Where is Kalibo Island? I know there is a town called Kalibo on the island of Panay (which is kind of the gateway to Boracay), but I've never heard of a Kalibo Island. If the Kalibo near Boracay is what you are talking about, just take her to Boracay. There will be a lot more for you to do.

If you make reservations at one of the better resorts on Boracay, you probably don't need to worry about much. I would imagine the better resorts take care of the details for their guests (to comply with the new regulations). BTW, there is a Shangri-La Resort on Boracay, which is likely the best resort on the island.

It's a very safe place. I stayed in the Marzon hotel and one other hotel there but don't remember the name. Marzon was somewhere in the 1500 peso range, basic and clean with a pool and a restaurant attached to the hotel. You won't find anything nicer in town. Tricycles are everywhere and reminded me of bees going in and out of a busy hive. No fancy restaurants in town.

Consider a trip to Roxas City (the seafood capitol of the Philippines) where you can stay at Antonio's Resort hotel on Baybay Beach. The beach has a strip of waterfront eateries with delicious seafoods and you will even find a Mongolian style restaurant there.

my wife and some of her family just returned from boracay a couple days ago and said there was nothing different about getting there or staying in a resort.  i don't think there is any new homework needed aside from the usual trip planning stuff like before the closure.  she said there was plenty of available resorts to choose from.

Nothing to do there really. Either go to Boracay or you could try Pandan if you fancy somewhere quieter, about 40 mins south of the turn over to Boracay. Small white beach there and a nice river aswell.

The home work I meant was I read that you must have proof of booking for a hotel before they let you go to set foot on Boracay and other rules about drinking on the beach..

maybe I dont understand something here .  You will stay in Kalibo  Island [ which is on an island but certainly not an island]  and will rent a small bike and tour Boracay  where you are not allowed unless you have a reservation there ??  Did I miss anything out ?

Supposedly, as a tourist, you are not allowed to even board the boat if you don't have a booking with an accredited hotel. 

Here is a list of accredited hotels as of about a week ago

http://www.tourism.gov.ph/files/DEC28_BORACAY.pdf

 

Reading other forums. Some people say they were checked and some say they weren't. i presume they didn't check you had a correct booking. 

 

Not sure what you are supposed to do now if you just want to visit for the day. If I was staying in Kalibo, I would not bother with staying on Boracay. i would just do it as a day trip.

Actually its quite simple .   You drive your car up to the ferry .   Once you get the front two wheels on the boarding  ramp the the back two just kind of follow along .

Then you just park where they tell you to .  They take care of the rest .
