Island Hopping in Boracay

 
 
Island hopping (Actually, since we were touring just one island -Boracay, the correct term really, should be: Beach Hopping.) was obviously the best way to see Boracay.  For only P1500-P2000 (depending on how good you haggle) you can get a small boat that fits 4-5 people and go on beach hopping.
 
 


D' Pacman Boracay Mansion (very impressive)!


Coconut ("Buko") costs about P100 bucks along the White Beach. 
Hubby got his from a hawker on a row boat at 3 for P100 (still expensive considering you can get it for a little over P20 in Manila, but somehow, on a banca, buko juice seems to taste better :P).


My son loving the view...


Lovely-lovely sight!


Breath taking...


The seawind has a very calming effect...


My youngest wants to try snorkeling and fish feeding...
 

The entire tour included snorkeling and visits to 2 beaches (Giligiligan and Puca) and lasted for a little under 3 hours.  
 
After snorkeling and fish feeding, we were taken to the first beach on our list:
 
Giligiligan is secluded.  We had the entire beach to ourselves ~ it was just us and the beach (pure serenity). Water was calm and crystal clear, although sand here was slightly rough compared to the White Beach.  My boys enjoyed Giligiligan - away from the noisy and crowded White Beach.
 
  The second beach Puca we went to was a haven for pasalubong shoppers.  The boys didn't like it here, but I did... I had so much fun checking the shops. And ended P1500 poorer and about a pound or so heavier (pasalubong on hand).  Goods are cheaper here in Puca compared to D'Mall, but a little higher compared to D'Talipapa.
