Here are a few survival tips that you should know when you spend your holiday in Boracay Island. Follow these, and indulge in a perfect getaway in this tropical island.
You have no right to be choosy with the transportation available in the island.
I'm not saying it's bad, but the main means of transportation in the island is a motorized tricycle. This serves as a taxi, which can take you to any point in the island. You can also rent a scooter or a mountain bike if you want more freedom with your short trips around the vicinity. If you are looking to explore the waters around Boracay then you can rent a native sailboat or a motorized outrigger boat to visit the beaches around this paradise. These are very cheap too so it won't hurt your budget at all.
Visit the beaches around the island, or you'll miss half of your life.
Boracay Island is very popular for its powdery white sands and clear water. If you don't visit the beaches around the island while you're there your trip will not be complete. The White Beach is a long beach where the commercial establishments are. Puka Beach will let you experience the quiet tropical empty island that you are probably dreaming of.
Islands as beautiful and pure as Boracay are rare nowadays, so might as well unleash the adventurist in you! You can go cliff diving, snorkeling, scuba diving, parasailing, horse riding, kite boarding, skim boarding, white water rafting, trekking, kayaking or even explore a bat cave. This is not for the faint of heart but it can surely bring out the heart of adventure in anyone.
Take the time to relax.
Once you have tried out every adventure in the island that's available to you (and which you were brave enough to try), my next piece of advice is for you to take some time to relax. After all, what's a holiday on a stunning tropical island without a good massage or spa? Depending on your budget, there are different kinds of spa treatments that you can avail during your holiday in the island.
Eat and drink merrily
Boracay has a vast food and drink choices, and you can surely enjoy your getaway with its bars and restaurants sprawled in the island. This is the perfect place to enjoy cocktails as you watch the sunset by the beach, or to drink the night away in some beach bar with live music. Coffee shops and restaurants should also keep you full and satisfied within the day. It might be worth trying out the local delicacies while you are here!
