Paraw / Sunset Sailing
The paraw is a well-known small wooden handcrafted native sail boat in the Philippines, and paraw-sailing is one of the major and most popular tourist activities in the island. It is one of the most beautiful, relaxing, and romantic ways to explore Boracay, especially if you’re with a loved one or someone significant.
It also offers island-hopping that takes you to places around Boracay where you can also experience snorkelling on the other beaches and nearby islands. The waves could sometimes be strong too, which makes the cruise more exciting, thrilling, and unforgettable.
Most tourists and locals would definitely say that paraw-sailing is at its best during sunset—a specific time of the day when the wind, the sea, and the setting sun gives you the sense of the island vibe that’s both relaxing and romantic. Paraw-sailing is something that you, your family, and friends should never miss out while in Boracay.
The paraw sail boat can usually carry up to six people, but some could sit on its outrigger wings. Some paraw-sailing package includes having a coolbox on board so that you can enjoy having drinks that complement with the sunset feel. Through this amazing activity, you can also expect a warm, distinct breeze that only Boracay can offer as this island’s day transitions to night
