5 Activities Proving There’s More to Boracay Island Than Just Swimming

To most beachcombers, a holiday in a Boracay accommodation is always tantamount to a swimming getaway. This is why many head over to this part of the Philippine archipelago to cool down once the sun starts to shine the hottest, during the months of April and May. But what if you find yourself craving activities that do not actually require getting in contact with water? Whether you have a fear of swimming or an encounter with bad weather during your trip, you can guarantee that your holiday won’t be spoiled when you are here.

1. Getting a traditional massage

Catching up with other world-famous Asian massage techniques, Hilot is the ancient Filipino art of healing through the power of touch. And Boracay is among the best places to enjoy this. Indeed, savoring this local attraction while enjoying the calming sound of the waves can complete your vacation.

2. Getting inked with henna

It’s almost bizarre to come home from a holiday on the island without a henna tattoo. Fact is, this is one of the most popular products offered here, and a few pesos and a short time spent by the beach is all you need to get one. However, if you’re planning to have one on you, remember to not apply sunblock or any oil and moisturizer before getting painted on. This is if you want the temporary body art to properly stick to your skin.

3. Savoring fresh seafood

Never end any island getaway without having a plate of seafood. And here in Boracay, D’Talipapa is the best way to go if you are on the lookout for the largest, juiciest lobsters, prawns, oysters, squids, crabs, scallops, and more. Once you’ve purchased your fresh goods, you can head straight to your Boracay accommodation or to a restaurant of your choice and have the crew prepare your seafood lunch or dinner for you.

4. Swinging a club

Golfers can also find home here, because the island boasts some excellent, challenging courses. Among the sites that easily pass as any golf enthusiast’s haven is located north of Bulabog Beach. In this Boracay accommodation, you’ll have access to an 18-hole, par-72 championship course designed by Graham Marsh.

5. Partying all day and night

People, both young and old, travel to Boracay Island to experience the vibe that oozes out of its numerous bars. The slew of watering holes scattered all over the tropical paradise offer a kind of fun that most see as something that can’t be had elsewhere in the country. Some of the most visited party destinations here are Epic Boracay, Cocomangas Shooter Bar, Club Paraw, and Ariel’s House.
