Additional fees to be collected for water sports activities
Those who want to enjoy water sports activities will need to add a little more to their budget. This is due to the additional fees asked for those using the pontoon . The pontoon or the floating device are used by operators to dock their boats for water sports activities such as island hopping, banana boat ride, fly fish, among others. Every person using the pontoon is required to pay PhP30 per person. There are two pontoon areas at the White Beach, and these are in Station 1 and in Station 3.
Hotel and Resort Booking Status: Mostly fully booked
The New Year is considered a super peak season in Boracay . This means hotel rates are higher by at least 30 percent due to high demand. There are still some establishments that have vacant rooms but are more expensive. Walking in is not possible, too, as a booking confirmation is needed by those who want to enter the island.
No fireworks for New Year celebrations
There will still be no fireworks display in Boracay this coming New Year. It’s because the Local Government of Malay failed to receive the approval of the Boracay Inter-Agency Task Force to do the annual fireworks display at the White Beach. Instead of Boracay, the display will be held at Barangay Balusbos in mainland Malay. The banning of fireworks has been implemented since the island’s reopening last year.
