike to Aplaya (15 minutes). You’ll find tour boats here that will take you to the Island. Boat ride is just 15 mins.
