With its powdery white sands, azure waters, and stunning golden sunsets, it’s hard not to fall in love while in Boracay. No wonder it’s a favorite place for people who want to spend special moments with their loved ones. If you want to feel the love and warmth of the season, here are some things you can do in Boracay on Valentine’s Day.
You can chill out by drinking some bubbly at the beach.
It's never too early or too late to chill at the beach. An alcohol kick might help spark the romance between you and your lover. While basking in the sun, you can grab a bottle of wine or champagne and share it with your lover. If you prefer something more refreshing, then you can have a frozen cocktail from the many beachfront bars in Boracay. If alcoholic drinks are not your thing, thirst-quenching fruit shakes and juices are your other options. You can sip your drink and chill while enjoying the relaxing view of White Beach.
Enjoy an intimate time together while watching the sunset.
You can catch different hues of the sunset each day during your stay on the island. Make those sunset sessions with your special someone more memorable by renting a paraw (double outrigger sailboat). Go for a romantic sail on the sea as the sun kisses the waters. While sailing, you might as well seal your date with a kiss!
Where to go: You can spend twilight at Diniview Villa Resort in Diniwid Beach. Here, you can enjoy the quiet surroundings while getting a full view of the sunset as you gulp down your favorite drink.
By calming both your body and mind, love may flourish even more. Spark more romance by choosing a spa package where you both could spend more time with each other. There are a lot of relaxing spas in Boracay which allow you and your lover to release negative energies and stressful vibes.
A classic way to celebrate Valentine’s Day is by treating your partner to a special romantic dinner. Most resorts on the island offer special dinner packages to save you time from planning. Enjoy a sumptuous meal with other couples or, better yet, have a private candlelit dinner and relish each other’s company. To make your date more romantic, you can also watch a fireworks display.
Where to go: You can enjoy an intimate dinner with Discovery Shore’s date night package.
Budget: Starts at PhP1,500
5. Try out extreme adventure activities together.
You can get your adrenaline pumping on Valentine’s Day.
Trying out some extreme activities could help form a stronger bond between couples. With that said, why not jump off a cliff together? You could also learn how to fly a kite at a kiteboarding school or try the various diving spots on the island. You can even scream your heart out together on a reverse bungee jump. If you’re up for an adventure in the skies, another option is to rent a helicopter and fly around the island.
In Boracay, you can always make your Valentine’s Day extra romantic. Whether in a quiet, relaxing way or with a splash of adventure, your day of hearts is sure to be memorable.
Stay safe as you travel! Make sure to follow social distancing protocols and observe health precautions wherever you go. Have a great trip!
