AirAsia in Caticlan: Island Hopping and ATV/Buggy ride to Mt. Luho in Boracay


Our Day 2 cardboard schedule reads - island hop, snorkeling, ATV at Mt. Luho and night out again. I know we have a packed day to beat so I woke up ahead of call time to see the early morning life in the island paradise.

Azalea is located near the main road at Station 2 so you need to take a short walk to the famous white sand beach passing by other posh hotels and a 24-hour fastfood joint along the way.

Amazing how the shoreline that was swarmed by partying people, walking here and there the night before were all gone and the shoreline is now a picture of peaceful, calm and composed scenery as you expect your morning walks along the beach should be. Ang bilis mag move-on. I took few snaps and returned to the hotel to have our breakfast at Kuya J’s.

Like water which can clearly mirror the sky and the trees 
only so long as its surface is undisturbed, 
the mind can only reflect the true image of the Self 
when it is tranquil and wholly relaxed.

The famed Boracay sandcastle, taking picture is not free! P20 po.

At 10AM, amid blazing Boracay sun, we boarded the boat that will take us to different spots in the island. Our first stop was Tambisaan shore, a little fish feeding and dipping and we’re off again to Magic Island. This is where you dare yourself, face your fear and jump from the 3 to 8 meters high diving board attached to the cliff. Had my bones been in my 20’s I’ll take the dare, YOLO so they say! But I’ve had enough jumping in the past, so millennials take it away!  

Prepping to leave, but first paningkamut Pen 😁

Tambisahan shore, traffic din po sa dagat

Crystal Cove Island

We had our seafood lunch at Crystal Cove; it’s another beautiful island southwest of Boracay. It has coves and inlets where you can explore and hide from the fuming sun.

Oh, Ocean! Thank you for letting us feel so tiny, so powerless, so humbled and so salty

Once an author said, the cure to everything is saltwater, indeed, it is!

With sails up? Picture perfect!

Just to let you know, I've been here, lelz! Init kaayo diring dapita!

We sailed back to station 2 at 2PM. We only have 30 minutes to freshen up and drive to Mt. Luho via ATV and quirky Buggy. Wish us luck! 

Mt. Luho is the highest point in Boracay Island; it can be accessed by tricycles and single motorcycles and in our case – ATVs and Buggy ride. The ride up was fun and exciting especially that there’s a number of us, not to mention the breathtaking view of the ocean along the way, beautiful!

Kaya natin 'to, Mich!

Love my ride, pawis steering but fun!

If these are all the mountain climbs I need to experience in the world, I’ll do it all the time, lelz. Scaling the concrete stairs up to Mt. Luho maybe tiresome but it’s very convenient. Gezzz, I forgot to count the steps. There’s also a little cafe at the landing called, Sinta Bar where they serve fresh fruit juices, shakes and water to panting souls. Then we climbed up the steel observation deck called, Ocean Tower. At 100 meters above sea level, you can see the 360* beautiful panorama of the whole island, its breathtaking up here!

Thank you so much for taking care of us!

We didn’t stay long, we drove down again with my happy passenger, Momshie Mafe 😃😃😃 Thanks a lot Red Coral ATV & Buggy for the great experience.

Our day isn’t over yet, we’re the servants of the sun; we need to worship it before it sets to the farthest ocean. 

But first, a short stop at D’Talipapa. Glad it’s just a short walk from Azalea, we bought souvenirs and ‘pasalubong’. Thanks Ace P. for the company. 

Now it’s time to witness the legendary twilight of Boracay!
