The saying that the best things in life are free is indeed true in Boracay. You don’t have to shell out money to experience the best things in the island like its fine white sands, numerous beaches, amazing people, and breathtaking sunset. These are the main reasons why people keep coming back to the island.
At White Beach, you can check the famous rock formation you often see in postcards. The grotto more known as Willy’s Rock has the image of the Virgin Mary and some trees that grow in a rock. You can also go beach-hopping within the island. What makes it interesting here is how the sand for each beach differs. White Beach for example, is where you can find the white sand which Boracay is famous for. On the other hand, Puka Beach located on the northernmost portion of the island has coarse sand scattered with puka shells.
Another thing you can enjoy for free in the island is its stunning sunset. Here, no two sunsets are the same, so you’ll get a different treat every time the sun goes down.
For some more sightseeing, you can visit the deck in Mt. Luho where you can see a 360-view of the island. You can also commune with the Ati community, the indigenous people’s group known as the first settlers of Boracay. When visiting, make sure you coordinate with the tribe leader and the nuns who help manage the village.
