This is a personal travel to one of the beautiful island in the Philippines. Here, I am sharing the fun activities that you can enjoy in Boracay. I also shared some tips before and after you go there. So, enjoy!

Boracay island

It is already spring in other countries, but here in my country—the Philippines, it’s just getting hotter and hotter. The summer season is fast approaching and the people are already thinking of the best summer get away whether with friends or family. And in the Philippines, one island is very famous for Filipinos and foreign people. And it is no other than, Boracay.
Boracay—being named as a world class island,has captured the hearts of the Filipino and also the foreigners. So, why do people just can’t stop going to Boracay? Here are the different things that you can do in this beautiful island:


If you want to see the whole beautiful island in a bird's eye view, then try this activity. It’s worth the price and it’s worth the wait. A lot of people would line up for this activity, but it would never disappoint you.

Flying fish

This is one of the most exciting activity that I have tried. It really gives you the feeling of adventure and excitement.

Sea walking

Cold and scary-- this is how I describe this activity. For those scared to go swimming, I don't recommend you this activity. I nearly drowned when I tried this and I swear, I would never do it again. But, for those who love scuba diving, this actually good. You can feed the fish and see a lot of things underwater. It's also cheaper compared to scuba diving.

Island hopping

This is a fun activity with friends and family. You can wander around the islands of Bora riding a boat. You can also see dolphins sometimes, if you’re lucky.


I didn't have the chance to do this activity but this actually fun.People will have to drive an ATV on mountainous area and have the adventure they want.

Foreigners and Filipinos love clubbing, so Boracay just gives you the fun on the beach. Aside from discos, there are also fire dance that you can witness.

Watching the sunset

Bora has one of the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen. And waiting it the whole day definitely worth your time.

Breakfast beside the beach

After a long and exhausting but fun activity in the morning, it’s even greater to have a breakfast on or beside the beach.


Since Boracay has everything you need, from bags to shoes, accessories and souvenir items, you can enjoy shopping everywhere. Though it’s a little expensive compared to other places, it’s still worthy to buy a souvenir from Boracay.

How to get there

By air

Boracay is served by two airports in Aklan province: one in Kalibo and Godofredo P. Ramos Airport (commonly referred to as "Caticlan airport") in Malay. Most domestic airlines fly to Kalibo and Caticlan namely: Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific, Zest Air, Air Philippines, and Seair.


When it’s summer season, hotels in Boracay Island are almost full so, you better book the hotels 6 months before you visit the island. The same goes with the airplane ticket. There are several promos given by airline companies such as Cebu pacific, so you can avail of those promos. You can check the internet for more information.

Prepare your swimwear and do not forget your sunblock. It’s more fun in Boracay with a sunblock on and with the best swim wear you've got, so Bring it on.
