Things to Do in Boracay

Boracay Island Attractions

There’s a wide range of things to do in Boracay. Sightseeing around the island can be compacted into one day or stretched out for several. A trip to Boracay is incomplete without visiting the famous volcanic formation, Willy’s Rock on White Beach. Bulabog Beach has a small butterfly garden exhibiting an interesting collection of wild butterflies and flowers.

To escape the crowded beaches, the pretty Puka Shell Beach in the north is less crowded than the other, more frequented beaches. Some people come here for a quiet afternoon picnic with a small group of family or friends. In the northeast, the small white-sand Baling Hai Beach has an impressive view from the cliff top at sunset. Please note that all the aforementioned things to see and do are just a few of the Boracay Island attractions, so get ready for an exciting holiday in the prime beach destination of the Western Visayas.
