Better shopping and prices than D'Mall, but not the best yet. We came here twice, the second time it had just finished raining, and the smell of cat urine made it difficult to stay long. The place is over-run with stray cats (whereas the rest of the island is mostly stray dogs). There is no grass or sand, it's all... More

This is a culinary must do in Boracay, but you need to bargain well. Selection of restaurants you can dine at, who can cook your purchased ingredients Not the most hygienic (cats roam beneath the tables); but satisfying nonetheless

Compared to d'mall this is the place to go for souveniours. Whether it is trinkets, shirts, hats or just about anything else you will find the prices much better and you can barter with the merchants. Here you will find more of the local people compared to d'mall where it is more larger more expensive shops. There are many small... More

you can find a lot of stalls here selling cheaper souvenirs and shirts than the one on dmall. as always, haggle for the best price. There are also a lot of restaurants here serving seafoods but the one we tried was a little bit of a disappointment since it's not that fresh anymore.

Found a shop selling keychains with free names, but the designs here were much nicer than those at D'Mall. Even though they were selling at 4 for 100 pesos. D'Mall sold it at 8 for 100 pesos. Not too sure if it was overcharged, but it was definitely worth the money for a beautiful personalized keychain for my friends. :)... More

My advise is to ask around and bargain before committing as they will charge ridiculously high prices if you are a tourist. Lucky for me, I have a local guide with me and he whispered the market rate of the lobsters to me. It was my birthday and my girlfriend was so eager to get me a huge lobster, a... More

The seafood are live and fresh, but please, always bargain, anywhere in Boracay. The wet market is small, you purchase them from one stall you like (they're almost the same, just find someone you like purchasing from or just find the seafood that looks good to you) and bargain and then purchase them and bring to the cook nearby!

The first day I went there I bought the seafood from the market myself. I obviously got chopped. I read a blog recommending stall #29 for cooking service. No regret ! I went back the next day and this time I asked a waiter named Prince to help me buy the seafood and is super cheap ! So be smart... More
