Red Butterfly Travel Series: Potipot


Potipot is an island surrounded by white sand and calm, clear waters. It’s a perfect place to relax and escape the craziness of the city… for a few hours or so. Unless of course you bring your own tent, food and water, and you’re cool with cleaning yourself up with salt water.

When my friends and I went there a couple of years ago, there weren’t any establishments on the island yet. There was no electricity and no fresh water. I’m not sure though if things have already changed.

There are many cheap resorts on the mainland in Uacon where you can hire boats to take you to Potipot. The boat ride takes about 5 minutes and costs around 300 pesos (7 USD), good for 6 people (round trip).

There’s really nothing much you can do in this place but swim, sunbathe, walk around the island and take photos. If you love Boracay, you’d probably get bored after a couple of hours and head back to the mainland.
