For those interested in Scuba Diving and Diving Packages, there are literally dozens of Dive Centres along the White Beach; it is a good place to learn or to improve your skills. Cost is typically around $35 per dive which includes hire of all equipment.The dive centres operate a cartel and have agreed standard prices amongst themselves so prices will be the same at all centres. There are 25-30 dive sites within 10-15 minutes speed boat ride from the beach, suitable for beginners up to advanced level. Dives range from ‘Angol Point’ (10m), through ‘Crocodile Island’ (22-25m), a straightforward wall dive, up to ‘Yapak’- a deep wall dive suitable for only the most experienced divers due to strong currents, although there is the possibility of seeing sharks and stingrays.
Boat tours and Island Hopping
The best way to see the beauty of Boracay and its various beaches is by Paraw (native outrigger sailboat). You will be constantly asked if you want to take a boat trip, as there are literally dozens of companies offering this service. Also, a day trip to “Ariels Point” is a wonderful way to see what else is around Boracay. These can be organized through the BBC Resort at Station 1.
Boracay’s Bulabog beach is known as the best kitesurfing destination in Asia. The season runs from November through to April with onshore winds varying between 12-30 knots. The ocean lagoon (2km wide) is protected from waves by a coral reef. Water becomes almost flat on a low tide, making it easy to start learning to kitesurf and continue with freestyle tricks. Because of its perfect conditions, this location becomes crowded with riders in high season.
The stunning world class golf course of Fairways and Bluewater is every golfer’s dream of a perfect golf holiday. Offering well manicured greens with tropical gardens, you can play the 18 holes early and still be in time for brunch and liquid refreshments back at the clubhouse which has a welcoming social atmosphere.
