Boracay Island is one of the top beach destinations in the world. It is famous for its white, fine sand and crystal blue water. In addition to that, Boracay has also one of the best sunset views in the world.

Here are the top five activities that you can try when you are in Boracay for a holiday:

1. Helmet diving. Dive down under the sea with a helmet putting pressure for you to remain submerged in the water. While under the sea, you will be seeing various kinds of colorful fishes. You will be able to walk around the sea shore, and if you want to go back to the water surface, just give a “thumbs up” signal.
