Our 3 day Boracay Island, Philippines Detailed Itinerary

Boracay Island – 3 Day Itinerary for Couples

Looking for decadent, touristy indulgence in a gorgeous tropical paradise? Boracay Island is for you. Our couple’s itinerary promises fun and adventure, relaxation and romance.

It was such a surprise just how much we loved Boracay Island. Both of us had a fantastic time there as a couple and wanted to share an itinerary that would work well for other couples.

We tried to make our suggested 3-day itinerary as complete and helpful as possible. We included a daily schedule of activities, with specific food and drink recommendations that coordinate with the timing and location of the activities.

Of course, there are many other possible ways to substitute and organize. This itinerary assumes that your hotel is on White Beach, but that’s where almost everyone stays, so it’s a safe assumption. Also, this itinerary is for 3 full days on Boracay Island itself. You’ll need to add travel days for your arrival and departure.

Day 1 on Boracay Island

8:00 – 9:00 AM – Breakfast at your hotel

9:00 AM -12:30 PM – Fun and Relaxation on White Beach

Boracay’s Famous White Beach in the Philippines

Boracay’s Famous White Beach

White Beach is 2.5 miles of stunning white sands and dazzling blue waters. The beauty of White beach is world-famous and world-class. Spend your first morning immersed in the spectacular scenery. Lounge on the beach sipping mimosas, take a sandy stroll, splash around together, and go in for a few watersports.

When you want to relax, go to Station 1, in the north. There are lighter crowds here and the beach here is more tranquil and spacious. For convenience and pleasure, we recommend choosing a hotel on Station 1, but it’s not necessary to enjoy this part of the beach. All of White beach is public.

Station 2 is the main hub of activity on White Beach, including all your favorite water sports like parasailing, banana boat rides, fly fish rides, jet skis, etc.

12:30 – 1:30 PM – Lunch at Smoke Restaurant in D’Mall

Station 2 is also home to D’Mall, the outdoor mall filled with countless shops, bars, and restaurants. There are so many options, but you can’t go wrong with Smoke Restaurant. It’s legendary for serving classic Filipino comfort food at great prices.

1:30 – 4:00 PM – Mount Luho, ATV, Zipline and Cable Car

3 Day Couples Itinerary for Boracay Island in the Philippines

After a morning immersed in beauty, spend the afternoon enjoying spectacular aerial views of Boracay Island from atop Mount Luho. The 360° views are vast, incredible and impressive. Inexpensive tours to Mt. Luho are very common and accessible on White Beach.

There are countless people selling these everywhere. You can easily book one during your morning on White Beach. These tours include an ATV ride up (and down) Mt. Luho, entrance to the observation tower, a tandem Zipline, and a cable car ride. These tours pick up and drop off at D’Mall.

4:00 – 5:00 PM – Shower and Chill at your hotel

Time for a break to rest a bit and get ready for the evening.

5:00 – 5:20 PM – Walk to Diwindi Beach

Coastal Walk to Diwindi Beach

From station 1, the walk to Diwindi Beach is easy, romantic, and picturesque. A headland cliff separates White Beach and Diwindi Beach, but there’s a paved walkway that curves along the cove and around the rocky cliff. It’s a great walk for all, especially for lovers preparing for sunset.

5:20 – 7:30 PM – Sunset at Spider House

Boracay’s sunsets are famous. The bar at Spider House Resort is a prime place to watch the sunset on Boracay. Enjoy happy hour cocktails on the terrace, built right on seaside rocks. Diwindi Beach is in a naturally secluded cove with headland cliffs on both sides. Spider House also serves up some great food, so stay for dinner.

7:30 PM -??? – Night Swim

The beach at Station 1 is even more empty at night – perfect for a romantic night swim in the ocean. If you’re staying at a Station 1 hotel, this is even more convenient.

Day 2 on Boracay Island

8:00 – 9:00 AM – Breakfast at your hotel

9:00 AM – 2:00 PM – Island Hopping Tour w/Lunch

Island Hopping Tour

There are several options for Island hopping tours. The most tour common visits Puka Beach, Crocodile Island, and Magic Island (for optional cliff diving) – and includes lunch and soft drinks. Another popular tour goes to Ariel’s Point, which is the premier cliff diving location. This tour is more expensive but includes unlimited food, beer, and wine.

Group tours are the most affordable and convenient with hotel pick up. If you want hotel pick up, pre-arrange the tour with your hotel or a tour company. Of course, private tours are the more romantic option. These are very easy to arrange, even on the spot. Several boatsmen dock right on the beach. Simple approach them and negotiate a deal.

2:00-3:30 PM – Smoothie and Shopping at D’Mall

Imagine soaring into the sunset, hand-in-hand with your sweetie, floating above paradise. This will take some minor planning and timing to get right, but it’s very easy to do. While sunset is roughly 6:00 PM (depending on the month), the sky is breathtakingly colorful for 1.5 to 2 hours. Just watch the sky and the lines to ensure you parasail sometime in the magical window.

6:00 – 7:00 PM – Sunset Cocktails on White Beach

Enjoy a few cocktails on White Beach before dinner. Depending on when you parasailed, you can catch the final moments of light. The number of fine places for cocktails is endless, but we recommend “Bei Kurt and Magz” for a more romantic setting. It’s on quiet station 3 and has 2 perfectly placed palm trees to frame your view.

7:00 PM – ??? – Dinner on the Beach with Fire Dancers
