Hi guys

A few friends and I are heading to the Philippines. At present our plans are Boracay and camiguin.
I am just wondering if anyone has been and can recommend nice but basic accommodation in these areas. We like beach huts etc. Would be interested in other ideas though. We just want to be on beautiful beaches surrounded by nice people and a few resturants/bars but not packed with tourists. If you have any ideas please let me know and ill consider them when we get there (no hotels please). Excited :-) Thanks

I've never been to Camiguin but Boracay and Calaguas are just astounding! Check out Boracay Beach Resort which is budget-friendly. Enjoy!

For Boracay: If you want to stay away from tourist-cramped places, avoid Station 1. The beach is always too crowded and you wont find any "affordable" accommodation there. Walk over to Station 1. The beach is more peaceful and locals offer affordable accommodation. :)

Check out Palawan and El Nido. You'll be amazed! I've been there; and highly recommend it.

Hello! I live here in the Philippines and yes its right Boracay is a beautiful island but its always crowded because its a favorite tourist spots. We have a beautiful beach also here in Sta. Ana, Cagayan Valley. It is considered boracay of the north. Try to search at look for it :)
