Boracay beach in the Philippines
has been named one of Yahoo Travel's top beach destinations in the
world. The gorgeous white sand beaches, the variety of hospitable and
value-added resorts like Red Coconut Beach Hotel Boracay, the sheer abundance of things to do there -- it is no wonder this island is one of the country's top attractions.
Boracay truly has something for everybody. Here are five fun things you
might want to consider adding to your Boracay beach vacation itinerary
to make the experience truly memorable.
1. Go snorkeling. Hire a native outrigger canoe to bring you and
your companions to the best snorkeling areas where you can see and
interact with the fishes and other marine life in crystal-clear water.
The sight of some of the locals paddling on surfboards to bring you
inexpensive refreshments as you take a breather from snorkeling is a
novel experience too.
2. Get a henna tattoo. Feel like getting some body ink on you
but without the needles? Let the locals work their art on you with
henna. You can choose from their tattoo design catalogs, or ask the
artist to make a special design just for you.
3. Get a beach massage. There are several excellent health spas
in Boracay where you can have a luxurious massage. But getting one
right on the beach, right below the palm trees and hearing the sound of
the ocean, is such a refreshing experience as well.
4. Go souvenir-shopping. Boracay has plenty of stores where you
can buy local handicraft, food, and other souvenir items. Don't miss
the flea markets or stalls near D'Mall and those located on White
Beach's Boat Station 3. There are many interesting items you might want
to bring home with you, and sometimes you get big discounts. You just
need to brush up on your haggling skills.
5. Do a little bit -- or a lot! -- of watersports. There is no
shortage of activities in, on or above the water in Boracay. From
simple pleasures like wading in the shallows or doing a bit of
skimboarding to more daring activities like parasailing, diving, or
kiteboarding, you can count on getting yourself drenched and having fun
