Boracay Island is every traveler’s favorite destination in the Philippines. In fact, this is our second time visiting Boracay Island. During our first visit to the island, we never really got a chance to explore the different cafes and restaurants around since we only had to stay for a day at that time. But now, we were fortunate enough to stroll around and try some of the best restaurants on Boracay Island. 

As we were exploring the island, my friends and I wanted to try some fresh seafood for lunch. Apparently, there are so many seafood restaurants in Boracay, where, in fact, some locals would offer their food and services while you strolled along the beach. 

Some seafood restaurants in Boracay are offering “paluto,” which means they serve and cook fresh seafood for the customers.
