6 days to spend on a beach island may sounds long but in fact it is not. Time was spent frolicking under the sun and strolling the long stretch of beach. I can't emphasize how beautiful it is because you simply have to experience it for yourself!!
Half of the day was spent at another traveller's attraction - The Ariel's Point. It is a cliff overlooking the sea which 5 diving points for you to throw yourself in.
We took a ferry to the cliff area which took about 30 - 45 mins. For more info on ticketing and the attraction, visit their website, Ariel's Point. I was very nervous about cliff-jumping because of the fear I had of not being strong enough to swim up. Nevertheless told myself to try it out.
We're reaching!! Seems like a very forested area right? It feels like a big private party there with hammocks and the latest hits booming from the speakers. The ticket pricing includes free flow of beverages (beer included) and food.
We walked through a small cave before reaching the peak of the cliff. The view was gorgeous of course.
There was many Caucasian amongst the group and they were daredevils who were the first that did the cliff jump. We reckon that they have had similar experiences in their home town based on the movies.. true?
It was a playground with 5 diving areas - 1m, 3m, 5m, 10m & 15m.
Apart from cliff jumping, canoeing and snorkelling is available too! It was my first time canoeing and I enjoyed it. Where else can do this sport??
DRUM ROLL TO THE MAIN FOCUS OF THE TRIP: CLIFF JUMPING
This is where I stood after contemplating for many hours. The 3 metres mark. Didn't have the courage to jump from any higher points. Maybe the next trip, I'd pluck up my courage to do the (im)possible.
To me, it was a feat for my first time. The buddies are truly #yoloadventurers who tried all the sites. Let the pictures below speak for themselves. B jumped from 3m, 5m and 10m.
15m one is the wooden plank behind this 10m one.
We left the cliff around 5pm, after about 5 hours of 'action'. It was a good time relaxing and reflecting on the trip. Sat through a rocky ride due to bad currents, and the towels that we used to cover ourselves were soaking wet when we got back.
Here's our first and only group jump-shot. It was perfect angle and scenery. The sun was setting, the tide was low and the atmosphere was just right.
Enjoyed a simple and quiet night after an afternoon of wildness.
Boracay Day 4
On the middle of the trip, I felt somewhat bored because we did most water sports except those that we tried before and didn't want to pay a high price for (i.e: banana boat and parasailing).
To kill time, we went around looking for other activities to do - ended up with Go Kart & scuba diving plans (for next day)
Reached back to Station 1 around late afternoon and enjoyed street snacks and enjoyed the sunset. It is a joy to see him happy. You'll realise that happiness is one of the most importance factor in life once you grow older.
Four of us shared a bottle of hard liquor. So much fun with games that I lost myself.
Love living the life that I missed. There's unlimited things that I can do but have never tried.
