Go beach-hopping

Boracay’s nature is truly spectacular and beach-hopping is one of the best ways to enjoy it to the fullest. White Beach, despite all its beauty, is the most touristic place, so if you want to escape all the people and enjoy a more peaceful atmosphere, head to other picturesque spots like Lapus-Lapus Beach, Puka Shell Beach, Ilig-iligan Beach, Bulabog Beach, and many others. All in all there are 13 beaches in Boracay to explore. Each of them is worth visiting!

Eat till you drop

Local food is as vibrant as the surrounding nature. Avoid tourist baits that offer typical western dishes and go for the local food. Start with Philippino restaurants like Smoke Resto at D’Mal and don’t miss the legendary D’Talipapa which is the go-to place if you want to enjoy some quality seafood. Street food will pleasantly surprise you with dishes like balut, chicharon (pork fat crackers), and the famous Chorizo Burger prepared with sweet meat. It’s a must-try!

Go for all kinds of water sports

Boracay is a real heaven for all water sport lovers. Go scuba diving and snorkeling while enjoying an amazing variety of sea animals and plants. Kiteboarding, windsurfing and parasailing are great for those who love wind just as much as they love water. You can also submerge into the ocean and walk on the seabed with a huge heavy helmet that will keep you underwater. It’s a unique opportunity to get as close to underwater creatures as possible! You can even enjoy some actual ‘mermaid swimming’!

Enjoy the nightlife

Boracay is as lively at night as it is calm during the day. After all, this is what most people come here for – beaches and parties. Even if you are not big on partying all night long, local bars, clubs and restaurants are definitely worth checking out. For a ’15 shots challenge’ head to Cocomangas Shooters Bar or enjoy some signature drinks at Coco Bar. Exit Bar is famous for its live music so if you want to spend an evening with a drink and a great band performing right in front of you – this is the best place to be.
