5 fun things to do in Boracay, Philippines

Jump 15m at Ariel’s Point

Ariel’s Point is one of the top cliff jumping spots in Asia! There are a few stages of height to choose from, varying from 3m to 15m. You need to be a daredevil to hop off the highest point! The way down feels extremely long and exhilarating. This is a dream island to arrive at: free flow beers and beverages, BBQ buffet lunch, and snorkelling.

Diving at Camia shipwreck

In 2001, a cargo vessel named Camia II sank. This wreck dive spot is now popular with adventure divers. It’s a site for the advanced and the adventurous, with a maximum depth of 30m. The 30m-long vessel is home to a healthy underwater population of lion fish, snapper, grouper and bat fish.

Helmet diving

Non-divers, this is for you! Walk on the seabed and marvel at the marine life all around. You’ll breathe like you’re on land with a helmet that covers your entire head, supplying you with oxygen underwater. No fussing about with snorkels nor diving mouthpiece needed. Image by boracay.travel


Take a different vantage point of the best oceans in the world, enjoy the view from above! This is a popular activity that can’t be missed if you’re in Boracay. The lift-off is exciting and may incite some screams, but when you’re at the top: enjoy only peace and the most panoramic view ever.

Become a Mermaid

Why dive or snorkel for the fish when you can be the fish, right? Founded in Boracay, the Philippine Swimming Mermaid Academy offers multi-level classes for becoming certified mermaids! We are impressed by how intensive these classes and courses are. Non-certification photography is available as well.

Anna lives to explore. She loves digging toes into warm sand, diving, hugging trees, eating with locals, yoga and meditation. She enjoys stuffing her face with good food and prancing through back alleys of urban spaces. Some say Anna lives carelessly, she says "live wild, live carefree."
