Ocean Garden Villas - LOCATION
The Ocean Garden Villas location in Brgy. Yapak, a Boracay barangay that has the highest elevation, is easily accessible from Station 1 via the Boracay Highway Central through a road from the side of the Fairways & Bluewater Golf Course.
The main mode of transportation around Boracay is the motorized tricycle which can seat 5 passengers (excluding the driver) as its capacity. These tricycles serve as taxis that can go uphill at full capacity. There are pedicabs (a foot-operated tricycle) that are available for rent in beachfront. The other means of transportation are mountain bikes, quad bikes, and motorbikes, all of which can be rented.
At present, Boracay has a local population of more than 33,000 people, not counting the more than 15,000 daily arrivals of tourists (2016 record). You might wonder that the island has no school of its own at because of its remoteness. You are definitely wrong!
Some of the best schools in Boracay include the Little Islander Montessori School, Balabag National High School, Boracay National High School, Bloomfield Integrated Academy, Inc., Goshen School of Technology & Humanities, Agape Boracay Academy, Inc., Boracay European International School, and the Lamberto H. Tirol National High School, among others. Aside from the St. Luke’s Medical Center at the heart of Newcoast, there are other hospitals around the island. These are the Ciriaco S. Tirol Hospital, AMC Diagnostic, and the Clinica de Boracay.
Moreover, shopping and dining outside of your home will not be an issue in Boracay. These are some of the shopping centers and markets within the island; CityMall Boracay, D’Mall Boracay, Island Magic Tailoring Shop, Paulo Collection Body Wear, Boracay Public Market, Talipapa Market, and the Bamboo Market. There are also American, Asian, and European restaurants in downtown Boracay which serves authentic dishes. These places can be reached at an average time of just 10 minutes riding a tricycle where the fare is cheaper than a bottle of coke.
