If you've been to Boracay more than a few times and you're tired of the usual activities - go to Ariel's Point.

Set aside the whole day for it, it's a good 45mins to 1 hr 15 mins depending on the waves. It's also a huge boat so nothing to worry about. You leave about 830 then the ride back is around 4 so you can still catch the sunset.

The price includes the boat, and a buffet lunch aside from the obvious catch of the place - the cliff jumping.

3 heights to choose from - 10, 20 and 30 meters. Don't attempt the 30 if you're not a practiced diver - the others end up having bruises on their legs or worse, injuries by the groin area.

The buffet is nothing spectacular but there's 3 dishes with dessert and they also serve meryenda with fruits.

The only thing keeping it from a perfect rating is the mix of the crowd, from the super daring foreigners to the uncouth local and foreigner mix who don't seem to have manners.

Are you an adventurous type of person? Are you BRAVE enough? If YES, then add ariels point on your I.T. when planning to have a Vacation at Boracay, JUMP!

The price depesnds on the season. It includes unlimited drinks (beer, rhum coke, coke products), lunch buffet, used of kayak and snorkling gears. Unlimited drinks starts after boarding the boat from Boracay to Ariel's Point, I recommend drinking liquor to boost your courage to jump the cliff. 128540

As much as possible, alighting the boat first is better for you to choose a cottage near the bar and diving points.

I was only brave enough to jump off twice from the 5 meters diving point. I'll try again soon the 8 and 15 metera diving point.

The food was good and staff were accomodating

Drink all the booze you can & summon the courage to jump off a cliff 49.21 feet high. Just make sure to avoid falling with your butt hitting the water first to save you from a broken tailbone and weeks of intolerable butt and back pain. 128557 I've lived to tell this: It's totally worth it. Or maybe. I'm still deciding. 128513

Date of visit: 11 July 2013
Butt and back pain: endured for 12 days supported with loads of painkillers and muscle relaxants - Camphor + Menthol (Omega, Bengay), Etoricoxib, and Eperisone HCL
Broken tailbone: 12 days and still counting

Nevertheless, I still give it 5 stars. 128540

My friends have been to this place, I guess, thrice already. It is a never-miss-thing whenever you go to Bora. You're Bora trip will never be called a Bora trip if you fail to visit this place. Ariel's point is a classic adrenaline rush thrill.

If you're the adventurous type who likes the great outdoors, the sun, sand and sea, or if you are not afraid of heights, then this is the place for you. Ariel's Point is located on an island 40 minutes off of Boracay island. They conduct daily group tours, and the boats depart from Station 2 at 11 am everyday, and depart from Ariel's Point at 4 pm. Overall, you get around 4 hours of play time on the island.

The group tours cost Php 1600 per head, and it is inclusive of the round trip boat ride, use of all amenities on the island, and unlimited food and drinks! They serve you drinks on the boat ride, and when you arrive, there are snacks available (prawn crackers & fruits) before they serve lunch at around 1 pm. The lunch spread consisted of inihaw na liempo, tuna belly, barbecue chicken, chorizo, pancit and rice. They had an assortment of fruits available for dessert, too. Then at 3 pm they serve merienda (banana cue). For the drinks, they have mineral water, soft drinks, beer (San Miguel and Red Horse!) and rum coke available. 128077

My friends tell me that when they went just last year, there was only 1 boat to take the whole group to the island. This year, there were 3 full boats! They added new cabanas and tables to accommodate the extra number of people. Some of the cabanas were so new that the concrete was still wet! One of my friends almost fell from one level because the railing he was leaning against dislodged from the concrete post which was freshly made. 128078

A tip: as soon as you get off the boat, make sure to get the best tables possible (the ones near the buffet and near the diving boards are the most ideal). Once you get a nice spot, then you can enjoy the many jump off points there. They have jump points at 3 meters, 5 meters, 8 meters and 15 meters.

I'm afraid of heights so I did not even dare try any of these jump points. I did jump...from a 2 meter high platform. And it wasn't even an official jump point, it was the lowest point before the wooden ladder leading into the sea. I wanted to swim out to the floating kubo where all my friends were, so I braved those 2 meters. Hehe. 128526 Out there on the floating kubo you can lounge around, swim nearby and snorkel, and you can also use the kayaks to paddle as far as you dare go. 128522

Overall, it was a good experience. I had fun in the sun! I was able to take a nap after lunch. And I enjoyed a leisurely kayak ride. I may not have jumped, but seeing my friends do so is enough for me. 128077
