Boracay has now opened its white and sandy shores to Western Visayas tourists.

The novel coronavirus pandemic has not only posed a severe threat to public health but has also disrupted the tourism economy.

Now that restrictions begin to ease in the top tourist destination, exciting water activities can be added in your itinerary! After all, there is more to do on the island than just sunbathe and swim. Scroll through the article and find thriving tours and activities to do after the quarantine ends!

With stand up paddling, you won’t be pressured into learning a lot of physical movements before you get to enjoy the activity. If you master the basics of balancing on top of any surface, you can rent a board and have lessons for around PhP1,000. Tag along with a friend (or a lover) on the crystalline sea and navigate the board around the sea for a calming experience. But if you want to spend some alone time with yourself, the best time to paddle is during sundown.

3. Banana Boat Ride
