The site is located in the corner of Diniwid Beach Road and Boracay Tambisan Jetty Port Road in Station 1 area of the Island, across the main gate of Fairways and Bluewaters Resort Golf and Country Club. The road further up leads to several top resorts in the island and is envisioned to become the melting point for the local and foreign tourists but also the thousands of local residents and workforce of the island from Station 1, 2 and 3.
Boracay Island and its beaches have received awards from numerous travel publications and agencies. In 2012, Boracay was awarded as the best island in the world from the international travel magazine Travel+Leisure.
CityMall-Boracay is seen to promote the local economy through the creation of additional local employment and by encouraging budding entrepreneurs to locate their businesses in the CityMall.
CityMall-Boracay will be the first community mall with a full-size supermarket that is expected to benefit the local restaurants and resorts by providing them with a wide selection of grocery items and other fresh meats and vegetables in the island.
