Custom made for the beach lover, the 11 Day/10 Night Beach Explorer adventure takes you towhat are arguably the top 3 island destinations in the Philippines. We start our adventure off in the Philippines’ quintessential beach destination, Boracay, where you’ll enjoy world class shopping, dining, pubbing and clubbing as well as some of the best beaches in the Philippines. There’s a lot more than just great beaches in Boracay though! Try out cliff jumping, chill out in the natural cold springs, and relax the afternoon away poolside at a craft gin distillery during our awesome Boracay daytrip! Next we head to the unique and mystical island of Bohol. Visit the famous chocolate hills, see one of the smallest primates in the world, test your nerves at the incredible Danao Adventure Park, and enjoy some unbelievable snorkelling and diving right down the road from our resort. World class surfing is what put our last destination on the map, but that’s not all that’s on offer in Siargao. Caves, rock pools, waterfalls, lagoons, jungle parties, island hopping and some of the craziest adventure activities in the Philippines await you in this stunning tropical wonderland. If sun, sand, salt water and incredible scenery are what you’re craving, the 11 Day Island Explorer is exactly what you’re looking for!
Day 1 you will arrive mid to late afternoon at Kalibo or Caticlan airport, near the island of Boracay. Our transfer van will pick you up at the airport and take you to the Caticlan pier where you’ll board a traditional banca boat for the short 15-minute ride to Boracay Island. Once on the island another minibus will take you from the Boracay pier to our awesome group accommodations on Bulabog Beach. Our first day in town we get the group acquainted with the layout of the island and a trip to the famous White Beach. Day 2 the group hits the open water on our private banca boat for an awesome day trip including cliff jumping, lunch at the natural cold water springs and a trip to Boracay’s new ocean front craft distillery, where we can taste their delicious creations and relax in the pool!! Our last day in town is yours to spend the way you like, with a bounty of incredible options available on this beautiful island. One popular optional activity is the Sunset Cruise, which we are able to get our guests at a great discount through our awesome partners on the island.
This is as complicated as our transportation gets. Day 4 we transfer back to the airport in Caticlan, where we then fly from Caticlan to Cebu. Once in Cebu we transfer from the airport to the seaport, where we hop the ferry over to Bohol. Once in Bohol, a driver will be waiting to take us to our awesome apartment style accommodations on Panglao Island. It’s a bit of a long day, but we get there early enough in the evening to head down to the gorgeous Alona Beach for dinner, drinks and the incredible sunset. Day 5 the group embarks on one of the most exciting group activities of the trip. We visit the famous chocolate hills, see some of the smallest primates in the world, cruise down a jungle river on a pontoon boat with lunch and live entertainment, and stop in at the E.A.T. Danao adventure park where you can zip line across a stunning rainforest river canyon, plunge 200m off a cliff on a “superman swing”, try your hand at “root climbing” and more. This day trip is always a guest favorite. Day 6 is a free day to spend as you like. Many guests like to laze the day away on one of the many beautiful beaches in the area, but Bohol is also home to some world class diving and snorkelling, and happens to be a great place to spot sea turtles!
Day 7 we hop the ferry from Bohol back to Cebu and transfer to the airport for our flight to Siargao. Our drivers meet us at the airport in Siargao and take us to our awesome accommodations in General Luna. Our first day on the island we get accommodated and enjoy some free time to explore the cool and laid back town of General Luna. Day 8 we gear up for one of the most memorable days of the entire trip as we load up our private boats for a day of island hopping, including all of our adult refreshments and a delicious BBQ lunch on one of Siargao’s stunning tropical islands. Day 9 and 10 are free days where you can use your time learning to surf, plunging into crystal clear lagoons, or soaking up the wild vistas on one of the many picturesque beaches. Day 9 we arrange an optional day trip where we hire a private Jeepney (if you haven’t heard of one, google it) and take you around to some really cool spots that not many travellers to the island take the time to venture to. Siargao is wild, rugged, beautiful and always a guest favorite. The evening of Day 10 the group gets together at one of our favorite restaurants in General Luna for a send off dinner and relaxing final evening at some of the areas hip & laid-back lounges/bars. Say goodbye to the amazing new friends you’ve made over the past 10 days, and prepare yourself for your onward journey home. The next morning, Day 11 is your departure day and airport transfers will be available at any time throughout the day. Or perhaps like many of our guests, you will be having so much fun you’ll want to join us for another 10 days on the next leg of our Philippines adventure, the 10 Day Palawan Island Hopper!
