A small island in the Western Visayas region of the Philippines, Boracay is primarily known for its beaches, vibrant nightlife and rich waters for watersport enthusiasts.
Boracay’s main beach, often referred as White Beach, is divided into three parts: Station 1, Station 2 and Station 3. At Station 1’s where the luxury hotels and other premium facilities are at, while Station 2 is known as the food and party hub. If you are looking for privacy, head to Station 3, the quietest part located at the southernmost corner of Boracay.
Here are ten things that make this one of the Philippines’ most popular beach destinations:
1. Get a rush from cliff diving
At Magic Island, a popular cliff-diving site just a few minutes away from the beach, there are diving boards that stand 4.5m-9m high, which you can access with a minimal entrance fee of US$3 (about $4.20).
The fee includes unlimited use of the diving boards, but excludes protective gear such as life vests. Guests are advised to bring their own or rent from shops at White Beach before taking the dive.
Magic Island can be reached via boat from Station 1. It’s open from 6am-6pm.
