The famous Boracay Island has been awarded as the best island in the world by Travel + Leisure. With its powdery white sand, picturesque sunsets, countless recreational activities and alluring nightlife, it comes as no surprise why sun worshippers worldwide flock to this small island year after year.
Ariel’s Point is an eco-adventure destination where adrenaline junkies and nature lovers can go cliff diving, kayaking and snorkeling in an unspoiled tropical paradise in Boracay, 45 minutes away from White Beach by boat. The Huffington Post recently listed Ariel’s Point as one of the top cliff diving destinations in the world, and the daytrip package has been recommended by Fodor’s Travel.
Daytrips are offered seven days a week (if weather and sea conditions permit), depart once a day from Ariel’s House at 11:15 AM, and return to Boracay’s White Beach at 5:00 PM.
Yapak Beach (Puka Shell Beach)
Along the northern shores of Boracay is the pristine 800-meter Yapak Beach, more popularly known as Puka Beach for its plethora of white sand coupled with puka shells, a naturally occurring bead-like seashell. These are perfect for making necklaces, bracelets, house ornaments, and handicrafts which are conveniently sold in shops around the beach. The peaceful respite with its waters’ many shades of blue is just minutes away from Boracay’s White Beach.
Lauded on several “World’s Best Beaches” lists, Boracay’s picture-perfect shores are blanketed by powder-soft white sand, with a world-famous sunset lined with pretty silhouettes of paraw sail boats. The most popular stretch is its four kilometer-long White Beach, the most happening place in Boracay, backed by a string of resorts, spas, restaurants and bars that are divided into three stations. The sprawling D’Mall in Station 2 makes shopping in the island a unique experience, with recreational activities for kids of all ages. At night, the velveteen sand of White Beach transforms into a pulsating dance floor for the island’s exotic nightlife.
The neighboring Diniwid Beach in Boracay is a 200-metre escape, about 10 minutes away from the crowds in White Beach. It can be reached via a scenic footpath that cuts through a cliff at one end of White Beach. Guests looking for privacy will enjoy the exclusivity that the beach has to offer. A hill at the northernmost end of Diniwid Beach is well worth climbing for a rewarding view of the island.
