Boracay Island Hopping!

What is island holiday without island hopping, right? I learnt bout this while 'island-ing' the past few trips.. and obviously, I did it in Boracay too!

There was the usual snorkeling activities in the deep blue sea, which always fascinates me. And after the snorkeling, there was the coconuts which came right from a seller from another boat.

One different activity however - was to try reef walking for the first time... where we put on the astronout like glass cover, then go down into the sea and then start walking - under the sea! Yes, with fishes swimming around (give them bread & they will come!). That was one unique experience! For a while, you can just imagine it's like in the movie haha!

boracay island hopping caveAnd then I had the option to visit this bat cave on the island. A short walk uphill and there was the cave with its stalagmite & stalactite. However, I didn't go in - not so much a cave lover when you have the sea not far away!

Anyway by then, it was already early evening and time to head back to the hotel... with beautiful pictures and wonderful memories.

*There's still much more of Philippines to come!


  1. Wow! Reef-walking looks so cool. No picture of the fishes down there?

    Awesome pictures, QC. The sotong soup looks so yummy! Hot and sourish, right? Is that sotong or some exotic food of the island? haha..

  7. The pictures gave me a tour, truly Boracay is the best spot for vacation and island hopping. No wonder why tourists like to choose the place, because aside from its white sand, we could also experience cool adventures and have a calming vacation.
