Boracay has always been a popular destination with beach-loving locals and foreign tourists alike because of its fine white sand, palm trees, and crystal-clear waters.
Staying here can feel like a trip to paradise – so what should you put on your bucket list if you’re booking a trip here?
Read on to find out the fun activities and must-visit places that you should put on your Boracay itinerary.
Chill At Boracay’s World-Class Beaches
No Boracay trip is complete without spending hours relaxing on the soft sand and swimming in the turquoise water. Put White Beach on your list – its 4km stretch of pure sugar-white shores provide plenty of room for spreading out a blanket and watching the sunset.
These tours also tend to include a delicious feast made with local fare, and snorkeling and kayaking access for an additional fee. Check out which attractions are included in the tours before booking one – they come at different prices with different itineraries.
Apart from White Beach, you should bring your camera to Willy’s Point at Station 1 and snap pics with this unusual volcanic rock formation. If you’re not into the party scene, go to Diniwid Beach and Puka Beach to get in touch with nature and listen to the waves away from the crowds. Surf fans will also love Bulabog Beach, with its many windsurfers and kitesurfers getting their thrills in the waves.
Try Exciting Water Sports
There’s no shortage of adrenaline-pumping activities to try in Boracay. Thrillseekers will love going paragliding, windsurfing, and even jetskiing! For those who just want to dip their toes out of their comfort zone, there’s kiteboarding to get your heart racing after a sedate swim.
See The Local Marine Life Through Snorkeling And Scuba Diving
Boracay is also home to many marine species such as starfish, stonefish, angelfish, and even moray eels thanks to their coral reefs. If you want to swim with them and catch a tantalizing glimpse of them in their natural habitat, you can arrange for helmet diving to take an underwater stroll.
Divers will also enjoy the waters of Boracay with typically good visibility and multiple sites for both experienced and non-licensed divers alike. Snorkeling is also a great option for exploring the reefs – you can rent gear there or bring your own.
Go Island Hopping
If you’re planning to spend several days in Boracay, it’s highly recommended that you get a Boracay tour package that will include island hopping. These tours can be private or shared group ones, and they're a great way to get to visit spots like Crystal Cove, Magic Island and its cliff diving, and Coral Garden.
Try Hiking Up Mt. Luho
It’s not just the water activities that are worth checking out in Boracay! Mt. Luho stands 100m above sea level and is the highest point in Boracay – it's the perfect spot for getting a full view of Boracay. Try hiking up it to get a different kind of Boracay sunset! It’s easy to grab a trike ride from Boracay’s stations to the hiking trail’s entrance.
Plan ahead your next visit to Boracay with these exciting activities!
