APLAYA, is a brand new Restaurant&Cocktail Bar on the beautiful white sand
beach of Boracay. Conveniently located at the end of Station One, next
to Boracay Beach Resort, the most happening place in Boracay!

Aplaya ultimate goal is to move the local entertainment to an
international level.

Our food concept will be Italian with Mediterranean influences. You
can expect delicious Pasta and pizza, but you will be refreshed by our
well seasoned fish, prime cut meat platters, and tasty tapas. All of
which you can enjoy during a breath taking Boracay sunset.

Excellent experience. We order their vegetarian pizza for take out at least once a week, excellent fresh veggies, thin crust slightly crispy. Their pasta is excellent. The new manager has created an excellent atmosphere and great service. Can't beat on the beach dining.

There are quite a few places to eat pizza in Boracay, but my favorite by far is Aplaya for the quality of its pizzas and its atmosphere. Aplaya offers delicious thin-crust pizzas which you can enjoy while lounging on a bean bag chair on the sand, listening to DJs play chill electronic or lounge music, and watching Boracay fire dancers...

This place seriously knows about pizza and pasta. It's a simple restaurant doing what it's meant to do very well. The pasta tastes very fresh and I loved the pizza too. A bill for 2 people usually comes in at around 1500 pesos for drinks and food but it's worth it. You could eat much cheaper pizza but it won't... More

From a local's point of view, Aplaya has finally brought to Boracay a fresh and welcomed approach to Italian cuisine. The place is fun, friendly and it has a nice and positive energy due to its relaxed location and approachable staff. The management is very attentive towards guests satisfaction and towards those little details in the service, that set apart... More

I stayed in Boracay for a week and came here every night to drink and eat. I met my old high school friend Giulia by coincidence and was impressed by her level of professionalism managing the place. The drinks are awesome, the seat (awesome cuscions on the sand) are amazing, the food very good and location good as well. Every... More

Aplaya is very well located right on White Beach. We very much enjoyed drinking cocktails on the beans bags out on the sand and watching the sun set. However we ordered pasta dishes and we were disappointed - they were both very average and we expected more from an Italian restaurant. It was quite expensive too. So we would recommend... More
