The island paradise of Boracay is known for its white sands, crystal clear waters, breathtaking scenery and active nightlife. However, aside from those things mentioned, there are other attractions that you can visit and enjoy in Boracay.
Philippine Beach Holidays came up with a list of more attractions that you shouldn’t miss when you visit the island of Boracay. Check them all out:
- MOUNT LUHO
See Boracay at a whole new perspective. Mount Luho is the highest peak in Boracay that’ll give you the amazing view of the island’s east coast. This mountain is 100 meters high above sea level. To get there, head to Barangay Bulabog, then you can either hike or use a motor transport to get to the viewpoint.
You’ll have to pay an entrance fee of PhP 120 per head for the maintenance of the place. But it’s definitely worth it once you finally get there.
- WILLY’S ROCK
This castle-like, volcanic formation is the most photographed landmark in Boracay. Located offshore, in the shallow water near Boat Station 1, Willy’s Rock served as a sanctuary to a statue of the Virgin Mary in the island.
- CRYSTAL COVE
This privately owned 2.5 hectare island is one of the attractions that you shouldn’t miss when you’re in Boracay. You’ll be charged PhP 200 per person for the entrance fee and you’ll be given an hour to tour the whole place. Take Instagram worthy photos, snorkel and feed the fishes, feed the pigeons and take photos with them.
- BAT CAVE
Tourists need to go on a hike through the forest in order to get to the bat cave attraction. It’s home to small cave and fruit bats in the island of Boracay. Located at the western part of the island, the bat cave is popular among photographers and nature lovers.
- BORACAY BUTTERFLY GARDEN
Visit a butterfly garden by the beach. The Boracay Butterfly Garden, established in 2002, is one of the attractions that’s located in Bulabog Beach just five minutes away from D’Mall. The garden serves as the home to more than 150 plant species, and more than 200 kinds of tropical Philippine butterflies. You also get to purchase plants and handicrafts upon your visit.
- CROCODILE ISLAND
This island is called crocodile island not because it’s inhabited by crocodiles, but it’s because of the island’s appearance that resembles a crocodile from afar. The island is 10-15 minutes away from the port, but the trip will give you a good look of the vast waters and the island from a distance.
The island will charge you 20 pesos for the environmental fee. As part of your visit there, you’ll be given 30 minutes to snorkel and see the beauty underwater. However, the snorkeling goggles provided are improvised so it’s best to just bring your own. The best part of the visit is when you get to feed the fishes.
These are just few of the attractions that you can visit when you go to Boracay. Did we miss other attractions in Boracay? Share to us in the comment section below. For more beach holiday posts, visit Philippine Beach Holidays.
