If reverse bungee is too much for you, but you still want to be up in the sky, then parasailing is the perfect Boracay activity for you. Since most parasailing activities are done from 8 AM to 6 PM, you can opt to have your 15-minute ride during the sunset for another perfect perspective of the beautiful Boracay sunset.
6. Drive an ATV

One of the normal activities that you were probably deprived of during the lockdown was driving around the city. If you’re itching to be behind the wheels again during the remaining days of summer, then driving an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) should be on your Boracay activities list. This is your chance to explore the rugged terrains of the island aside from its beaches. A little thrill is sure, especially when you encounter rocky and muddy paths. Get ready to get wild and dirty--with mud! Most of all, enjoy.
7. Cliff diving

Those who have experienced it would say that one of the top things one must do in Boracay is cliff diving. While it can certainly be nerve-wracking to jump from cliffs that range from three to 15 meters high both in Magic Island Boracay and Ariel’s Point, it’s not too bad to be able to experience it at least once in your lifetime. After all, this is one of the best opportunities to release all your stress, fears, and worries caused by the novel coronavirus.
8. Party like there’s no tomorrow

One of the things that the coronavirus lockdown deprived of us is the opportunity to mingle and party with people. Speaking of parties and the perfect nightlife, Boracay is the best place to be!
Different Boracay resorts and restaurants offer different signature drinks and party experiences that you sure won’t experience in other islands! If you’re partying alone, you can opt to join Boracay’s famous Pub Crawl where the strangers turn into good friends. As you go around different bars on the island all night long, remember that this is the time to dance, converse, drink, and party with people!
9. Ride the Zorb ball
If you’re wondering how it feels like to be a hamster on a wheel, ride the Zorb ball. This is one of the adrenaline-filled Boracay activities you should try. After all, it's not every day you get to roll down on a hill and into a pool inside a giant inflatable ball. It is sure to be a good story to tell your family, friends, and colleagues once you go back to work.
10. Eat seafood all you want
