Things to do in Boracay

Welcome to your island paradise! Boracay, Philippines is renowned for its beautiful beaches and world-class hospitality. Whether you are looking to extend your stay before or after Incognito Community Exchange, or simply want to know the best spots to soak up the sunshine, read on to learn about Boracay’s top attractions.

White Beach

This postcard-perfect 4km stretch of sand is the central hub of Boracay. Relax on the beach, cool off in the clear, turquoise waters, or take an excursion on a paraw (an outrigger sailboat). You can easily find great places to eat or enjoy a fruit-infused mojito or San Miguel beer overlooking a world-class view.

Scuba Diving, Snorkelling, and Water Activities

There are more than 20 dive sites within half an hour’s boat ride from the Shangri-La resort where you can explore colorful marine life. This includes the resort’s own marine sanctuary, just off the coast of the private beach, where scuba and snorkelling trips can be arranged for beginners as well as certified divers. The calm seas off the coast are perfect for cruises and sailing excursions, while jet skiing, kayaking, and other water activities are also available.

Surfing, Windsurfing, and Kitesurfing

If you want to explore further afield, Bulabog Beach on the eastern side of Boracay is home to the island’s watersports community and the best place to try out surfing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing.

Spa Treatments

Unwind after the conference with pampering at CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La Resort, open daily from 10am to 10pm. Located on a rocky peninsula looking out over a private bay, the detached spa village complex is designed to be a sanctuary within the resort. Appointments are recommended.
