Gone were the days when only dauntless travelers would have the courage to visit Boracay
. The once-secret paradise only known to Western backpackers has evolved into a bustling tourist island. Over the years, Boracay
has transformed into an accessible destination for both local and international travelers. In fact, thousands of travelers visit this world-renowned island each day just to experience its white sand beaches, engaging water sports activities, and diverse gastronomic delights. And with years of development and booming tourism, the beaches that used to be surrounded only by coconut trees are now enveloped with commercial buildings.
While there are 12 beaches surrounding Boracay
, one that is well-known in the international arena is White Beach
, an immaculate four-kilometer beach with white sand as soft as baby powder. White Beach is divided into three sections, and on its central part is Station 2 where most of the action happens.
Here, amid the hustle and bustle, lies a place of serenity: Canyon de Boracay
. This hotel stands as an oasis in a tourist-frenzied spot, one that can make your island dreams come true. Read on and we’ll tell you all about it.

Traviesa means ‘piece of wood’ in Spanish which is highlighted by the natural look of the restaurant.
You need not go far to try delicious food on the island since Canyon de Boracay has its own in-house restaurant, Travesia. It’s hard to miss, as it is set just in front of the resort’s lobby. Travesia’s signature drink will also be your first taste of Canyon de Boracay’s hospitality, as you will be served with this refreshing drink while waiting to be checked in.
Travesia translates to “piece of wood” in Spanish, and you can already tell that this is what it means just by looking at its rustic look. Although this al-fresco restaurant serves an array of European and Asian menu, classic Filipino dishes are also a hit among diners.
The seafood in this dish gives a unique twist to the classic Filipino dish.
One of their specialty dishes is the seafood kare-kare, a stew with a thick peanut sauce. Kare-kare is normally composed of ox tail, offal, and tripe, so having seafood as the meat is a delightful and unique take on the traditional recipe. You would surely ask for some extra rice with this dish’s savory flavor.
Choose from savory or light flavors at Traviesa.
If you prefer something lighter, then try the grilled salmon with lemon butter. It is highly recommended as its bright flavors are not too heavy on the stomach. It is served with rice and some vegetables to still make for a satisfying meal.
Enjoy these gastronomic delights at Traviesa.
If you want to skip the rice, they also serve pasta and pizzas. Their signature Traviesa pizza is perfect for meat lovers. Who would not drool over a pizza with ham, bacon, pepperoni, various types of sausage, and salami? If you’re a vegetarian, Travesia also has menu options for you.
Choose from any of these classic cocktails as you bask in the late afternoon sun.
You can finish your meal with some classic Filipino desserts such as leche flan (caramel custard) or halo halo (shaved ice with various toppings). Don’t have a sweet tooth but suffer from thirst? Don’t worry! Travesia offers various alcoholic drinks, too. They serve classic cocktails, premium wine, and liquors.
A Perfect Venue for Intimate Gatherings
Have your own little party at the poolside or just soak in this private infinity pool at Canyon de Boracay.
If you’re planning to hold business or social events, Canyon de Boracay can also arrange everything for you. They have a business center that can cater to meetings, conferences, and private gatherings. You can also reserve Traviesa entirely for your event if you want to hold it in an al fresco setup.
The poolside can also be the venue for your little party. It is located at the inner portion of the resort so you get the exclusivity you want. In here, you and your guests can soak up, chill, and rest away from the sun and the crowd.
