What’s Different?

Boracay is a haven for sun-seekers from all over the world. The island has become a popular destination for both local and international tourists. Others have decided to reside in this safe sanctuary. Boracay’s thousand hectares have everything a tropical paradise should have: crystal blue seas, powder-white beaches, abundant tropical palms, flowering plants, and a healthy and diversified marine life.

Be it splurge or save, this Boracay vacation guide leads to a happy ending of wondrous sceneries and entertainment for anyone. To help choose what to do while considering both perspectives, here are activities that you can participate in while on the island of Boracay.

1) Splurge: Go to the island by airplane

Nothing beats the efficiency and hassle-free commute made possible by air travel. A clean and quiet journey is what you will expect when you choose to fly to get on Boracay. To go to Boracay, you can go direct locally via Caticlan Airport or you’ll need to take a couple of transfer flights. The Kalibo International Airport can be reached by flying from Cebu or Manila, Korea’s Incheon, Taiwan, China, Singapore, and other destinations. The more you spend on your ticket class, the more relaxation you will experience. The price is the only concern that you need to consider.

Save: Experience traveling by sea for your Boracay vacation

You won’t just save money by using this alternate mode of transportation; you’ll also get a taste of what it’s like to go by water. Boracay Island may now be visited for as little as P950 via ferry. The most popular choice is taking the route from Batangas to Caticlan. The only suggestion is to keep your expectations in check. The long travel hours will also be quite noisy, especially if you don’t find the regular class unfavorable. There are a variety of booking options available where tourists can save more. Pro Tip: travel with your own blanket if you will sail at night.

2) Splurge: Eat at prestigious restaurants every meal

Boracay is a gourmet paradise in addition to its gorgeous beaches and scenic attractions. It offers a diverse range of restaurants serving a variety of cuisines, including traditional Filipino fare as well as foreign such as Italian, American, Spanish, and Asian cuisines. Many of the restaurants on this list are oceanfront, while others are located along within White Beach’s Stations. Spend on premium creations of well-trained chefs backed with years of experience and see for yourself. Some of the tourists’ favorites include Sunny Side Café, Don Mestizos, Epic Boracay, and Nalka.

Save: Munch at local karinderya and try the street foods of Boracay

The sanctuary is relatively small in land area compared to other isles in the country. As a result, stayers can roam the island with just a two-hour walk. This exploration is worth it as you can see the real-life and customs of the locals residing on the island. You will also have a glimpse of hidden spots that most travelers haven’t had the pleasure of witnessing. It will be better if you will have a companion to talk to while immersing and absorbing the bountiful nature. If you also like other means, rent a bicycle to wander into different areas of the Boracay Island.

5) Splurge: Pay for a Dinner Yacht Cruise

If splurging is the topic, what can beat sailing around the picturesque Boracay island on a magnificent 42-foot Fountaine Pajot Venezia Catamaran?

Enjoy a secluded, intimate setting with views of the gorgeous beach and crystal-clear ocean. Invite your friends and family to join you on a relaxing day sail with a maximum capacity of 18 people. The day, afternoon, and twilight Boracay sails are all included, so you can bond over excellent food, beverages and even go swimming or snorkeling!

Save: Chill in a Paraw Sail on your Boracay Vacation

There are many ways to enjoy Boracay’s world-renowned beauty, but what could be more exemplary than watching the sunset while cruising the island’s waters in a humble boat with your loved ones? Aboard a colorful paraw or traditional Filipino boat, this 2-hour tour around the area allows you to take in the beautiful views. The whole sail is a breathtakingly gorgeous excursion around the island, accompanied by paraw sailors.
