Boracay Guide: What to Do and Where to Eat

Wednesday, June 22, 2016 Justin Vawter 0 Comments



Boracay is indeed one of the world's best beaches. But what exactly to do in this beautiful paradise? Here's a quick traveler's guide on what to do, where to eat and where to stay in Boracay.

Boracay: A Paradise


There are two main ways on how to go to Boracay: via plane or boat. For our trip, we went there via 2GO. It was first ever legit ferry ride and it was kinda cool. The ambiance was pretty nice although the entire trip was around 9 hours. From Caticlan Jetty Port, we rode a pump boat going to Boracay island and from there we went to our place via Island Star Express.

There are 2 main beaches in the island: the White Beach where most hotels and establishments are located and the Bulabog Beach which is popular for windsurfing and kiteboarding. Along the White Beach is where the Stations 1, 2 and 3 are located.


What To Do


Aside from beach bumming, there are a lot of activities you can do in the island. From partying to water sports to island hopping, Boracay proves that it has everything you would want in an island. For a guide, here are some of the activities you can do in


Helmet Dive



For someone who doesn't know how to swim (really!), this is the closest encounter you could get to the bottom of the ocean. Helmet diving is purely based on the power of science. You'll be carrying a really heavy helmet on your shoulders (don't worry, they become weightless underwater) and because of the pressure, water won't flow inside the helmet enabling you to breathe normally. You can have a close encounter with marine species and even get to feed the fishes!

Rate starts at Php 600 and already includes underwater photos and videos (via CD).


Parasailing


If you think Boracay looks awesome already, wait till you see the view from up above. Got a chance to try Parasailing. It can be done by solo, by two's or three's. While waiting for your turn, you can just party party and why not do some shoots? Haha!

Flying Fish



Another awesome water activity you should try is the Flying Fish. It was the best activity I've tried but too bad I wasn't able to take photos since it's not advisable bringing an action cam. Basically, you'll be riding a large float and you'll be pulled by a jet ski.

ATV Ride  + Bil-at Beach



There's more to Boracay than just water sports. I didn't know that there's an ATV track that leads to the quiet beach of Bil-at. This is perfect if you want to stay way from the crowd.

Shopping




Souvenirs? Pasalubongs? D'Mall is your perfect spot. It's located along Station 2 and it has a food strip too.

Boracay PubCrawl


Enjoy the night life to the fullest. Experience the party at the island. Turn strangers into new friends. At PubCrawl you get to visit 5 bars and meet new friends. Check out my experience here.




Other Activities


3 days and 2 nights in Boracay is too short to experience and enjoy everything but if you have spare time, you may want to try these other popular activities as well:

Paraw Sailing
Kiteboarding
Island Hopping
Cliff Diving at Ariel's Point

For activities, I really suggest getting Stingray Water Sports Inc. They planned all of our activities and everything went out smoothly. The guides are also very friendly. You may contact them at 0998 997 9181.

Where to Eat



Boracay is also a food destination. For our trip, we tried out 2 main restaurants that can satisfy your hunger. Most of these are located along Station 2 since they have the widest variety of restaurants.


La Cozina


Must try here is their tacos! It's just veerrryyyy goooood. Also, they claim to have the best churros in the island and I have to say it's really good.

Jonah's Fruit Shake



This is probably the most popular restaurant in the island. Their fruit shake is indeed a must try! It's perfect to beat the summer heat!
