Boracay Butterfly Garden was established in 2002 and openned to the public in April 2005.
It holds a Wildlife and Collector's Permit from the DENR/PAWB and is registered to breed butterflies.
The beautiful, netted, tropical garden contains hundreds of live Philippine butterflies of many different species, and in excess of 150 plant species. In the nursery section, the caterpillars and pupae can be closely observed.The adjoining Gift Shop specializes in Philippine Handicrafts, eg Romblon marble, nito, abaca, Aklan pottery, etc., and the restaurant serves light snacks and hot/cold drinks. The same building may be rented out for private parties.
One of it's specialties is providing live butterfly releases for weddings and other special occasions.
It is situated on the Bolabog Beach, on a 1600 sq.m beachfront property, which is only a 4 minute walk from the D'Mall Shopping Centre or a 7 minute walk from White Beach, via the path that runs on the north side of the BWSS.
Vehicle access is possible, taking the road running eastwards from Crafts of Boracay Supermarket, turning right at the Bloomfield School, and after 100m, turning left on the road that leads to the Bolabog Beach. It can also be accessed down the A1 road or English Bakery road, and a short walk along the Bolabog Beach.
It is open daily from 8am to 5pm and charges 100 pesos for foreign adult visitors, 50 pesos for Philippine adult visitors, and 25 pesos for children.
In the early hours of 10th Dec.2006 a Signal 4 Typhoon hit Boracay Island and the island was devastated.
A large hardwood tree crashed on top of the butterfly enclosure, weakening the structure, and the resulting wind did much damage.
A decision was made by the owners to dismantle the netted enclosure and make a decision later in 2007 on whether to rebuild it.
Fully furnished, self-contained cottages, have been built on the same site and short and long term rents are available.
