5 ways to celebrate your birthday on Boracay
There are plenty of fun ways to celebrate your birthday on Boracay island in the Philippines.
Yes it’s very touristy, but venture away from the crowded area around Station 2 and there’s a bunch of fun things you can to do make your birthday truly special and memorable.
#1 Beach boat party to Carubao island
If you like beach fun and partying, this is a great way to celebrate your birthday. Boracay Explorer offers an excellent boat trip to nearby isolated Carubao island where all food and drinks are provided throughout.
Our trip attracted a variety of ages from 18 to 60 years old.
Carubao island is a short trip by boat, around 30 minutes. There are no tourists on this island and the beach is stunning. It's great for relaxing with crystal clear waters.
When we joined the group in the morning, we knew nobody. But by the end of the day, we were friends with everyone on board.
Celebrating your birthday on a boat will be one of the highlights of your Boracay trip. The excellent and friendly staff of Boracay Explorer, like Magic Mike, make it even more special:
#2 Learn to dress up and swim like mermaids!
And we say: “Why not!”
It’s a unique way to celebrate your birthday on Boracay, not to mention a great work out and a whole lot of fun.
The mermaid teachers are fantastic and this makes a truly unique birthday present on Boracay for your loved one.
Go on…we know you’re tickled to try!
#3 Indulge yourself at the luxurious Mandala Spa
Mandala Spa and Villas is an oasis of relaxation heaven, hidden away from the busy touristy area of Station 2. As soon as you enter the grounds, it’s like you’ve been transported to a completely new quiet, peaceful and serene environment.
We celebrated Sebastien's birthday on Boracay being spoilt rotten at the luxurious Mandala Spa.
Mandala Spa offers some incredible massages and spa packages aimed at relaxation and rejuvenation in a very romantic setting. We highly recommend it to anyone who wants to indulge a little bit for their birthday on Boracay.
We loved it so much that we dedicated an article about our experience at Mandala Spa.
#4 Kite surfing on Bulabog beach
Bulabog beach is located on the East side of Boracay and has some of the best kitesurfing in Asia.
The waters of Bulagob beach are windy and therefore not ideal for swimming. But the beach itself is a lagoon with a reef protecting it from strong waves, making it ideal for kitesurfing.
#5 Birthday treat at a romantic restaurant
There are many excellent restaurants in Boracay to choose from for a nice birthday dinner.
A few of our favourites include:
- Los Indios Bravos: it is one of the highly rated restaurants by Tripadvisor. It offers a mix of yummy Western foods and traditional Filipino foods like kinilaw (raw fish salad).
- 357 Boracay has some of the tastiest spare ribs we’ve ever tried and located on a very romantic setting by the beach at Station 3, far from the noise around Station 2. It also offers some excellent mid range accommodation options.
And if you are lucky like we were, your hotel might surprise you with a birthday cake, like Ferra hotel on Boracay did on Sebastien's special day:
