Boracay truly is one of the world’s best beaches—and is a favorite of people who love the water and everything it offers. There are just so many things to do on the island — and following are 5 of the coolest things you can do in Boracay this summer!
One of the coolest — literally — things that you can do in Boracay is parasailing! Just imagine being up in the air, carried by a parasail, and seeing the magnificent beauty of Boracay from up above. You can even take photos, too, so you’ll have a memento of your time up in the air!

Sure, Anilao has a lot of great diving sites, but Boracay is simply underrated because aside from being beautiful aboveground, it also has a lot to offer under the sea! In fact, the island of Boracay has more than 15 majestic diving sites where you’d get to see various fish, corals, caves, and even underwater tunnels — making for a terrific and unforgettable experience!
Rates: P1600 for a “fun dive”/ P3500 for 3 to 4 hour beginner course
Where: White Beach
3. Island Hopping
Another great thing to do in Boracay is island hopping. In fact, it’s one of the most popular tourist activities in the area. After all, you really won’t be able to fully appreciate Boracay with just one glance. There are more than a dozen beaches — and a whole lot of coves to see. What you can do is join one of those boat tours, and get to see Tambisaan, Crocodile, and Puka Beaches, alongside other beaches on the island, too. You might even make new friends along the way!
Rate: P1000 to 3000 per boat
Where: Ask the staff of the Boracay resort you’re staying in so they could recommend a great tour for you.
4. Standup Paddling
This is kind of challenging, which makes it all the more fun! It’s like surfing — minus the crazy waves of the sea. What you’ll do is paddle a board while standing up, and since Boracay’s waters are shallow and calm, you won’t have a hard time doing this. It’s a good way to test your reflexes, too!
Rate: P300 to 500 per hour
Where: Station 1
5. Cliff Diving
And finally, what better way to maximize your Boracay adventure than by cliff diving? Get to feel the wind in your hair, and make a big splash in the waters! You can do this at Ariel’s Point in Station 1 where there are five different diving platforms, the lowest being 7 feet high, and the highest, 13 feet. If you don’t want to jump, you can still watch the divers and see Boracay from one of its highest peaks.
Rate: P1,600 per person, including outrigger ride, lunch buffet, unlimited drinks, snacks, and use of diving/watching amenities.
Where: Ariel’s Point, Station 1
What are you waiting for? Don’t waste time just lounging or swimming. Try these cool activities, and your time in Boracay would surely be worthwhile!
