Things to Do in Boracay

There are many activities to do and attractions to see in Boracay. This post is based on the things we did and from the things I've done from my previous Boracay adventure.

1. EAT

Food is first in my list. When I go places, I always find myself looking for restaurant to eat. As much as possible, gusto namin kumain sa mga resto na wala sa Manila or Pampanga.

You can try eating dinner at restaurants at the seaside. We already tried the buffet in La Carmela de Boracay, buffet in Astoria and Kalinga Bar and Restaurant Seafood buffet. Also try the Original Hawaiian Bar-b-que and I Love Backyard BBQ. For breakfast try the original calamansi muffin at Real Coffee and Cafe. for refreshing fruit shake, try Jonah's Fruit Shake.

Mayroon ding paluto restaurants sa may d'Talipapa. 
You can buy seafoods sa mga stalls and you can ask the restaurant to cook them for you the way you want.



You can see the signage in different language.

This is my personal favorite

2. WATER ACTIVITIES

Most hotels also offers water activities. But if you want to haggle the price, just walk along the white beach and the commissioner will come to you offering various activities. 

Helmet diving

I already tried this 2x, but the first time is much better when there were only 2 operators doing helmet diving. Back in 2010, hindi pa masyadong crowded sa ilalim, medyo malinaw pa ang tubig at maraming pang isda. Helmet diving costs around Php 200-400 depende kung ilan kayo. It comes with underwater photos with CD. Don't worry about safety, as you will get a briefing before submerging.


Flying Fish

My husband and I also tried this in 2010. At first, I was hesitant because I have poor grip on everything. But then my husband convinced me, for experience daw. I forgot how much we paid but now  I heard it cost around Php 300-400. It was an experienced i would never forget.  Because of my poor grip, 3 times akong nahulog sa gitna ng dagat. Good thing we had a briefing na babalikan naman ako at di ako lulubog dahil sa life vest. 


Banana Boat

For Php 150-250 per person (minimun of 5) you can ride the banana boat. I didn't try it because I'm waiting for my husband. My sisters and her friends tried it. 

Parasailing

My sister May tried this activity. It cost her P1500.00 last 2011 but she said its all worth it. Now it cost around Php 700-1000 per head.

3.  SHOP FOR PASALUBONG

You can shop for souvenir and pasalubong at d'mall and d'talipapa.



4.  ATV

At Php 400-500, you can experience driving the ATV. Don't worry if you don't know how to drive, madali lang naman. Gas at preno lang ang dapat tandaan. We got the service of Happy Dreamland Theme Park. Ang ATV package na kinuha namin ay may free entrance sa Trick Art Museum at fre Sky Cycle Ride sa theme park. Hindi na kami nagpunta sa zoo para mas marami ang oras namin sa Ocean Tower.




5.  BORACAY NIGHTLIFE

Restaurants and bars along the white beach offers happy hour cocktails. Because we were so tired, we just had coffee at the rooftop of Starbucks. While walking along the white beach, you can watch the fire dancers for free. They just ask for tip though after the performance. And also the famous sand castles appears at night.



6. WALK ALONG THE BEACH

Walking is exercise, lalo na kung maganda ang view. You can walk along the beach from Station 1-3. Marami kang makikita, sa way of life ng mga tao. Sa dulo ng Station 1 napaka pino ng buhangin. Sa dulo naman ng Station 3 halos walang masyadong turista... maraming small boats. Mas magandang maglakad sa bandang hapon while waiting for the sunset.



7.  BORACAY PHOTO OPS

Of course, mawawala ba naman ang photo ops. Picture sa beach, sa tapat ng hotels, sa tapat ng mga stores at sa famous landmark sa Boracay... willy's Rock.




Next time... i will try other activities for a brand new experience.
