Less than an hour away from Manila by plane, Boracay Island, was named among the Top Islands in Asia in the 2021 Readers’ Choice Awards of the prestigious Condé Nast Traveler Magazine. This list of things to do and tourist attractions to see is everything you’ll need to have the best time in your happy place this summer.
Ten Things to do in Boracay this Summer:
1. Paraw Sailing
A great way to explore Boracay is from the ocean through paraw sailing. It is a must-try activity where you can enjoy a relaxed time on the calm blue waters of Boracay, feel the light sea breeze, and witness gorgeous island vistas. It’s the traditional mode of traveling Boracay and its nearby islands. You can set sail during the day or sunset!
2. Boodle Fight
Along with the island’s beautiful shorelines and scenic attractions, Boracay is also a foodie haven. We can all agree that a trip to the beach is never complete without having fresh seafood and grilled meat with family and friends. Enjoy the perfect food selection when you feast on Sands Restaurant’s Boodle Fight.
3. Eat and Shop at D’Mall
Located in Station 2, D’Mall Boracay is a shopping center that houses a collection of restaurants, souvenir stores, cafés, bars, and more. It is the best place to go on a food trip and shopping for unique local finds.
4. Rejuvenating Spa Treatment
Spending too much time under the scorching sun can cause harm to the skin. Give it some TLC and replenish your skin’s moisture with Terra Wellness Spa’s fresh aloe vera and cucumber body wrap. This wrap contains vitamins C and E, and antioxidants that naturally heal the skin and help reduce skin pigmentation.
5. Scuba Diving
Tambisaan Beach is well-known for its diverse marine life, which includes corals, fish, and crustacean species. To get to Tambisaan Beach, take a boat from Station 3 or ride a tricycle heading to south via the main road.
It’s a terrific place for snorkeling and scuba diving, and is regarded as one of the Philippines’ top diving sites.
6. Banana Boat Adventure
The banana boat ride is one of Boracay’s most popular attractions. This banana-shaped inflatable boat is tied to a speedboat, so hold on tight or get ready to crash into the water!
7. Witness the best light show on earth
There is no denying that Boracay Island indeed has the best sunsets. You can get an amazing view of the sunset from Discovery Shores Boracay’s 360 Roof Lounge, where you can relax, forget about your worries, and simply be wowed by nature’s colorful masterpiece.
Beach days are meant for relaxing and unwinding. Enjoy the rest of your day with a good cup of joe and the calming sound of gentle ocean waves crashing on the shore from your seat at Sand Bar.
