    Getting Started
    1 more image

    A handful of dive shops dot the stretch of White Beach offering down from the basic beginner PADI-accredited courses just by the shore and/or up to the adventurous professional dives at nearby dive spots dotting the water around Boracay.

    Around Boracay and the surrounding islands/islets are well recommended dive spots.

    Equipment: It is no problem to find and rent scuba equipment in the island which the shops have a-plenty to offer that suits anybody's preference.

    First stop in our island hop tour is the snorkeling area near Crocodile Island, considered as one of the better snorkeling spots in Boracay. This is a 15-minute boat ride away from Bulabog beach, east of Boracay Island.

    We had to pay P20 for “snorkeling fee” and rental of snorkeling gear is P100.

    I had a blast! I absolutely enjoyed seeing all kinds of fishes around me. It was fun being around these critters during a bread-feeding frenzy. Tickles a bit too.

    Did it lessen my fear for open water? – NO!

    Equipment: A very important tip is to bring A LOT of bread. Apparently, they also like pandesal in the morning like Filipinos do. :-)

    beach ultimate

    ultimate!

    every summer the PUA holds their annual summer beach ultimate tournament in boracay, the boracay open, usually in the month of either February, March or April. Ultimate is basically frisbee for the uninitiated. boracay has its own team, the boracay dragons, who are the best and (as far as i remember) remain unbeaten in their home turf. teams from all over the philippines and as far as australia converge in boracay for the weekend tournament and its fun to watch these guys (and girls) run around in the sand chasing a disc. matches are done during the day and don't forget to stay for the partying done at night!

    Equipment: a frisbee is all you need.

  • Beach Volleyball

    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.

    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.

    Island Hopping and Snorkeling

    by pres_16 Written May 16, 2007

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I have done snorkeling around the island on the first time I've set foot in Bora. This activity was part of our all day island hopping tour. Seeing the many corals around the island and the multi-colored fishes was really fun and delightful.

    The island tour includes a stopr over at Puka Beach which was equally beautiful as the White Beach. We had our lunch here before going on with the tour.

    Equipment: Snorkeling gears can be rented from the boat operators. Life vests are available at the boat. The activity costs me a total of P750.00.

    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.

    Frisbee is another favorite activity on the beach. It is best done during early mornings or sunset when it is not so hot. No expense if you bring your own frisbee.

    Equipment: Bring your own frisbee or buy from hawkers on the beach

    if you love beach volleyball, there's a lot going on in boracay. if there are no games, all you have to do is start one and a lot of people will join you afterwards.

    there's a net opposite hey jude in station 2 and a few more nets opposite nigi nigi in station 1.

    Equipment: bring your own ball as the prices in boracay for a beach volleyball can be a bit steep though you can find cheap ones in station 3.

    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.
