Dragon boating was first introduced to Boracay in 2001. Since then, annual competitions have been held in its pristine blue waters.
Organised by The Boracay Island Paddlers Association (BIPA), this competition attracts teams from Australia, China, Canada, USA, Singapore, The Netherlands, and the region of Hong Kong, as well as Manila-boat paddlers.

Mabuhay & Welcome to Boracay!
Imagine a tropical island with numerous beaches and coves and a world-famous 4 kilometer long White Beach, with powdery white sand and crystal clear water. Boracay has received numerous accolades and is regularly voted Best Beach and Best Island by TripAdvisor and Travel & Leisure Magazine.
There are many fabulous Hotels and Resorts to choose from, with Boracay.travel you can search by Hotel Name, Location or Budget Range. When booking, you are given the total cost of your booking before you proceed; there are no hidden costs added at the end of the process as many of our competitors do. What you see is what you get!
Boracay.travel is a local Travel Agency and was the very first online travel agency on the island. We have a wealth of experience about the island, the hotels and activities. You can contact us online, via Facebook or Skype or by Cell or Landline telephone.
The island has been a favourite tourist hangout for over 30 years, when it was first discovered by backpackers. Whilst the island has changed over the years a hip, and cool ambiance continues to surround the island and there are still pockets of 'the old Boracay' to be found.
Apart from White Beach, there are many other beautiful beaches along Boracay's coast, each with its own unique spirit. These include Cagban, Manoc-manoc, Tambisaan, Tulhaban, Bulabog, Ilig-iligan, Puka Shell, Punta Bunga, Balinghai and Diniwid.
With all these beaches it is no surprise that there are many fabulous watersports to be enjoyed, including windsurfing, kitesurfing, snorkelling, helmet diving and diving, to name just a few.
Bulabog Beach, on the East side of the island, is a popular beach to stay on or near, especially for visiting Kite Surfers and Wind Surfers, as this is the beach where these activities take place from November through to June. From July to October all Water Sport Activity is moved to this beach.
Boracay has been showered with numerous tourist awards by international bodies.
With recognition and numerous awards, Boracay has changed from being a quiet beach destination, where visitors camped by the shore, lit a fire, and watched the waves by the moonlight to a modernised tourist hub, with the usual distractions - diving sites, native tattoo parlours, and scores of bars and restaurants.
Facilities like banks, police station and a fire department have added to the organised feel of the island. There are also many great Boracay tours to enjoy.
