A Boracay honeymoon is not complete without an island hopping tour. Crocodile island and Puka beaches are common stops, with lunch included. Don’t worry, Crocodile island does not have crocs living on them, it’s just shaped like a crocodile.

5. Sunbathe on your own private beach at Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort & Spa

Boracay honeymoon - boracay shangri-la White Beach in Boracay can get pretty crowded especially in the evenings, leaving you no place to suntan. When you stay at Shangri-La, you can seek seclusion and privacy in the exclusive comfort of your own private beach.

7. Chill out over famous fruit shakes at Jonah’s

There is no better way to shake off the heat with a smooth mango shake. For being labeled as the “best fruit shake in Boracay”, I suppose that makes Jonah’s a must try. Though I must add that due to its poularity, you might find it a little pricey for its quantity. We found the taste pretty average. Other stalls around Boracay do serve up pretty good shakes too (for a lesser price) so don’t be too focused on Jonah’s alone.

8. Sail out into the romantic sunset on a Paraw
