About
APLAYA, 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. We serve quality Italian food, with most of the imported food. You can expect delicious Pasta and pizza, but you will be refreshed by our well seasoned fish, prime cut meat platters. All of which you can enjoy during a breath taking Boracay sunset with great music.

Great little spot on the beach. Good music, great food, helpful staff. Perfect place to grab a few cold San Miguels and watch the sunset.

One of the best Shisha places I’ve visited. The music is good, friendly staff and great drinks. It’s quiet popular and can be hard to get a table unless you reserve in advance. Shisha has 3 based: water, alcohol or milk (tempted to try but...More

Located on the beach walk close to station 2. Proper Italian pizza oven makes very good pizza. Seafood soup was fresh. Recommended. We will head back for dinner later.

Aplaya in Boracay serves healthy italian food that would suffice your craving but not risk your health. They have great pizzas, sandwiches, and soups among others. The restaurant is located just in front of the white beach.

We found this place difficult to call an authentic Italian restaurant as it only has a few types of pasta, spaghetti, penne and risotto. We were hoping for lasagne or cannelloni but they didn’t have any bolognese dishes at all. We ended up going for...More

Pizza is amazing here, not the best we had in the Philippines but definitely worth a visit. Portion sizes are huge. The atmosphere was more of a bar rather than a restaurant. So if that’s what you’re looking for then this place is great!

Ambassador is good hotel but it's far little bit maybe 10 min (walking in the beach) , if you want good location take hotel in station 2 because all the action in station 2 🎷🎉
