Your Guide To Shopping on Boracay Island.
The Boracay Beach Guide is your place to go to for all things Boracay Island related, including shopping!
Below you will find a wide choice of valuable information for your retail therapy fix.
While strolling through the shops and market stalls on Boracay, take your time to check out the goods and prices on offer. Bartering is welcome on the island, so once you have assessed the different prices, use your negotiating skills to buy things at a lower price.
Precious gems such as pearls are for sale on stalls located along the beach. Once again, use your bargaining skills to negotiate a lower price. You can check the authenticity of pearls you wish to buy by using the Tooth Test. Rub the pearl softly against your tooth. If the pearl is natural or cultured, the surface will feel gritty. If the pearl is a faux gem, then the surface will feel smooth.
