Living in White Beach is satisfying on its own, but the less crowded corners of Boracay and nearby islands are worth exploring.

Most of these tourists sell Poka Shells, also known as Boracay’s Hidden Gem, for its unplanned and unobstructed shores.

Another must see is Crocodile Island, which is aptly named because it looks like a crocodile’s head from afar. Other tranquil beaches you can visit are Allegheny Beach and Lopes Beach.

Bolabaug Beach is the perfect place for parasailing, wind surfing, and kite racing. It is often regarded as the number 1 kite flying destination in Asia. Billabog Beach can be reached from White Beach in just 10 minutes.
Crystal Cove Island
Crystal Cove Island offers leisure activities. Explore both cubes to see the different types of interesting formations.
Go on a hike
Hiking enthusiasts will surely be pleased to know that Mount Lohoe, the island’s highest point, is open to the public for outdoor activities. Along the way, you can visit a wildlife park where you will find Philippine national birds, Philippine eagles, other species of birds, snakes, monkeys and wild cats. After that, you can continue to the viewing deck; here you can enjoy a 360-degree view of the entire island. This is a good prize after conquering the trail leading to the summit.
Be a mermaid
Boracay can make your imagination come true. Thanks to the Philippines Mermaid Swimming Academy. They offer mermaid swimming lessons that aim to familiarize participants with the mermaid tail. The classes last for 90 minutes and include a mini photo shot. If you decide to take your mermaid dreams to the next level, you can even continue with an advanced Mermaid Swimming Lesson and a Mermaid Performer Course!
Visit the mangrove nursery
Although the mangrove nursery is not far from Boracay’s main cave, it is still worth a visit for its refreshing views and commendable efforts in preserving the trees along the coast. Enjoy walking on wooden planks that serve as a boardwalk and then quench your thirst with Boko Juice service.
Enjoy a seafood treat
Don’t miss out on the chance to enjoy freshly caught seafood. You can visit the traditional wet market such as D’Talipapa. Here, you can buy the latest fish, shrimp, shrimp and other types of seafood, as well as meat products, vegetables, and other essential cooking ingredients. After purchasing, you can bring these raw materials to a restaurant known locally as Pluto and they will happily cook for you for a minimal fee. Budget travelers prefer this dining experience as it is cheaper to buy food in hotel restaurants. This is also a great opportunity to get closer to the local culture.
Try Boracay’s local dishes
Here are some local delights you don’t want to miss because you’re in Boracay. First, there’s the Kurizu Burger, a chorizo sandwich made in a sliced cheese. You can choose from a sweet or spicy sauce, or simply enjoy it. You can find it at Bourke White Beach, along with food stores, as well as other grilled foods such as the famous dried squid and chicken liver. For drinks, be sure to visit Jonah’s FruitShakes, a famous refreshment store that spans the island with different branches. They offer freshly made sweet smoothies like mangoes, bananas, strawberries, and my personal favorite avocado.
Experience the local Filipino trial cycle
The city government allows only a certain type of transportation on the island, and most tourists, as well as locals, use public transportation called the tricycle. This is a motorcycle connected to a sidecar, accessible wherever you are on the island. If you are a foreigner, I advise you to give it a try as it is very easy and it can fit in the same fun ride with the whole family!
Join the Pub Crawl
Without a nightlife experience, your boring holiday won’t be complete. One of the most exciting ways to do this is through Boracay PubCral, a hopping tour called the “Beach Party.” Hit the pubs, beach bars, and pumping clubs for free to start the party with a free entry for ten and ten shots. As an epic nightclub you also have to bring your own t-shirt.
Experience the full island
Boracay is a lively place, and I never get tired of visiting it again. The Philippines will welcome you with a warm hug and a big smile. The island is guaranteed to be an experience you’ll never forget. The locals will treat you like their brothers and sisters.
Boracay is a tourist destination favored by locals and foreign travelers. Boracay Islands are not far from exciting activities, whether along the coast or inland. You definitely have to come and experience them at least once in your life!
