In the island of Boracay, you can feel the summer vibes all year round! This small island in the western part of the Visayas region is known for its white-sand beaches and vibrant nightlife, as well as for being a haven for water sport enthusiasts. Diving, snorkeling, kayaking and windsurfing, you name it and you’re sure to find it in Boracay!
Boracay’s main beach, often known as White Beach to most tourists, is further divided into three parts: Station 1, Station 2 and Station 3. At station 1, you’ll find expensive hotels and other luxury facilities, while station 2 is known as the food and party hub. However, if you’re looking for some privacy, station 3 is known to be the quietest part of the island, located at the southernmost corner of Boracay. With the recent Boracay reopening, you’ll surely get the chance to enjoy all three of these stations.
Are you ready for an exciting trip? Whether you’re looking for adrenaline-pumping activities or you’re just aiming to have a relaxing vacation, Boracay has something great in store for you. Read on below to know what you’re going to expect:

Jumping Off a Cliff
Let’s get straight to the most thrilling activity there is on the island: cliff diving!
At Magic Island, a popular cliff-diving site just a couple of minutes away from the beach proper, there are some diving boards that stand 15 to 30 feet (4.5 to 9 meters) high, which you can access for a minimal entrance fee. The fee includes unlimited use of diving boards but excludes the use of protective gear such as life vests.
For a meet and greet with Boracay’s underwater residents, you can go scuba diving! There are over 14 different sites in the area with varying challenge levels and features. For starters, you can try Angel Point, which is characterized by reefs with sea grass, or Coral Garden, where you’ll find shoals of a ton of colorful fish.
Going on a Hike
Boracay is not just about the sand and the waters. Hiking enthusiasts would surely be thrilled when they know that the island’s highest point, Mount Luho, is open to the public for outdoor activities.
On the way up, you can visit a wildlife park where you’ll find a Philippine eagle, different species of birds, snakes, monkeys and wild cats. The entrance fee is just a dollar, which is very budget friendly for travelers on a budget.
Try Being a Mermaid
If you’ve ever had dreams of being a mermaid when you were younger, well, the Philippine Mermaid Swimming Academy in Boracay can make sure that such dreams can come true.
They offer mermaid swimming lessons that aim to familiarize participants with the mermaid’s tail. Classes last for 90 minutes and include a directed mini-photoshoot after the session.
So, there you have it. These are just some of the things you can do in Boracay island. Yes, you may have done all these before, but with the recent Boracay island reopening, you’ll surely enjoy these activities more in a much cleaner environment.
