Boracay checklist: 7 must-dos on this party island

A holiday on the island of Boracay should ideally be as stress-free as possible; after all, you're there to unwind.

If you have been enticed by our Insta-glam pictures of Boracay and more picturesque shots you've seen online, use our checklist as your "cheat sheet" for some of the best of dining, shopping and watersports spots.

Here, we scout seven of our favourite spots and activities on this beach destination in the Philippines.


For a chance to view sights like Puka Beach and the isles of Boracay, be sure to go on an island hopping boat trip while you're there.

Island-hop around Boracay

Be warned that prices vary across the beach. You are likely to be approached by many touts along Station 1 and 2, the most popular beach stretch on Boracay, who may charge different prices for the island-hopping package.

The easiest solution is to get a fixer to schedule all of your outdoor activities for you. This will reduce the overall cost of renting the gear and the return boat ride for every trip out to the sea; give the guide tips of around 10 per cent of the total cost for each day.

Prices: From PHP1,600 (about S$45.95) each for island-hopping, inclusive of snorkeling gear.

If you can't dive or snorkel well, try helmet diving at an additional PHP 700 (S$20.30) each.

You'll wear a 30kg helmet that allows you to get up-close with the fishes and stay submerged underwater for around 20 to 30 minutes.
