1. A pristine white sand paradise
Station 1 probably is the most picturesque and pristine beach in Boracay. While the entire White Beach has powdery white sand and crystal-clear turquoise waters, this area for me, is much cleaner than the rest of White Beach. Close your eyes and imagine stepping onto the softest, powdery sands you've ever felt. Station 1's beachfront is the epitome of tranquility, where the dazzling white sand meets the turquoise sea in a harmonious dance.

2. The main meet up point for water and island hopping activities
Station 3 used to be the only meet up point of activities in Boracay such as island hopping, parasailing and paraw sailing but station 1 recently became another rendezvous point for these activities right in front of Astoria Hotel. This makes it more convenient for guests staying in Station 1 or 2. Imagine being this close to your meet up point, just as you step out of your resort.
3. Lots of dining and entertainment options
While the choices are not as wide as Station 2, Station 1 is also home to an array of restaurants, cafes, and bars, offering a diverse selection of cuisines and entertainment options. Whether you're craving local delicacies, international flavors, or simply want to unwind with a refreshing cocktail, Station 1 has something to satisfy every palate and mood. Station 1 also houses the only Starbucks in Boracay so you can sip on your favorite Frappuccino while enjoying the view of the ocean.
If the choices in Station 1 is still not enough for you, it is also close enough to Station 2's vibrant nightlife scene. D'Mall is also about 3-5 minutes walk depending on which hotel/resort you are booked in. It's close enough for Station 1 guests to walk to where the action is, but still far enough for them to get a good night's sleep.
4. Secluded enough for a soulful and relaxing escape
Amidst the paradise buzz of Boracay, Station 1 offers a serene escape. If you're seeking solitude away from the crowds, you've found your oasis. Station 1 exudes a more laid-back and tranquil ambiance compared to other parts of Boracay since it's located relatively farther away from D'Mall and closer to the edge of White Beach. The absence of loud parties and heavy crowds allows visitors to unwind and enjoy a peaceful retreat. Whether you prefer lazy beach days or quiet walks along the shore, Station 1 provides the perfect setting for relaxation and rejuvenation.
5. Excellent access to luxury resorts
Indulgence takes on a whole new meaning in Station 1. Nestled along this pristine coastline are luxurious resorts that redefine comfort. Think lavish ocean view suites, world-class spa treatments, and an unmatched level of pampering. Station 1 has most of the luxury resorts along White Beach including The Lind, Fridays, Discovery Shores and Two Seasons. Prepare to be treated like royalty amidst the island's natural splendor.
