Rated No. 1 in my Top 10 Destinations in South East Asia, for me this place is paradise. White beaches, palm trees, turquoise waters and violet sunsets. Ahh! Top it off by sipping Mojitos and listening to an acoustic set with some beautiful Filipina sitting next to you. What more could you want?

The Girls

Two please!

If you like cute Asian girls in bikinis you’ll love this place!  Filipina, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, European – Boracay has it all. It may be a honeymoon island, but they’re plenty of singles around. Not only are the girls here sexy and slim, they’re game too. The island is the premier destination of a country with 80 million people and as a result, the locals who come to Boracay are all about foreign men.  It’s easy to approach any time of the day whether your target is working or chilling on the beach. Bag yourself a few beach babes and you’ll want to return again, and again, and again. Just be careful, the island is small and you run into trouble dating too many girls… (I found that out the hard way). Heads up, you will encounter a fair few hookers and ladyboys also. So you want to get laid in Boracay? Here is my fabulous…

Beach Bar Bedroom Bladder Bounce technique:

1) Give out / get a phone number. Commence txting.

2) Arrange date for a happy hour, somewhere relaxed and near your place.

3) Get your girl mellowed on cheap cocktails. One Mai -Tai will do the trick, these chicks are tiny!

4) Go for a romantic walk on the beach during sunset, find a place to chill on the sand, conveniently just beside where your staying. Kiss her.

5) This point is crucial. Wait for the cocktail to work it’s way through her system. When shes needs to use the bathroom just say.. “Well, you can use mine if you want, it’s just here…” If she has a unusually strong bladder and that fails, just give her some other excuse to enter the room. “I got some pics you should see” or just flat out lie “Oh, there’s something I got to show you!” (ie. my cock). It doesn’t matter, nine times out of ten it’s golden.

6) I’ve just shown you how to get a drunk beach babe in your room and it’s not even dinner time. I think you can figure out the rest.

This technique works well for instant dates also.

Nightlife Recommendations

Nigi’s Nigi’s

Not a bad place to pick up a stray or two. My friend and I both scored here more than once.


This disco bar by the beach is where the party’s at. Every night here is insane! This is the number one spot to pull. Grab a girl, do some bumping and grinding then take her home and destroy her! But expect to see her there again, this place is often the only option. Need a little encouragement?

Check out this Bikini contest at Cocamangas…


Getting High

Hard to find. This may be the first post where one cannot help. If you want to get high in Boracay, your best bet is to bring some with you. As usually, beware of entrapment by corrupt officials on the island.

My Boracay Experience

I went nuts here. At one stage I had 9 dates in 3 days! One during the day, one at happy hour and one in the evening. That was before Cocomangas! Like Phuket and Bali, I was shaggin’ like a rabbit. One problem – I kept running into girls I had hooked up while I was on other dates! Things turned ugly. I effectively got chased of the island, warned never to return.

    Hey, NM!

    When is the low season in Boracay?
    What kind of game should I run on the beach and in general? Direct?
    Is 2 weeks enough time to get my rocks off?

    • naughtynomad August 23, 2010 at 5:40 pm #

      2 weeks! Try two days; less. I would say one week in plenty for the island, it’s actually quite small. In terms of game, I was pretty direct. The girls will be too so don’t worry! Low season is Mid-June to mid November. I’m sure you’ll have fun here 😉

      • robot January 28, 2014 at 5:07 pm #

        Hey dude, great article.
        Can you tell me if hotels bust your chops (charge $$) when bringing
        girlfriends or hookers back to the hotel

      • Hippo September 10, 2018 at 8:22 pm #

        Hey guys. Help me out.. where do I stay in Boracay. Sation 1, 2 or 3

    Your blog is awesome! Keep up the kick ass reviews.

  4. Mark August 24, 2010 at 3:57 am #

    Keep up the awesome, my good man!

  5. Shaman August 24, 2010 at 6:06 pm #

    I think we’re going to need you to expand on the story about how you got chased off the island. Come on, it’s not like you can’t REALLY go back, the population can’t be THAT small!

    • naughtynomad August 24, 2010 at 8:10 pm #

      A slightly hyperbolic statement on my part and I will DEFO be returning – it’s heaven. The island is quite small though.. you would be surprised. Planning on checking it out?

      • Mark August 24, 2010 at 8:12 pm #

        I am now! haha, sorry to hijack the post.

  6. leet August 28, 2010 at 2:36 pm #

    I would be careful in the Philippines. I caught herpes
    when I was there.

    • naughtynomad August 29, 2010 at 4:16 pm #

      ! Bad Buzz man ! Care to name and shame the girl so others may avoid the same faith?

  7. Master September 17, 2010 at 6:35 pm #

    Your contest submission is great.

    “Let’s change the subject. What do you do?”
    Sounds like she was interested. I bet you banged her later. I mean, you shored her.

    • naughtynomad September 18, 2010 at 3:12 pm #

      I did not actually make that submission. The author was referring to a video on my Boracay island guide 🙂

  8. Lika July 29, 2011 at 6:43 pm #

    Hi NN,

    I want to go there around Christmas. Apart from the fact it’s gonna be more expensive. Why would you say high season is bad?

    What hotel / guest house would you recommend there?

    I won’t be able to look around as I usually do since it’s gonna be high season. I need to book everything in advance (quite a gamble…)

  9. G the misadventurer August 7, 2011 at 7:13 am #

    Amigo, if you come back to Boracay hit me up and we’ll have a smoke sesh! I’m not from here but i immediately felt that ganja was hard to find here. Cant trust anybody. I get good weed from friends in near provinces (Manila) to be safe! Keep on with the misadventures!

    Hey naughty nomad, where did you stay in and would you recommend it?

    • Naughty Nomad March 1, 2012 at 5:00 pm #

      Can’t remember is was mid-beach somewhere

  14. rizzo April 16, 2012 at 6:55 pm #

    I’ll be going to boracay in may, first time in the phillipines. Is it really as easy to get laid here as it is in thailand? I can’t imagine anywhere being as easy as phuket or ko samui.

    • Naughty Nomad April 16, 2012 at 7:45 pm #

      It’s not quite Phuket, but yeah it’s pretty easy.

  15. Jack April 17, 2012 at 10:12 pm #

    I went kiteboarding in Boracay, Philippines 2 months ago. Did some night stuff as well. Have to say a lot of the writing about girls and such is exaggerated. Only 2 places to hang out after 11pm or so. Summer Place and Epic near the D-Mall were the best in my opinion and had the best crowd ratio at about 50/50 local/foreigners. Cocomango was all local hookers, you’ll get approached even before entering the place. I found quality of locals was sub-par, 2.5/5 at best. Lots of transvestites or ladyboys or whatever you wanna call them. Lots of “pros” of the business, didn’t try so can’t write anything about it. Have a wingman/buddy all the time with you otherwise you’ll be hit like a “pinata” all the times from the local “pros”. If possible get a room on a house or smth, my hotel had a guard and he was being a asshole all the time. Lots of white drools buying drinks to girls: guys please stop with that! Good things was there were lots of white girls while I was there, some even 4s or 4.5s on my scale. You play it cool and you’ll score. Don’t skip the coreans or chinese girls, might be tricky to break the ice in the beginning but it’s smooth sailing after that. Language might be a problem some times since not all all them know english, just be persistent and don’t make language barrier count. Overall I’d rate the place 3/5.
    PS I live in NYC and I’d rate it here like 4 or 4.5 out of 5 with Jessica Biel on her low 20s a solid 4.5

    • Naughty Nomad April 18, 2012 at 9:32 am #

      @Jack: Good breakdown dude.

  16. Rick May 28, 2012 at 5:06 am #

  17. alex June 11, 2012 at 6:44 am #

    Is mid august good time to go to borocay? Will weather be good? Also looking for a nice hotel at station 2, 2000 to 2500 php per night, please advise, thank you.

    • Naughty Nomad June 11, 2012 at 2:26 pm #

      If it’s high season, no. I hear high season it kinda sucks.

  18. David June 26, 2012 at 6:26 am #

    Cocomangas is 89% prostitutes, so well done for getting laid there 😀

  19. Diego_natural June 26, 2012 at 6:54 pm #

    guys, im going to book for 3 week in bocaray, last week of July until august.

    I would like to know witch beach is the best ?

    I really like creamy skin japanese, sounds like heaven…

    • Naughty Nomad June 27, 2012 at 12:32 pm #

      There’s only one beach, pretty much.

  20. Diego_natural June 27, 2012 at 4:53 pm #

    I mean witch station ? 1 2 or 3 ?

    the hyper crowded with russians is not for me. Or maybe I will just rent an hotel room for 1-2 days, then I will figure it out.

    I home it is still as you described :-)))))))

  21. kris July 4, 2012 at 6:59 am #

    most girls in boracay are on holiday and in the Philippines is where the young people go to party and go wild, what happens in boracay stays in boracay (Thats the saying in the Philippines), if you head over to places like juice bar and epic the clubs are full of beautiful filipinas from manila etc, on a 2-3 day vacation and really really up for new experiences. Cocomangas is mostly local hookers who might not charge as such, but have gone to boracay in the hope to find a foreign husband. Been living in boracay for years and i just love the mix of women, filipina, european, american.

  22. botman August 19, 2012 at 5:13 am #

    Dude i am 48 and still in fair shape.
    Will the cute girls from Manila still bang on or should i stick to Thailand

    • Naughty Nomad August 21, 2012 at 6:18 pm #

      Sama Sama!

  23. Denis July 5, 2013 at 2:00 pm #

    Hi ! Can i find a black girl in Boracay ?

  24. Nick October 14, 2013 at 2:21 pm #

    hahaha quality! i did the same bathroom trick in spain 2 times. had the hotel right opposite the biggest nightclub, and the line for ladies to pee was like 30 meters long! 😀

  25. BoracayLiving May 31, 2014 at 9:38 am #

    Cocomangas is actually the one place you want to avoid the most. This is where the majority of the working girls here work. Don’t get me wrong, they are everywhere but most normal girls do not go there and most living here such as myself won’t go there due to the reputation it has gained. The place to go now is Summer place. 200php entrance fee so less hookers, and I don’t think they allow lady boys in.

    • terrafirma October 31, 2014 at 11:30 pm #

      Hey dude thanks for the tip 🙂 Are you still in Boracay? I’m planning a trip there in early January 2015. Could you give me a quick guide how to get there from Manila? I’m a total newbie and so ANY tip would be helpful. Also do I need to book a place to stay in advance or are there good and affordable places on arrival?

      Thanks and keep up the good work!

      • Chris December 9, 2014 at 1:25 pm #

        Hi terrafirma
        Im also going to boracay from dec 16th till Jan 14th I have booked a room through air b&b and the guy I booked with was really helpful with travel arrangements. So this is how to do it from Manilla get the bus to Batangas an pick up the overnight ferry from there to Caticlan with 2go ferries. Costs about 1200 PHP. I understand the ferry leaves at 8pm but you have to be there early around 4pm. It gets into Caticlan at 7am then its just a short boat hope over to Boracay

  26. Da Mango August 5, 2014 at 8:01 am #

    Boracay is great fun, especially for singles. Just make sure your hookups don’t collide and such. You should also try the bars on the Main Road like Cocomangas and Club Paraw, but Nigi Nigi’s bar is a great place to meet peeps.

  27. terrafirma October 15, 2014 at 12:27 am #

    hey NN/guys,

    Thanks for all the hot tips on Boracay! I’ve never been to SE Asia but I’m already planning a trip to the Philippines just reading your posts. Now as a first time tourist I’m gonna need help. First off, what’s the easiest way to get to Boracay from Manila. Also, would you or anyone in here have the contact of a local who could be useful in showing me around on my first day? I learn fast so I may not need him much after Day 1 :))

    I’m african and black but I’m confident I can pull some game whether local or foreign :p But any useful tips on that would also be well appreciated.

  28. Indian guy January 20, 2015 at 7:35 am #

    It’s always easy for westren guy to find a girl anywhere around the world specially in less developed countries like SE Asia or Africa. Indians (Indian, Pakistani, Bangladesh, Srilankans) always find hard to find and hookup with girls due to many many reasons. Most important reason is the image of the country U belong (you can’t hide from where you belong) saw someone many refusal straightway.

    Thailand still have some value left for Indian Asians, is Boracay is good for Indians as well to find, not in any competition with any westren guy but still is there any good chance for us in Boracay to have some fun? Plz need reply

  29. Rich Kid March 16, 2015 at 2:38 pm #

    Thanks for all the advice guys, Plan a trip for April with my Girl. She broke up with me last week. After reading this, I know it will not be a Total waste of a tip 😉 looking forward to trying your methods out. Will post back.

  30. Paul April 21, 2015 at 1:15 am #

    Nightlife in Boracay is awesome! Love the laid back atmosphere and that you can meet girls from all corners of the world there (during high season)

    • Mark Zolo April 21, 2015 at 1:03 pm #

      Sure man.

      • Coops May 22, 2015 at 11:50 pm #

        Currently in borocay, the review you done is still relevant… Is not hard to pull a bird and even the Filipino girls are easy enough to shore if required buy them a cocktail as you said and that’s your definite in….

        Also staying at Mandarin island hotel, great spot in middle station 2, bit more of a higher end hotel for the area but I like to spend a little on accom… No joiner fees required but It does say no visitors after 11pm which it doesn’t really worry me I just walk straight into my room, no security patrolling or anything so ally’s sweet ….

  31. CoolJohn101 September 27, 2015 at 4:16 am #

    Hey, great read as always! I hear these girls like Americans, even if they’re a fatass like me haha! What are your thoughts on a white dude that’s 250 lbs’ chance of picking these girls up? Thanks in advance!
