How to Enjoy Boracay during Rainy Season?

Starting from April to May, summer in the Philippines begins; right around when Lenten season starts, too. Usually, local and foreign tourists love to have their vacation on the beach while others like to go to places with pretty cool temperature even in a very hot weather like Baguio and Tagaytay. When we talk about the beach, Boracay Island in Aklan is the number one summer destination in the Philippines.

Water and land activities are common ways to enjoy the beach and the heat from the sun. For backpackers like me, this is what we call paradise. But then again, for backpackers like me, summer season, also known as peak season, is a bit expensive for us. This is also the reason why others may see Boracay as a “it’s too expensive” vacation. For travelers and tourists with strict budgets who want to enjoy Boracay, off-peak season is the best time for us. Off-peak season starts around July to October. Yes, we all know that these months are also the rainy season; that’s why it was called off-peak season; the inquiries for travel agencies are very low (alternatively, low season). Why is this the best time to travel? Because the price for Boracay accommodations and packages is cut to almost or more than half of its original price while in peak season, prices raise to double. During low season, the cheap Boracay deals are flooding around the internet! If you want a cheaper price, try to walk-in and haggle for hotel accommodation (Hello fellow kuripots! Haha). Another good thing is the numbers of tourist around the beach can count with your two bare hands, so you might enjoy the beach alone and you can also do all you wanted without any hesitation.

But how can we enjoy Boracay when it’s actually raining? Worry no more my friend, that’s why I made this article—for you to know how. Check out this list of activities that you might enjoy even when raining. Enjoy!

Kissing under the rain is romantic, but Swimming under the rain is much fun! The extreme challenge of freezing is fun! (Yes, it is)

Underwater activities. Rain doesn’t matter for underwater activities so you can do Helmet diving, and snorkeling. Watch the beautiful corals and fishes as they swim toward to you when you give them food, which is mostly stale bread.

Do the Zorbing! Why is Zorbing fun when raining? Because you’re going to roll downhill in a wet and slippery slope so it will double the speed of the Zorb.

Windsurfing and Parasailing. Since this water sport activities require the participation of the wind, this is more exciting to do when it’s raining where there’s a chance of strong wind; just be ready to be freeze (haha). Can you take the challenge?

*Safety reminder: Avoid doing outdoor activities during heavy rain where the wind might cause a heavy wave. It could get very dangerous. Strong winds for air activities maybe fun, but don’t risk your life if you can see the danger along the way. Don’t worry; there are many indoor activities that you can also enjoy.

I’m pretty sure that your vacation is all about trying interesting activities. Be amazed with the mesmerizing view of the white sand beach, enjoy, eat delicious delicacies, and relax; now is your chance to do so.

Massage. There’s nothing more relaxing than taking a massage while raining.

Foodtrip. In every corner of the beach there are many restaurants, bars, and food stands. Have you ever tried a Longga-burger (Longanisa burger)? This is made of slightly sweet and spicy pork sausage grilled over charcoal. The unique taste of this burger is only available at Boracaylocal food stands.

  1. […] It’s great to have your vacation during holidays of the year and summer vacation, but actually, going to the beach on those seasons is like a beautiful nightmare on your pocket. So go on a vacation during Low Season where cheap Boracay packages are all over the internet and Boracay accommodations are almost half of the original price unlike during Peak Season and High Season where all the prices are more than doubled or even tripled. Since Low Season is also known as the rainy season, the number of tourists around the beach aren’t as many. That’s also the reason why travel agencies are giving away many promos just to have inquiries. If you are worrying about going to the beach while raining, you must read my article about How to Enjoy Boracay during Rainy Season. […]
