The Best Boracay Land Tour Destinations + Complete Itinerary

Boracay is known for its beautiful white sand beach, crystal-clear turquoise waters, and exciting water activities. But after visiting Boracay four times, I discovered a hidden gem that most tourists are unaware of – Boracay land tour.

With Boracay land tour, I’ve explored less crowded and peaceful beaches without taking a boat. This perfect slow travel experience allowed me to see everyday life on the island and feel more connected to it.

In this guide, I will share the best Boracay land tour destinations, sample itineraries, and prices so you can plan your own land tour.

Boracay Land Tour Options

Unlike island hopping tours with fixed itineraries, Boracay land tour gives you flexibility and control of your time.

While drivers have suggested itineraries, you can skip any stops or stay longer at others. You pay for the tour hourly, so you can decide how long you want to spend at each destination.

Here are the different ways to enjoy your Boracay land tour:


Walking along the white beach from station 2 (or 3) to station 1 to see Willie’s Rock is a great way to take in the white beach, local restaurants, and even paraws.

I love walking every morning or at sunset or whenever I look for a spot to do yoga or to eat.

I did this walk with my mother and a friend, although my friend did question our friendship after such a long walk. 😅 But kidding aside, it’s one of the most relaxing ways to enjoy Boracay.

Renting a Motorbike

If walking’s not your jam, you can still explore the beautiful shores with a motorbike.

Rent a motorbike and discover the most secluded and untouched beaches. Since you’ll be on your own, you can spend as much time as you want in each location.

I’ve done it once and I’ve discovered many quiet beaches that I’ve never heard of. Also, who can resist the excitement of being on a motorbike?

I’ve listed those beaches and other destinations below for your own Boracay DIY land tour.

E-Trike Tour 

If you don’t feel like driving around, you can easily hire an e-trike driver in Boracay for ony P500 ($10) per hour. This is a great option for small groups of up to four people.

You can easily find a tricycle driver on the main road. When you find one, discuss first the places you want to visit and the duration of the tour before settling on a price.

Multicab Tour

If you’re traveling with a big group, going with a multicab would be your best bet. A multicab is a small light truck that is used for public transport.

A tour on a multicab would average P700 per vehicle, not per person, which is great because they can carry a maximum of 10 passengers at a time!

ATV Tour

For an extraordinary Boracay adventure, you can rent an ATV for P800 to P1,000. The ATV can hold a driver and a passenger, and you can even visit the stunning Mt Luho Viewpoint for just P150 entrance fee. The breathtaking view from the top is completely worth it!

The Best Boracay Land Tour Destinations

Boracay land tour allows you to explore various destinations, including beaches and other attractions.

All the destinations are located close to each other, and you can cover them within a half day with an e-trike, multicab, or motorbike.

The best part? All destinations are FREE to enter! Yes, no entrance fee!

Here are the top destinations you can visit during the tour:

Boracay Land Tour Itinerary

Are you looking for a Boracay land tour itinerary? Here are some samples for you!

Remember, the best thing about this land tour is its flexibility. You can choose which destinations you want to visit and skip or add any spots that you want.

You can even check a spot and decide whether you want to continue with the next destination or stay longer.

For me, it’s best to limit the number of attractions you visit to five. This gives you plenty of time to enjoy each one without feeling rushed.

And if you start the tour in the morning, you’ll have enough time to explore any of these three itineraries.

Itinerary 1: North Boracay

This is the usual land tour Boracay itinerary. Compared to the itineraries on the list, this one requires a full day. Bring some packed lunch to enjoy on the beach!

Lugutan Mangrove Park

Boracay Land Tour vs Island Hopping

If you’re planning to visit Boracay, you have two options for exploring the island: island hopping and land tours in Boracay.

I highly recommend both if you have time and resources. But if you had to choose, as someone who has done both the land tour and island hopping a couple of times, here’s what I think.

The Boracay land tour will take you to quieter beaches, where you can try local cuisine, and get close to the island’s culture. It’s perfect for those who want to explore Boracay deeply, beyond its beaches.

Although the islands near Boracay are beautiful, I find those in Coron and El Nido Palawan more breathtaking. For me, the highlight of Boracay is its white beach, which you can fully experience during a land tour.

A land tour also allows you not to follow a strict schedule, so you can take your time and decide to stay at one destination longer. Plus, it’s much more affordable than island hopping.

On the other hand, island hopping is all about enjoying the waters. It’s ideal for adventure lovers who want to snorkel, relax on secluded beaches that are only accessible by boat, and enjoy the view from the boat ride. This option is perfect for those who love to swim, sunbathe, and enjoy the ocean.

If you can, I recommend doing both the land tour and island hopping. However, if you have to choose only one, I suggest going for the land tour. You can always add one or two water activities after your land tour to experience water fun.

They also have a restaurant in Station 1 in front of Willy’s Rock where you can enjoy Filipino meals and snacks. Make sure to include Jonah’s in your Boracay land tour itinerary because who wouldn’t want to lounge on the beach with a refreshing fruit shake in their hand?

Tips for Your Boracay Land Tour

  • If you’re hiring an e-trike or a multicab, discuss the rates first with your driver to avoid any surprises with the final cost. Drivers usually follow a standard rate, but it’s always best to confirm. 
  •  If you’re traveling with kids, children up to 4 years old are usually free of charge. Ask your driver about this.
  •  Bring enough cash. While most restaurants in Station 2 accept credit cards and GCash payments, you’ll likely visit remote beaches where small local vendors only accept cash.
  • Always check the weather before planning your itinerary. Ask your driver which sites are best to visit given the weather predictions for the day. 
  • You can usually bring your food and drinks without a corkage fee on a land tour. Please dispose of your waste properly! Also, while it’s not a requirement, it’s a nice gesture to offer some food to your driver or guide.

Wrap Up: Is Boracay Land Tour Worth It?

Yes. Boracay Land Tour is worth it if you want to see the island in a non-touristy way and save money. It also gives you the freedom to experience everything that Boracay has to offer at your own pace.

Whether you’re a first-time visitor or someone who has been to Boracay before and wants a different experience, I highly recommend taking the land tour.
