1. Take to the water
Boracay's native paraw sailboats are made for these clear waters, and there's no better way to experience the island's magic than aboard a sunset cruise -- the sails billowing in the breeze, the bow skimming over the waves toward a blazing sunset.
A paradise for water sports, Boracay is the place to practice old tricks or learn new ones. Partner up for a kitesurfing or scuba lesson, descend into the deep with a helmet diving excursion, soar into the sky on a parasailing adventure, or try your hand at paddleboarding on the tranquil rivers of nearby Panay Island.
