Nowadays, going to Boracay in the Philippines is much lighter and easier by bringing only a small amount of Cash, ATM Cards and the normal luggage. There are 3 ATM’s in Boracay placed in strategic locations along the white beach and inside D’Mall.
Allied Bank ATM, located a couple of hundred meters away from Villa Romero in Station 3 is very visible and accessible. The stand-alone ATM located outside the building is open 24 hours a day. It is specifically in Queen’s Beach Resort (part of the long white-sand beach) where a couple of stand-alone Foreign Exchange establishments are situated. There are a lot of resorts and tourist center who handle foreign exchange in Boracay so there’s no need to worry.
BPI ATM is also found along the beach near Station 1 and Station 2. A stand-alone Metrobank ATM is available inside D’Mall which is accessible by the beach, meters away from the main road of Boracay. A guard on standby is available which makes transaction safer when you’re inside.
There are a couple of Money Changers in D’Mall and they offer a higher rate compared to the ones found along the beach but not as high compared to the regular exchange rate in malls in cities such as Cebu, Davao and Manila where competition is high.
