What to Do in Boracay Island

Activities in Boracay revolve around the fantastic beaches. If you fancy heading inland, hiring a motorbike or bicycle to explore the island is an opportunity to experience the remotest scenery that most visitors don’t get to see. For nature lovers, Boracay has a few hiking and trekking routes to its peak elevation, Mount Luho. Alternatively, horse riding on the beach is often a favourite activity among visitors here.

But it’s at sea that you’ll find the most exciting things to do in Boracay. Equipment for water sports activities such as jet skiing, windsurfing, parasailing and more are available for rent at stores along Bulabog and White Beach. Also, there are many mobile stalls or roaming vendors on the beach that offer snorkelling, diving and island-hopping trips around the island at reasonable cost.
