Duration: 6 1/4 hours
Tour Code: brc-001
Spend a carefree day at one of the world’s most spectacular beaches, an idyllic setting where you can enjoy the sand and sea in whatever way you wish.
After tendering from the ship, you will soon step ashore at Boracay, a beautiful speck of an island just 4.5 miles long. While the origin of its name isn’t certain, Boracay may derive from the Philippine word for “white cotton,” a reference to the powdery beaches here.
Upon arriving at the Discovery Shores resort, you will be warmly welcomed and directed to its appropriately named White Beach. This pristine stretch of sand is so gorgeous that it has certainly contributed to Boracay being recognized as one of the world’s best tropical islands.
You will enjoy approximately four hours at the northern end of White Beach, doing whatever you please. You might relax in the shade under a coconut palm, stroll the talcum-soft sand, or stretch out on a towel in the radiant sun. Although White Beach is known for the tranquility of its setting, there are plenty of available activities.
The possibilities include windsurfing, kite boarding, parasailing, jet-skiing and banana boat rides, all for rental. But don’t feel obliged to do anything more ambitious than relaxing on the beach, which is rimmed by the warm waters of the Sulu Sea. In time, a delightful lunch will be served at Discovery Shores, after which you will return to the ship.
