The best beach clubs in Boracay are a huge part of what makes this festive tropical island so popular for groups of friends looking for a chic yet laidback lounging right on the beach. The recipe to make a booming beach club seems pretty simple, but it’s not always easy to achieve. The best ones boast an outstanding beachfront location, exquisite food, potent cocktails, leisure activities, energetic musicians or DJs, efficient staff, and, above all, a friendly atmosphere.

    Boracay Island’s best beachfront bars and restaurants have all of this to a certain degree, so you might even decide to do a tour of several different beach clubs while you're in Boracay.

    Epic is one of the most popular beach club in Boracay. This beachfront bar and restaurant seems to have different lives depending on the time of day or night: pleasant to chill out and dine at between swimming sessions during the day, it also offers romantic, candlelit dining with your toes in the sand after sunset, before turning into a lively nightclub from midnight until late.

    Located in the centre of everything in Boracay, right next to D’Mall at White Beach – Station 2, Epic Boracay is a modern venue that offers both exquisite dining and world-class partying.
