Boracay – How We Spent Day 2
Duration: 3-4 days (or more..)
Budget: ~Php10,000 (including seat-sale airfare to Caticlan), this increases as you extend your stay in the island
Bummers: prices of food in most restos are uber high
You’re life ain’t complete if you’ve never been to Boracay even for just one time..
Waking up in Boracay is one of the best stress-free experiences that I had. Since it was raining the day before, I was hoping that this day I would get a glimpse of Mr. Sun. However, I was wrong because I woke up to a morning drizzle.
The light rain stopped just in time for breakfast. We had breakfast by our veranda with the view of the shoreline. Then, we headed out for a swim and some helmet diving.
Helmet diving which is also called reef walking is Php500 pax. Again, make sure to haggle. You will be submerged 10 feet underwater for about 30 minutes and you can feed the fish there. A 25-kg helmet will be used as the breathing apparatus. Heavy? Nah, it will only weigh a couple of kilos underwater. The helmet is open in the bottom and some kind of fluid physics happens there because water does not fill up the entire helmet.
If you don’t have an underwater camera, don’t worry because they will take pictures of you and provide a copy in a CD.
After helmet diving, we had our lunch at Ole Spanish Tapas, Bar and Restaurant or simply Ole in D’Mall.
Then, we spent the whole day swimming by the beach. It was only during dusk when I saw Mr. Golden Sun for a while.
We ate dinner at Bite Club. This place is always full that’s why we wanted to try it. Luckily, a table was available for the five of us. Bite Club serves giant grilled burgers. Two to three people can share on a single order of burger. Btw, I realized it was the night of the supermoon which we noticed little of because it was still cloudy during that time.
The supermoon was not so super at that time. But it was good sight to see.
We walked by the shore for a while after dinner, had a cup of Starbucks, and headed back to our hotel. Yeah, we needed to try Starbucks in Boracay to compare it to the one we usually have in Manila. LOL.
Spread some awesome..ness..
