  Paraw Sailing
by bike_packer

Paraw is the native outrigger boat fitted with sails. The open area between the outriggers and the main hull are fitted with net making it as the more comfortable and exciting area to stay while sailing. Much more, this serves as place to put some weight (the passengers) when heeling happens as the wind blows harder - and zooommm you go.

Almost a hundred of paraws (with a crew of 2) are for rent by the White Beach at P500/hour. I consider this activity as generally safe and relaxing. Just be sure to wear the provided lifevest.

Nothing beats the fascination of sailing them into the sunset . The traffic at 5pm onwards is really heavy, I observed, making them very graceful subjects when taking sunset photos.

Address: White Beach, Boracay
