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.

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.
