Travel date: June 2022
I’ve only been to Boracay 3x and recently was my first time to be with my aunts, uncles and cousins. So, I’ve listed the Top 5 activities that you can do in Boracay:
I first experienced this in November 2021 with Mai & Shayne and I wanted my family to try this too. This is a 30 min paraw ride, no gas, and it uses wind to go through the shores of Boracay upon sunset.
Best during sunset: Always check the sunset time in Boracay Island, if you set it up with a local, just give them a heads up that you will start 30 minutes or 15 minutes before the sunset time. By this, you will be able to catch the majestic sunset while sailing.
This is very friendly activity and safe for kids and senior citizens.
Cost: 2500/boat or 4000/8 persons
- Explore Boracay Stretch or Stations 1, 2 & 3
Beach, Sunset, Food, Coffee & Desserts: This is a no-brainer activity. Best foods and experiences are always at the front beach. If you don’t want to do any activities, just look for a coffee shop or restaurants that offer happy hour and just chill.
Also, always check the sunset time – look for any spot on the shoreline and witness the majestic sunset in Boracay.
If you want to shop around for souvenirs, convenient stores and dresses start at Station 2 going to Station 3.
Cost: Beach bumming is free, just pay for your own food.
- Land Tour
I think this was just offered recently or when the New Coast Boracay opened. Most of the organizers or locals will offer a Php 500/hour per e-trike with a minimum of 2 hours and you’ll be able to reach the following destinations:
- Boracay New Coast
- Cujo’s Keyhole
- Puka Beach
- Ilig-iligan Beach
This can be done in 3 hours and you can manage if you want to not include the other destinations.
Cost: Php 350/way/destination for 6 persons or 500/hours per trike minimum of 2 hours
I wanted this since my first visit to Boracay, however, it’s just too pricey for me until in June 2022! I finally did it with my sister. It’s almost a 10-15 mins ride where a parachute will be released from a boat yet you are being pulled by a boat, so you’ll have a majestic aerial view of Boracay island and Malay. It’s pretty safe as it comes with harnesses and a life jacket! The staff will also tell you the hand signs if you still want to go higher or just settle at a lower height. Perfect for those who are not afraid of heights and those who wanted to just try the activity.

Cost Php 1500-1800
- UFO for the Young, Wild & Adventurous souls
No amount of words can explain how we (cousins only) had fun on this ride- We loved the adrenaline rush and the fun!
Cost: Php 700/pax for 7 persons
These are not fixed prices. If you know how to deal with and haggle, you can still find better prices than these.
Next plan: I actually haven’t tried helmet diving and scuba diving yet, so, maybe in the next visits– I will!
