Shopping in Boracay
Boracay’s main tourism area, White Beach is 4 kms long and is divided into three stations – station 1, 2 and 3. The stations were named after boat stations back in the day when boats still docked on the beach. I loved to stroll along White beach and checking out the countless small shops selling everything from beachwear, handmade bracelets and necklaces to t-shirts and soaps. The swimwear’s shop Nothing but H2O is a beautiful shop with great interior and designs. The best part is that it is a Philippine brand. I love to find new purchases locally when I’m abroad. The brand offers high quality swim and lounge wear for all ages. I found a two piece bikini with matching cover up cardigan. Further down the alley is owner PJ Aranador’s shop Nautilus. He is a lifestyle designer and focuses on three aspects: wellbeing, resort and lifestyle. The store has a crafty hippie feel with loads of merchandise ranges from handmade and pure vegan seaweed soap and even alpaca soap to coconut massage oil. I couldn’t help myself purchasing loads of soaps, creams and massage oils.I have now learned that the coconut soap with Philippines virgin coconut oil is a natural way to keep my skin moisturized.
