Though the pandemic is still present in the country, things are starting to go back to the way they used to be, albeit slowly, especially for the tourism sector. 

A lot of areas, particularly local destinations, have started accepting tourists once again, which means you’ll be able to pick up where you left off when it comes to travel plans. 

Just last month, Boracay, one of the top tourist attractions in the Philippines, announced its re-opening to tourists, which includes visitors-to-be from areas under MGCQ, GCQ, and the National Capital Region (NCR) that is now under Alert Level 3.

However, requirements and guidelines should be followed and submitted before entering the island. You can access the list by clicking here

Now, if you’re wondering how to spend your time when you arrive on the island, then you’ve come to the right place. 

Below, we’ll be curating the top places to visit and things you shouldn’t miss out on while you’re on Boracay holiday. So, start taking notes and create your itinerary!

  • Book Yourself an Island Hopping Tour

One of the things that Boracay Island is known for is its pristine and prime beaches – blessed with both white sand and clear blue waters. With that said, it’ll be unfortunate if you only get to visit one. 

So, why not go and explore others? If you’re up for the challenge, the best way to go about it is to book yourself an island-hopping trip! You can easily find package tours offering this particular experience, just like this Boracay Tour Package (Island Hopping) that Klook offers.

If you want to make the last day of your stay in Boracay unforgettable, then you better get yourself to Bulabog Island and try your hand at kitesurfing!

Kitesurfing is considered an extreme sport where you use a power kite to hall yourself across the water. It’s a combination of different water sports like paragliding, surfing, windsurfing, skateboarding, snowboarding, and wakeboarding.
