Discover Ariel's Point - Boracay
Boracay is an island resort well known for its white sandy beaches and party atmosphere. You will find quite a lot of people on its shores at any given time of the year, enjoying the sun, the sea, and the sand. While most people who come to the island do indulge in the usual activities that are being offered here, the more adventurous find themselves on Ariel’s Point.
What is Ariel’s Point and why is it recommended that you give this part of Boracay a try? If you are an adrenaline junky, are looking to conquer your fear of heights or of diving, or simply want to try something new, then diving off the cliffs of Ariel’s Point might just be for you. This is a very popular cliff diving spot on the island, and is where a lot of people try to give jumping off very high heights a try. It is also a good place for you to meet new people and just party, eat, and drink while others jump off the platforms that are built on the cliffs.
This cliff diving adventure can be had for a fee of P1200 which includes not only use of the three diving boards that are at 5, 8, and 15 meters in height, but also comes with a buffet lunch. You can jump all you want from any of the three heights, taking into consideration the others that want to jump too, of course, and whether or not you can swim well enough. There are life vests available for rent for those who are unsure of their swimming skills, but these cannot be used with the highest diving platform. If diving off the cliffs is not your thing, you can still enjoy the food, the view, and swimming as well as kayaking.

What our experts tell about this experience.
I can not believe I agreed to my girlfriend that we would come here. I can do anything wild and extreme and the most disgusting horrible dares but I'm really not ok with heights. But my girlfriend is just insane with these types of activities. And what can I say, I love her too much and to say no. We came here for cliff diving for my first and last time experience. It wasn't bad. That was for me though. As for my girlfriend she was having a blast. First she tried one of the lower ones and that wasn't enough for her so she went ahead and dove from the 15 m one.. Ok.. We had a great time. I'm happy she was so proud of herself.
So my sisters and I aren't extreme on getting nude and having a sex party. But for an adrenaline rush.. We'd never say NO. With smirks on our faces when we first planned the trip here to being here and looking at each other with the biggest smiles. Ariel's Point was our diamond. Like one of the best presents we could ever get. We went cliff diving here and it was spectacular! The rush of the wind on that first dive! The hike back up and another dive down! Was fantastic!
I'm an adventurous person, so the usual beach scene wouldn't cut it for me. I'm so glad I visited Ariel's Point! It's the best place to try something new--my most favorite activity was cliff diving off Ariel's Point, and making new friends afterwards over dinner and drinks. I can't wait to go back!
