Consistently named one of the best islands in the world, Boracay is back in full swing after a six-month closure in 2018. With stricter environmental guidelines now in place – including a no smoking, drinking or eating policy along the beach – there’s no better time to enjoy the island’s wondrous natural attractions. The 4km stretch of White Beach may be Boracay’s most iconic spot, but there are 13 other beaches in the area that you can explore.
Ride a local paraw sailboat
There’s no better way to enjoy Boracay’s sunset than on a local paraw (sailboat). These can be rented to explore other parts of the island, and most people book late afternoon cruises just to be closer to the sunset. Paraws can hold up to eight passengers (at around $22 per person), so this is a great activity to enjoy with family and friends. Book a paraw boat at the Station 1 and 3 activities reception booths, and be sure to show up at the pickup points at least 15 minutes before sailing.
