Queer Boracay, Philippines – Gay Star News

queer Boracay, Philippines

The Philippines is a fascinating country. Consisting of over 7,000 islands, this is a part of the world that you can spend months exploring. However if you only have limited time and you’re wanting a bit of a beach holiday, then you are going to end up at queer Boracay.

Boracay is one of the best beaches in Asia, and when you are looking at beach holidays in the Philippines then Boracay is probably the easiest one to get to – normally about a one hour flight from the capital Manila. I was in Manila in June 2014 – spending time with my friends Silba and Deanna (and their young son Harvey).

Caticlan is the airport that services Boracay. Once you land at Caticlan you have to take a short bus trip and then a short ferry ride in order to get to Boracay.

We were staying at Jony’s Beach Resort – friendly and modern, just across the road from the beach. After a couple of margaritas looking out over the water, we strolled along the beach to find somewhere for dinner. The beach is full of bars and restaurants – it reminded me a little bit of Koh Samui in Thailand.

Nomadic Boys – Gay Guide to Boracay

Author: , July 24th, 2015

Nomadic Boys - Boracay

The Philippines is well known to be very gay friendly to tourists, particularly the popular island of Boragay Boracay. Boracay is one of the more touristy and frequented islands and as a result has a subtle gay scene, so we’ve put together our gay guide to Boracay following our travels there in May 2015.

Boracay has a variety of gay friendly accommodations for all budgets. You could spend as little as 300 pesos (#4 / $7) for a bed in a dormitory to as much as 20,000 pesos (#285 / $440) for a room in a luxury resort.

Filipinos are very relaxed and open-minded towards LGBT tourists so most places will be ok with you booking a double bed. The places we recommend below are 100% gay-friendly, so you can freely wave your rainbow flag at the door.

Nomadic Boys – Swimming Like a Merman in Boracay

Nomadic Boys - Boracay mermen

Well in fact you can, in mermaid schools in Gran Canaria, Florida and Copenhagen, where there’s even a bronze statue devoted to the Little Mermaid. Daryl Hannah in the film ‘Splash’ and Arial in THAT famous Disney film (!) was always a source of inspiration for birthday boy Sebastien to swim like a mermaid.

But when Seb set eyes on the Little Mermaid statue in Copenhagen, that sealed the deal and swimming like a mermaid in tropical waters became his #1 life long ambition!

Boracay is one of the few places in Asia where you can learn to swim like a mermaid. So for Sebastien’s birthday in May 2015, his life long wish came true and we took a mermaid swimming lesson with the excellent Philippines Mermaid Swimming Academy.

White Beach in Boracay

White Beach in Boracay - Dany

Aaah, the Philippines… I don’t even know where to start! So far, I’ve had an amazing time here – much better even than I expected. Not that I wasn’t expecting to like a few weeks of beach and island hopping, but I just didn’t expect these islands to be soooo pretty.

Even though I am moving around quite a lot (because as usual, I want to see it all.. but I cut down my itinerary already) I feel relaxed and mellow. There have been frustrations, too (the food! complicated travel planning!), but how can I stay mad for long with picture-perfect tropical beaches like White Beach in Boracay (pictured) or San Juan Beach in Siquijor.

After a few days in Manila, Boracay was the perfect introduction to the lazy beach life in the Philippines.
