One of the most beautiful white beaches in the Philippines! Enjoy the crystal clear waters of Boracay Island!
Here’s an update from the previous article “①How to get to Boracay Island”. This time we will introduce marine activities that you can do on Boracay Island and how to spend time at White Beach. As I mentioned last time, Boracay Island was temporarily closed for environmental protection, and thanks to strict rules and maintenance, it has become a resort island where you can enjoy the beautiful beach with peace of mind after resuming entry, making it a more popular island than as it was before for both Filipinos and foreigners.
The island is divided into, namely Station 1, Station 2, and Station 3. Each has its own characteristics, so it will be a point when making a hotel reservation.
Station 1 An area where luxury resort hotels are located. There were few restaurants and it was relatively quiet. There is a tourist attraction "Willy's Rock" with a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary installed on a monolith on the beach.
station 2 A lot of souvenir shops, restaurants and bars here and there is also the island's number one shopping mall D’ Mall. A jam packed open-air mall that is great to roam around since it has many options for shopping and dining.
Station 3 There are many diving shops, etc., and it is a thriving area that offers an array of marine sports.
Recommended marine activities to experience on Boracay Island.
As you walk along the beach, many tour guides will guide you on marine activities. The contents are full of fun activities such as parasailing, jet skiing, yacht (charter), helmet diving , banana boat, sailing boat, diving, helicopter sightseeing, island hopping, etc.
The price listed on the menu is the same everywhere , and it's a little expensive because it's for tourists. The actual price depends on negotiations with the guide! Don't be afraid to haggle, as guides are willing to give you the best offers. You may become friends unexpectedly and get something extra. Isn't this kind of place one of the joys of traveling abroad?
Recommended popular crystal kayak.
"Crystal kayaking" is a very popular marine activity that you can try when the sea is at its most beautiful. This kayak is completely see-through, so you can feel as if you are floating on the sea. Because it is the sea of Boracay Island, the clear sea that can be seen from the bottom of the transparent boat is really beautiful. The staff will guide you through various poses and take dozens of pictures from various angles just like a professional photographer. Actually, I got the impression that there were more people riding this kayak for taking pictures than enjoying the scenery. According to the staff, some people take off their swimsuits when shooting, and it may be the next regulation on Boracay Island. Everyone, be careful (laughs). In addition to kayaking, there is also a pedal boat, and the fee is 500 pesos for 15 minutes, so you can enjoy it casually when you have free time.
Enjoy a bird's eye view of the Boracay’s sunset by parasailing.
What I would like you to experience is Parasailing, a spectacular activity that overlooks the sea of Boracay Island. I wanted to go at sunset, so I met the guide at 4:00 pm and walked to Station 3, a place full of diving shops and restaurants where divers gather. If you want to participate, you can adjust the schedule. The guide will buy the boat ticket on your behalf, so you can leave it to us. In fact, until the guide gets on the boat. After getting on the boat, please follow the guidance of the person in charge of the boat.
Take a speedboat from the pier and transfer once. If you change to a boat equipped with parasailing, it will take you to the experience point. At this time, I was suddenly nervous and sweating strangely, but the boat crew was Filipino! The tension was eased at once because the crew was good and very friendly. When you get on the boat, you will read the safety regulations and sign a pledge. Put on a safety belt, etc., and it will lift you up to the sky in no time.
Sunset time recommended
Boracay Island is famous for its highly transparent and beautiful sea, but in fact, what you definitely don't want to miss during your stay is the sunset. Depending on the time of your stay, the sky will turn pink or orange as it gets a little darker around 5:30pm. The color of the sky reflected in the sea is so beautiful that words cannot describe it, and the sun slowly sets for about an hour, but you will definitely be mesmerized.
Joining a sailing boat or parasailing during this time will make the experience even more memorable.
REAL COFFEE real coffee where you can enjoy coffee while looking at the beach.
If you want to take a break after your marine activities, we recommend the long-established cafe “Real Coffee”'on Boracay Island. Founded in 1996, there are many photos of tourists who have visited the store and tables. The beach is in front of you and the location is perfect. You can also see the beautiful sunset from here. We recommend the Calamansi muffin. The muffins made with Calamansi, which is famous in the Philippines, have a nice aroma and a refreshing taste that will also refresh your tired body after playing on the beach. In fact, calamansi is called a “miracle fruit” because of its high nutritional value, and is an indispensable fruit in the Philippines. Rather than eating it as it is, it is often useful as a garnish for juices and seasonings, but this was the first time for Calamansi muffins. It was so delicious that I wanted to eat it again. Unlike modern cafes, there is no air conditioning in the shop, but please enjoy the local cafe while feeling the pleasant breeze blowing from the beach.

Why don't you try marine sports that you can't experience in everyday life because it's an overseas resort? One of the attractions is that you can challenge yourself at a relatively affordable price compared to other overseas resorts! Compared to before COVID-19, there are still fewer tourists, and it is highly recommended that you follow rules and regulations in activities smoothly. That's the point. I saw some people actually paying. If you don't wear a mask, you have to pay a fine of 2500 pesos. Since it is a beach resort, you want to enjoy a sense of freedom, but please observe the rules of the island and have fun.
In Boracay Island ③, I will report on souvenirs and meals! Look forward to it♪
