Things to do in Boracay

Read and Enjoy the Activities:

Boracay island is first and foremost a sun-worshippers paradise. Fine white sand and calm waters conspire to keep visitors coming back. Massages, fruit shakes, drinks, snacks, and even wi-fi make for a one-stop beach experience.

Those who tire of lazing about will enjoy traversing the sandy pedestrian path along the white beach. Restaurants, shops, scuba diving, mountain bike rentals, and sea sports of all sorts are available along the beach. There will be no shortage of friendly faces offering sunset paraw (the local sailboat) tours, island hopping and tours by motorized banca, hair braiding and henna tattooing, and even a little Nemo to show you some clown fish through a glass bottomed boat! Internet, phone, and fax are available all over the island. Notable are the Korean owned Station 168 and Inso at D'Mall.

For the more adventurous, there is D'Wall, a rock climbing wall located at D'Mall near Boat Station 2, mountain biking around the island, kayaking around the island (about 4 hours- definitely not recommended in rough seas)

Diving and Snorkeling.

Boracay island is surrounded entirely by reef. The fine white sand is actually a product of the grinding of dead coral. Most dive sites are within 15-20 minutes by boat. Perhaps the best diving is to be found at Yapak, a 30-65m sheer wall covered by soft coral and frequented by large fish. Depth, currents, and choppy waters tend to make this an advanced dive. The dive shop will bring you to more accessible areas for drift dives and cave dives. The sheltered western end of the island also has calm, shallow reefs for beginners.

Windsurfing and Kite-surfing.

Boracay island has become a destination for wind and kite-surfing. Conditions are good year-round at various areas around the island. Bulabog Beach along the eastern shore of Boracay island is a popular area for beginners and experts alike due to the onshore winds and shallow bottom.

Other Water Sports.
Nearly every imaginable water sport is available in Boracay. Motorized boats, kayaks, para-sailing, banana boats, and jet-skis are all available at reasonable rates.

Mountain Biking.
Numerous places rent out mountain bikes. Check the quality of the bike carefully as the ocean air is very unkind to mountain bikes. If you are able to find a good quality rental, there are many enjoyable tours to be had around Boracay Island.


There is a massage to be had for every budget, from the Php 350/hour beach massage to the $70 treatments and the world-renowned Mandala Spa near Station 3 of Boracay Island. Nestled in a lush forested hill is a first-class native-style resort and spa offering restorative packages such as foot baths, body wraps, floral baths, and massage. A professional but loving touch divinely invigorates the worldly worn among us.
