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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
