Stables: "Local Art" Top 5 Page for this destination Boracay Island Shopping Tip by syllybabe

Boracay Island Shopping: 83 reviews and 137 photos


It's just one of those little shack-like shops along the beach that you'd pass in between station 2 to station 1. They sell a little bit of the usual stuff...beads, sarongs, wood sculptures and some local art.
An added bonus is the little bar right next door run by an Italian-American lady from San Francisco...right now I can't remember her name. She bakes calamansi (local lemon) cakes and serves different kinds of tea and coffee.

What to buy: We discovered that Stables is like a little gallery for a few artist friends of the owner. Ended up buying a 30 x 48 inch (or something like that) painting for the bargain price of $60. It's hanging in the living room in Maine.
