Despite being just a few miles from busy Caticlan and Boracay, Buruanga has small town vibe that speaks of life's simple pleasures. Beaches and mountains are comparable to Boracay in beauty but untouched by commercialism.

A beautiful, less traveled by beach area. Experience the Philippines without the tourist headaches! This authentic fishing community is home to another beautiful beach, with much less traffic and local prices!

The place is amazing, the beaches are like in Boracay but no commercialization. A lot of cheap place to stay too. You'll need a bus or van to get to Buruanga town, then rent out a small boat at Japan port to go to Hinugtan...More
