    Tennis

    Tennis Courts @  T & T

    This is not actually a sport I'm any good at, but some of my friends do go regularly, and seem to thoroughly enjoy themselves. I'm told the courts are in need of a bit of repair. It costs P150 per hour to play.

    Equipment: You can rent equipment from T & T, or bring your own.

    Skimboarding

    Whoosh!

    Surf along the shoreline in the shallow water on a wooden board. I've watched this sport take off in a big way in Boracay in the last couple of years. If you want to join the fun, just get chatting to some of the guys and they'll help you get started. Be prepared to fall unceremoniously on your butt numerous times!

    Equipment: You can buy boards from the little shop next to Bom Bom Bar (between boat stations 2 and 3).

    The clear, placid waters of Boracay are ideal for kayaking - whether you're an absolute novice looking to splash around on the beach or an experienced paddler ready to take off on a round-the-island voyage.
    Kayaking in the shallows will give you amazing views of the coral reefs, and you can also do a spot of beach-hopping.

    Equipment: There are several outlets along the White Beach where you can rent a kayak, including Scuba World.

    Sailing and etc...

    sailing

    The place offers a whole lot of sport and beach activities, so there's no room for boredom. Sailing, paragliding, banana boat ride, flying fish ride, jet skiing, diving, snorkeling.....anything you could think of, its here. Or even if your not very keen on water sports, you can also play frisbee with your mates or if not beach volleyball. I've seen a Men and Women's rowing team, but i'm not too sure if its open to everybody who wants to join in.

    banana boat

    That's me, my papa, and my cousins, waving to the camera just before the boat speed off to take us to the deeper part of the sea. We were so excited, as we do not know what to expect. Everyone is made to wear a life vest, and given a small briefing on what to do and a little of what to expect before setting off. Lab..dub..lad..dub...i could here my heart beating with excitement!

    Boracay Island, Philippines

    There are beautiful snorkelling spots around Boracay island....
    The caretakers will ask for a fee once you snorkel in a protected area...
    Be careful with the water though... they can be pretty rough...

    Equipment: Snorkel gear and life vest

    If you are in groups you can create small teams and play beach volley ball. Volley ball posts are well located along the beach, not sure though about where to get the nets. heheh. Or if you are confident and outgoing enough, or even just for fun, make yourself available and volunteer to join the locals and/or fellow travellers for an exciting fun-filled game. At the least, be a cheerful spectator.

    Wild and windy Bulabog

    fly high boracay

    Walk a kilometer away opposite White Beach and you'll find a totally ironic place. Bulabog Beach is a secluded beach for extreme sports such as windsurfing and kiteboarding. It is really fun watching those balloons, parachutes and kites decorating the skies across Bulabog. The area is best to try out these wind-dependent sports because it is on a blue lagoon, very shallow. Even kids can get their first lessons because the water is either knee or waist-deep.

    Speed Boat Dingy Thing

    by paula_p Written Dec 30, 2004

    Not sure of the name of this thing, but it is a big yellow dingy pulled by a speed boat. There is room for only 3 people and it is a BLAST. It's super difficult to hang on b/c the driver of the boat is trying to throw you - it adds to the fun? Anyway, if one person flies off, you all go and take my advice, make sure you close your mouth! We drank a gallon of water every time we got flipped. We also couldn't properly close our thighs for 2 days after gripping so tightly to hang on... Enjoy.

    Equipment: Life vests - they are provided.

    My daughter really wanted to ride a horse so we went to the stables. Since neither of us knew how to ride we paid for a handler to lead our horses. They took us on a one hour tour up to Mt. Luho for some spectacular views. Along the way, my daughter and were able to see the locals in their communities.

    Equipment: Wear shoes if you brought them.

    Scuba diving

    Calypso Diving Resort, Boracay

    This was one of my main reasons for going to Boracay. I did my diving at the Calypso Diving Resort and arranged it from England through Whitetip Divers in Manila (www.whitetip.com).
    I enjoyed diving here. For one, there were very few divers when I went. On a lot of dives it was just me and the diving instructor which sure beats being on a crowded dive boat.
    There is a good mixture of diving and most sites are only a short boat ride away from the island. Another nice thing is that you only have to walk across the beach to get from the dive shop to the beach. No early pick ups and long drives to the local harbour. There is a good drift dive in one of the channels between Boracay and a neighbouring island. Other sites have a good range of tropical fish and coral. Yapak 2 is the most challenging dive I have ever attempted - in fact it took 2 attempts as I ran into a few problems on my first attempt. It is a deep dive and a fast descent is required. Currents can be strong and therefore experience is required. However, you will have the chance to see some of the bigger stuff.

    Equipment: I took only a mask and rented everything else.

    You can go Snorkeling; ride the Banana boat, go Surfing, go Scuba diving, trekking, golfing and have fun Dancing.
    Some sports competition had been held in Boracay like the International Volleyball competition and International Surfing competition. It has become a popular place to hosts beach side sports competitions

    Beach volleyball is a popular activity among the young ones, teenagers, and even adults.

    Equipment: There is already a volleyball net on the beach; you just have to rent the volleyball if you didn't bring one.
