Ariel’s Point is featured recently in Cosmopolitan magazine as Boracay’s top attraction. It is the perfect daytime spot for adventure junkies. Packages starts from 1500PHP for unlimited cliff jumps, kayak, snorkeling, lunch and booze. You can spend the day there soaking in the sun and clear waters, it is a pretty good deal for that price. My trip there was unforgettable because it was my first time doing cliff jumping. Check out the Facebook page for pictures and updates.
Packages can be purchased on Boracay island itself. You need to book in advance, especially during the peak season from December to May. The boat ride from Boracay island to Ariel’s Point take about an hour or so. Plan your time well and make the most out of your time at Ariel’s Point. Most of my pictures are taken with GoPro Hero 3 with underwater housing.
Here’s a video walk through of Ariel’s Point and how it looks like to be at the 15 meters (highest) platform. The volume is a little soft because of my underwater housing, tune up your volume.
I had to think thrice before my first jump because I was freaked out at the edge. I got the salty sea water up my nose when I did the first jump, so pinch your nose when going down to prevent that. Try to land feet first straight into the water, otherwise you are going to feel the impact. Unless you are a professional diver who goes in head first.
