Boracay is more than just the main island everyone is familiar with the most. There are numerous smaller islands in the surrounding seas that are worth visiting. This is why “island hopping” is one of the top things to do in Boracay, especially for first-time tourists!
There are a large number of islands that you can visit, but there are definitely three islands that really set themselves apart. If you’ll be island hopping during your stay in Boracay, make sure you include these islands in your itinerary:
Puka Beach is a secluded beach in one of the smaller islands surrounding Boracay. Although the beach doesn’t have the iconic white sand of Boracay, what it does offer is more privacy. Puka Beach is remarkably quiet, allowing its guests to fully enjoy swimming in the crystal clear waters, sunbathing on the shore, and other activities. There are several eateries on the island for those who want to refresh themselves with an ice cold drink.
Ever wanted to try cliff diving? This is definitely the place to go if you want to give it a try. There are several cliff diving boards of varying heights on the island. An experienced cliff diver will be present to help out first-time thrillseekers stay safe. The island also has a beautiful garden for a few selfies for the ‘Gram. If you’re starting to feel hungry, the island also serves mouthwatering local dishes that are sure to hit the spot.
If snorkelling is your thing, you should ask your tour guide to take you to Crocodile Island. Despite its name, there are no crocodiles swimming in the waters around the island. What you’ll find, however, are a large number of fish and other marine life. Thanks to the pristine waters on the island, snorkelers can clearly see the serene beauty of underwater life, as well as take stunning photos with underwater cameras.
Interested in arranging an island hopping tour during your stay in Boracay? Once you check in at your hotel, let the front desk know that you’re planning to do island hopping and they’d be happy to arrange a private boat to take you around. Island hopping is about a half-day activity, so make sure you start early so you have enough time to rest up before exploring the Boracay nightlife!
