Boracay – a distant island located 445 Kilometers away from Metro Manila. We only see and hear its beauty in pictures and in tales; but just like in love, we plunge ourselves to uncertainty and with all our heart we say, “Here we go!”
Boracay Island is a paradise sought by almost everyone because of its white sand and clear blue sea. But did you know that this place is also perfect for all the water activities that your wandering heart craves? Let’s go and let’s experience Boracay Island!
Boracay Itinerary Destinations:
If you’re up for an adventure; then this one is for you. If you’re not, then this one is still for you! If you’ll ask me why you have to Island Hop, I can only think of one thing – Puka Beach! Puka Beach is the unscathed part of Boracay; and probably, it will be the perfect place and most unpopulated spot for you to swim and enjoy the clear blue waters of the island.
Rate: P1,000 to P3,500 per boat (depending on the size of the boat)
Up for a ride? Buckle up and hold on tight because you’ll have a free ride on a speedboat before you fly high above Boracay Island! In my opinion, this is the best place to parasail so that you can also have the best view on the best beach in the Philippines! I suggest that you save enough money for parasailing before you go to Boracay. I’ll tell you, it is all worth it!
If Sagada, with its famous line “Ayoko na!”, is for the broken hearted; then maybe Boracay’s Parasailing is for someone who is in love. Because it has the ability to make you confess your love and who knows, you might shout “Oo na, sinasagot na kita!” because of its stunning view and well… you don’t know if it will be your last day on Earth.
Rate: P2,000 to P3,500 per pair (2 persons)
Tip: Give your camera to the boat staff before you fly! I guess I don’t need to explain, just look at that picture: two love birds captured on air!
Paraw Sailing (Sunset Sailing)
If you want a breathtaking view of the sunset in Boracay, then you must not miss this ride! I don’t know about you, but for me it’s also a sweet and romantic spot for lovers.
Rate: P1,000 – P1,500 per person
Tip: Set a schedule beforehand so you can be sure that you’ll be able to ride the “paraw” during sunset.
See the beauty under the sea! You’ll literally see life below and you’ll realize that there’s more to discover for you.
Rate: P600 per person
Tip: Listen well to the instructor and expect that if will feel like your eardrums will pop, but don’t be afraid. You’ll soon get used to it.
Other itinerary destinations include:
Banana boat, flyfish, snorkeling, stand up paddling, kitesurfing, windsurfing, ATV riding, scuba diving, cliff diving, reverse bungee, mermaid swimming, glass bottom boat, zipline and zorbing.

I have only one advice for you if you can’t decide if you’ll go here for your next trip: Go! Go because you’ll never know what you’ll miss if you keep having second thoughts about it. Like in love, if you don’t know how to risk and gamble your heart, you’ll never win the jackpot.
Recommended Budget for 4 days and 3 nights in Boracay:
P15,000 – P20,000 for two people
