No “world’s best beaches” list can be complete without Boracay and its white, powdery sand and stunning sunset.
Tourists from all over the world come to Boracay for their most important weeks of the year. The famous White Beach on Boracay's West Coast, is probably the most beautiful beach on the island. It was even selected by several international travel magazines as one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world.
Boracay is also a paradise for SCUBA Divers and Snorkelers. There are plenty of dive sites around the island, for beginners as well as for advanced divers. Most of the dive sites are just in front of White Beach, so it takes only a few minutes to get there.
Besides diving, there are several other sports and activities offered along the beachfront: kite surfing, water ski, parasailing, sunset sailing or a ride on a banana boat.
Most travellers and tourists ask about the best time to visit Boracay. Expect slight changes in weather and the number of people depending on the season but expect to fall in love just the same, over and over again. Setting foot in Boracay is like staring at a postcard - it is just unbelievably majestic. It is true that it is not unspoiled and isolated but Boracay has a way to make you feel idyllic and calm. It’s not all hype and fuss. After all, that’s not enough to lure travellers to keep coming back but the charm, the fun, and the romance certainly do.
These are just a few of the myriad of reasons why you should see Boracay at least once in your life.
Boracay is a tropical island surrounded by stunning white sand beaches and clear blue waters located about an hour's flight from Cebu or Manila just off the larger Philippines island of Panay.
For beach connoisseurs, Boracay competes with the best beaches in more popular destinations such as the Caribbean and the South Pacific as well as neighbouring Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia. The more active will appreciate water sports and activities such as sailing, windsurfing, snorkelling, diving and jet skiing. The fun in Boracay doesn't end when the sun sets. The nightlife pulsates with many bars and restaurants serving food, drink and fun until the wee hours of dawn.
Most popular beaches in Boracay:
White Beach - this is what most people are here for. Not only is it a lovely stretch of powdery white sand against azure water, it's also the commercial centre of the island. The long beach is divided into three sections, Station 1, Station 2, and Station 3. Station 1 is the northernmost and has the widest beachfront, where prime hotels and resorts are located. Station 2 is the commercial and geographical centre of the white beach. This is the centre of it all for shopping, eating, partying, and etc. That said, the beach here is also the most crowded, and the area the noisiest. Station 3 is the southernmost section; quieter than station 2, it is the least developed, and also the lowest priced. All of White Beach from the northernmost tip of Station 1 to the southernmost of Station 3 (~4km) is open to the public, so one can relax and/or swim wherever you like, regardless of hotel location.
Puka Beach - a quiet stretch of white sand along the northern tip of the island, Puka Beach is an image of what most people expect on a tropical island: white sand, azure water, and relatively empty. This is where locals gather the small puka shells for some of the jewellery that is sold on the island so expect the sand to be more coarse than on White Beach. The water tends to be a little rougher on this side of the island but it is much quieter. Similarly, there are fewer services -- there are only a couple of restaurants, but you likely won't have a problem getting a cold drink or an ice cream as there are a few vendors that patrol the beach. The main road in Boracay terminates at Puka Beach, therefore, you'll be able to hire a tricycle to get there in less than 10-15 minutes from central White Beach. Make sure you arrange a pick up if it is a quiet day and no tricycles are hanging around the beach. Most people experience Puka as one of their sailboats or Banca stops during a day trip. This is a good spot for a picnic, but be sure to bring your trash home with you.
Baling Hai Beach - This is a quiet little cove just north of Diniwid Beach, where you can enjoy swimming, snorkelling and dining in a relaxed, peaceful environment. There are some fantastic views from the cliff top restaurant. Baling Hai is often included as a stop-off on an island boat tour.
Bulabog Beach - come there on windy days to see kiteboarders doing high jumps and crazy tricks.
The Bat Cave - one will see in several tour guides and maps of Boracay something called the Bat Cave, which houses many small insectivorous bats (the larger fruit bats roost in the trees on the hillside above Punta Bunga Beach). The cave is on the western end of the island and down several dirt roads. The guide will then take you on a short hike through the forest to the mouth of a cave, which drops down at a very steep angle. The mouth of the cave is littered with large boulders and is extremely difficult to enter and walk down. There is no visible path, no handrail, and the stones are extremely slippery with slime and bat guano, as well as extremely dangerous since the cave is at such an extreme angle. Also, the air inside the cave is very warm and humid, and in addition to the amount of guano, is very difficult to breathe. Additionally, several snakes live inside the cave. Caution should be taken by those visiting and entering the cave. There are bats in the cave, but down at the bottom of it in the dark, and unless you have a flashlight or are there at dusk, you won't see them. The ceiling of the cave is interesting, however, with multiple, small stalactites. Just nearby, you can find another cave, called "crystal" cave which has a lot of stalactites and a hole on the opposite side of the entrance, from which you can watch out to the sea if you dare to climb up to it.
Best things to do in Boracay?:
Scuba diving-for those interested in Scuba Diving and Diving Packages, there are literally dozens of Dive Centres along the White Beach; it is a good place to learn or to improve your skills, although tech, cave, wreck and instructor level certifications can be earned. Under the initiative of the Boracay Business Administration of Scuba Schools (BBASS), of which all dive centres are members of, there is an agreed standard pricing on scuba diving courses and activities. There are 25-30 dive sites within 10-15 minutes speedboat ride from the beach, suitable for beginners up to advanced level. Dives range from 'Angol Point' (10m), through 'Crocodile Island' (22-25m), a straightforward wall dive, up to 'Yapak'- a deep wall dive suitable for only the most experienced divers due to strong currents, although there is the possibility of seeing sharks and stingrays.
Kiteboarding- Kites on Bulabog beach
Boracay's Bulabog beach is known as the best kitesurf destination in Asia. The season runs from November through to April with onshore winds varying between 12-30 knots. Small lagoon (2km wide) is protected from waves with coral reef. Water becomes almost flat on a low tide, making it easy to start learning kitesurfing and continue with freestyle tricks. Because of its nice conditions, the spot becomes overcrowded with riders in high season.
Skimboarding in Boracay has been a new fun sport for kids and entertainment for older for people for several years. It is a welcome new attraction and a pleasure to watch. Skimboards are available for rent at several places along White Beach.
Bakhawan Mangrove Forest (or Bakhawan Eco-Park)- located on the mainland of Aklan province, the Bakhawan Mangrove Forest is a popular side trip for Boracay travellers. Hailed as one of the most successful mangrove reforestation projects in all of Southeast Asia, the Bakhawan Mangrove Forest is just 10 minutes away from Kalibo Airport, the international gateway to Boracay Island. This 200 hectare nature park features over 20 species of mangrove trees, 28 species of birds, and a wide variety of marine life such as mudskippers and fiddler crabs. While the forest's main attraction is its 1.1km nature trail, guests can also experience the park by paddling a kayak, riding a bamboo raft, or enjoying a locally-harvested meal.
Cliff Diving at Ariel's Point-a fun and affordable day-trip destination for Boracay visitors who enjoy new eco-adventures and meeting fellow travellers. Located 30 minutes away from Station 1 by outrigger boat, Ariel's Point offers a wide variety of adventurous activities such as cliff diving (five different platforms ranging in height from 3-15m), snorkelling, and kayaking in an unspoiled tropical paradise near volcanic caves, mangrove forests, turquoise pools, and remote beaches.
Parasailing - take a parasailing tour around the island, to explore quiet beaches and snorkel sites.
Motorbiking - it's worth hiring motorbikes or scooters to explore the island, as there are other beautiful beaches on the other side of the island that are even better for snorkelling that are not as crowded as White Beach. Hire them for a couple of days and you should get a discount. The roads are a bit dodgy, and some are still being constructed, so use caution.
Horseriding is a fun activity in Boracay. Get off the beaten path and experience villages and scenery most other visitors don't get to see. All levels of experience are catered to.
Mermaiding is a very new and fun activity to do in Boracay. Children and adults can take various types of mermaid swimming classes in the ocean or in a swimming pool. This involves putting on a monofin and learn various mermaid swimming techniques.
