25 Must Do Activities In The Paradise of Boracay Island, Philippines

by Keith Yuen

Kumusta kayó? haha Whenever people ask me for beach destination recommendation for South East Asia, I will not hesitate to introduce Philippines! Many people always think about having a vacation in Thailand, they have no idea what they might miss out about the Philippines! Apart from the quality beaches, clear blue sky and deep calm beautiful ocean, what makes Philippines a unique and perfect destination is – the people! I have never seen so many beautiful people and received such warmth hospitality, no other than The Philippines!

The tropical island of Boracay is one of the Philippines’ most popular world’s destinations. Its white sand beaches are the island’s main draws. Explore the 4.5-mile-long island by motorized pedicab or rent a bicycle or motorbike from your resort. Boracay is divided into three main districts: Yapak in the north, Balabag in the center, and Manoc-Manoc in the south. Central Boracay is situated in the mid-west of the island along White Beach

Here are the few things you must prepare yourself for this heavenly paradise! 🙂

1) Helmet Diving

Ever wonder what it feels like to walk on the ocean floor? Helmet diving allows you to climb down a ladder until you reach a sea bed (around 10 ft. below the surface) while wearing a helmet made of glass plates. The helmet makes it possible for you to breathe underwater while marveling at Boracay’s colorful sea floor with an abundance of tropical fish! You need not panic and enjoy the fishes with plenty supply of oxygen! 🙂


2) Flying Fish Boat Ride

This is by far the most strenuous water sports ever! If you think this is easy, try to sit behind and if you afraid of water and no strong arms, I suggest you give this a miss! haha


3) Banana Boat Ride

This is much easier than flying fish boat ride! Should say this is for beginner or people who wants excitement but don’t wanna fall into the sea! haha


4) Snorkeling

If you do not have a padi license, snorkeling in Boracay Island is a good choice. Depending which site you snorkel, the white beach side has lesser current and the water is perfect for you to laze on the surface of the sea! You may see heaps of tiger fishes and smaller fishes! Your boat guide will provide you with bread but its not for you to eat but for the fishes to swim together with you! haha Well, if you are hungry why not? Bear in mind that the small fishes do BITE! LOL

5) Scuba Diving

If you have a padi license, you may dive underwater and enjoy more fishes and corals! Beware of the sea urchins, there are the last thing you wish to land your feets on! haha


6) Cliff Diving at Ariel’s Point

This is the BEST of the BEST activity in Boracay! I went there twice and I always had a BLAST! Awesome fun and sun! Diving was a bit scary cos I did the highest dive (16 meters) twice! Not many people dare to do that but yea… YOLO… I did it twice! Can say I am proud, but do bear in mind… diving is at own risk! There were people who hurt or injured themselves from cliff diving before.

Well, dont waste the fine powder white beach sand! Make full use of it… since it’s so smoothing… jump as high as possible and get the best photo out of it! 🙂

Even the hotel staff were impressed with our vegetarian bbq dinner at our resort! 🙂

I was a bit scared of going there… Paradise or not? Tourist trap? Wow, what a nice surprise once arrived there! Loved it! It is not a paradise, I guess for some it is… But it’s a wonderful destination for a 3 days trip with some friends.

Hey, thanks! What is the best month to go there?

Keith Yuen February 15 - 4:34 am

Hmmm, in general, the October to April time is the best for PH due to lesser threats from the typhoon. It’s dry so you won’t need wet weather alternatives. haha
