    the pool at Seawind

    by shohman Written May 13, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Why use a pool when you're on the most beautiful beach in the world? Consider this: across the street from Seawind resort you scale a long stairway and finally reach not one, but two beautiful pools, almost vacant, yet surround by beautiful plants, trees, and an herb garden. The pool alos has much shade, which is important as the beach gets very hot during the afternoon hours. The bonus, no kids! It's not that they aren't allowed, but the usually don't bother the climb when they have a perfectly good pool right outside their room.

    The powdery white sand, the warm water, the sunshine...the beaches here are among the best in the world and no matter what your idea of beach fun is, it can be had here. In this pic I am with my niece as she prepares to build a sand castle.

    Ariel's Point - Just Jump off!

    by Olivid Updated Apr 24, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I went on this awesome trip to Ariel's Point with fantastic cliff divining & jumping last month! Enjoyed swimming, snorkeling and exploring the Nature's Beauty of this vibrant land of Paradise! Some people were just sunning or resting in the shade of the flourishing gardens. Tasty huge barbeque buffet and unlimited drinks were included ;) ! I lived an unforgettable, memorable experience and had lots of Fun!

    Red Pirates Adventure

    by scarletf Updated Apr 21, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Red Pirates boat is a paraw boat that is using wind energy. Yes... no gas! Imagine the movie water world... thats what a paraw is. It is a simple boat with nets on the side and on that net - you will sit. Yes again… not inside the boat but on the sides. It is an adventure you must try because you will really feel the water, the waves and the wind. It’s a bit scary at first but eventually I learned to like it. Just like riding a roller coaster… it has an adrenalin rush. The Red Pirates crew is great tourist guide on the sea. By the way, if you are riding this boat, make sure your bag is water proof or else you’ll be sorry. In addition to that, constantly put sun block because the boat doesn’t have roof for you to hide from the sun.

    Exercise With The Boracay Dragons

    by cyndymc Written Apr 7, 2010

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While strolling in the beach early morning, I was attracted by some people exercising by the beach. I thought it was like the free aerobics exercise class in Luneta or Baywalk in Manila. I was told that the group was called the Boracay Dragons, a team basically composed of dragon boat rowers, hence the name Boracay Dragons. The Boracay Dragons are said to be unbeaten on the beach competitions, hence they are sometimes referred to as “The Beach Kings of Asia”.

    Some onlookers eagerly watched, while some joined in the exercise, and the Boracay Dragons didn't mind.

    Walk the beach strip from station 1 to station 3 or vice versa is what everybody does! Enjoy the sights, look out for the hotels to the side and take lots of pictures. Hungry or thristy? not to worry! there's always a place to buy refreshments as you walk along.

    Best Long Island I've had

    by iclee Written Jan 16, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It seems that is is too late to change your hotel. I suggest that you post your experience here when you come back from your trip so as to debunk or agree/update the other posts. :)

    I saw La Carmela, too, twice! It's not kind of resort. Beachfront property = only plus.

    Agree with the other post, go around and explore the island. Bat caves. lookout point, crocodile island, motorbike trek. There's a lot to do however the equipment rental prices are also to die for.

    I stayed at Nigi 1 and I must agree their English breakfast spread is enough to tide you until late afternoon. Homemade hash, fresh fruit, eggs done anyway you want(and any quantity you want), fresh fruit shake, bacon, toasted bread = English breakfast. Their bar is almost always full of foreigners swigging drinks.

    MUST TRY: Long Island Ice Tea in Nigi bar. Start early since Buy-1-Take-1 start at 5pm (? check with Nigi). You can order 2 drinks at once and you can stash the other drink till you finish the 1st one. Caveat: Long Island is served in a big (local sari-sari store) jar. My husband dranked 2 jars and ended up stumbling back to our cabin after rolling on the shore. Hahaha!

    Walk around boracay

    by Robyn_mikkel Written Dec 9, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We stayed in station 2. we went to the end of station 3..we witnessed the demolishing of some houses, the throwing of the teargas and the sort-of fire. The next day, we then went to the end of station 1. when we were near station 1, rain poured with thunder and lightning and since it's stil la long way from station 2 where we were staying, we were soaking wet by the time we got back to shenna's.

    by listenandlearn Written Nov 3, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Discovery Suits there are so many activities that will keep you continuing enjoying your holiday. For instance, they have the Swedish Massage ...just giving you an hefty ideaL An oiled massage of the muscular & soft tissues of the body which utilizes long, flowing kneading strokes. Perfect for relaxing tense & tired bodies(60 minutes) cost : about Pesos 900.00. All kinds of massage: Siatsu, which my husband loved. They have the lymphatic drainage massage: it's a gentle and specialized form of massage, they have more serious massage, it's the hot stone massage which I love!This costs me Pesos 1,200.00They also have the detoxifying body massage which my friend tried, although I found it a bit too expensive, so, I stayed with the simple forms of massage.I recall they do have a sea bronzing spa treatment which is the face, body massage it's quite exotic massage, so, I stay simple massage, which was a treat in itself.

    Station 1

    by machomikemd Updated Sep 15, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is where the Center of Action in Boracay, the main beach area, the main party area and the main booze area! You will find an Assortment of Bars (sorry, no porn like patong in phuket or pattaya!) and booze areas like Cocomangas, Bom Bom Bar, Hey jude and Juice. It is here where you will see the stereotypical drunk foreigners.

    Station 2

    by machomikemd Updated Sep 15, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Station 2 is a little bit less congested than Station 1 but not that much since it is here where you can find the famous restaurants and D'Mall (the only Mall in Boracay). Beach Wise, there is slightly less people but again Station 1 offers more space and privacy.

    Take Nothing But Photos!

    by sirenna Updated Aug 4, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Boracay is famous for its soft, powdery white sand, but sadly in recent years a great number of tourists have been collecting this precious sand in plastic bottles and removing it from the island. Some irresponsible people have even written tips on Virtual Tourist encouraging this practice! This might seem like no big deal - and when there were fewer tourists coming to Boracay it wasn't - but these days with literally thousands and thousands of people visiting the island every year, it is an activity which must be curtailed or the sand will be seriously depleted in a few years. Not only that, but the collection of sand is ILLEGAL.
    So please don't do it. Be an environmentally friendly tourist, don't drop litter, collect sand or corals or damage the environment. Refuse to buy shells or other wildlife products from market vendors.
    "Take nothing but photos, leave nothing but footprints, kill nothing but time!"
