Boracay Island Things to Do: 433 reviews and 878 photos


There will be guys on the beach approaching you to ask if you want to go for a boat ride. They can be quite pushy but nicely say you'll find them if you're ready to go on one.
It's worth it. They'll take you around the island and stop at beaches on the other side if you ask them to or anchor somewhere for you to get off to snorkel. It shouldn't cost you more than $20 for a 4 hour ride maybe in a boat for 4 people.
There's another island close to Boracay where we got off to take photos...the sand isn't as fine and last year there were no overnight accommodations but you can go in and around some caves on the island.
