Boracay is indeed one of the world’s best beaches. But what exactly to do in this beautiful paradise? Here’s a quick traveler’s guide on what to do, where to eat and where to stay in Boracay.
BORACAY: A PARADISE
There are two main ways on how to go to Boracay: via plane or boat. For our trip, we went there via 2GO. It was first ever legit ferry ride and it was kinda cool. The ambiance was pretty nice although the entire trip was around 9 hours. From Caticlan Jetty Port, we rode a pump boat going to Boracay island and from there we went to our place via Island Star Express.
WHAT TO DO
For someone who doesn’t know how to swim (really!), this is the closest encounter you could get to the bottom of the ocean. Helmet diving is purely based on the power of science. You’ll be carrying a really heavy helmet on your shoulders (don’t worry, they become weightless underwater) and because of the pressure, water won’t flow inside the helmet enabling you to breathe normally. You can have a close encounter with marine species and even get to feed the fishes!
Rate starts at Php 600 and already includes underwater photos and videos (via CD).
If you think Boracay looks awesome already, wait till you see the view from up above. Got a chance to try Parasailing. It can be done by solo, by two’s or three’s. While waiting for your turn, you can just party party and why not do some shoots? Haha!
Rate starts from Php 1,000-2,000 per ride.
Another awesome water activity you should try is the Flying Fish. It was the best activity I’ve tried but too bad I wasn’t able to take photos since it’s not advisable bringing an action cam. Basically, you’ll be riding a large float and you’ll be pulled by a jet ski.
ATV RIDE + BIL-AT BEACH
3 days and 2 nights in Boracay is too short to experience and enjoy everything but if you have spare time, you may want to try these other popular activities as well:
WHERE TO EAT
Boracay is also a food destination. For our trip, we tried out 2 main restaurants that can satisfy your hunger. Most of these are located along Station 2 since they have the widest variety of restaurants.
Must try here is their tacos! It’s just veerrryyyy goooood. Also, they claim to have the best churros in the island and I have to say it’s really good.
GLOBY TRAVELING CHEF
Another restaurant we tried is the Globy Traveling Chef. We had lunch here and tried their bulalo, sisig, kangkong and lumpia. Really recommending their sisig!
JONAH’S FRUIT SHAKE
This is probably the most popular restaurant in the island. Their fruit shake is indeed a must try! It’s perfect to beat the summer heat!
