Frequently Asked Questions
How high are the cliff diving platforms at Ariel’s Point?
There are five different cliff diving platforms at Ariel’s Point. The exact heights vary based on the tide levels, but our highest platform is 13 meters above the water, with the lower ones at 7 meters, 6 meters, 5 meters, and 3 meters. Guests who prefer not to jump from any of the platforms can use our floating dock to enter the water.
Besides cliff diving, what is there to do at Ariel’s Point?
While many guests visit Ariel’s Point for the thrill of cliff diving, there are other activities that guests can enjoy during this half-day excursion. In addition to the barbecue buffet and bar, guests can sunbathe on a bamboo raft, snorkel along a rocky cove, or paddle in a native outrigger canoe or kayak. There are also unspoiled beaches within paddling distance of Ariel’s Point.
Regardless of what type of activities you decide to enjoy, be sure to bring your camera, since the views at Ariel’s Point are breathtaking, and you might even see a troop of monkeys or a school of flying fish during your visit.
What is included in the BBQ buffet?
The BBQ buffet varies slightly from day-to-day since our priority is providing you with the freshest food possible. Nevertheless, the following items are typically included in our lunch buffet: barbecued chicken, fresh fish (the type of fish depends on the local fishermen’s catch of the day), fresh shrimp, grilled pork, Filipino pansit noodles, eggplant salad, buttered potatoes, assorted fruit, shrimp crackers, steamed rice, and deep-fried bananas.

Where can I purchase my tickets?
You can pay for your tickets to Ariel’s Point by visiting the Boracay Beach Club, which is located in Station 1 behind the Ariel's House beachfront lounge (next to Club Paraw and the Obama Grill). A map to the Boracay Beach Club can be viewed here.
Are there other ways to get to Ariel's Point?
At the current time, the only official way to visit Ariel's Point is by making a booking through the Ariel's Point office at the Boracay Beach Club, which is located in Station 1 behind the Ariel's House beachfront lounge (next to Club Paraw and the Obama Grill). Ariel's Point now has two official boats to accommodate our guests.
Due to Ariel's Point's limited capacity, all visitors should make their bookings directly through the Ariel's Point office at the Boracay Beach Club. In the past, people have opted to take a private boat to this ecotourism destination only to learn that Ariel's Point was closed off to "walk-in" visitors due to weather conditions or capacity constraints. Additionally, all "walk-in" visitors (i.e. guests not booking through Ariel's House and the Boracay Beach Club) will be required to pay a separate local environmental and snorkeling fee of 100 PHP per person (levied by the municipality of Buruanga) and an entrance fee of 800 PHP per person. This entrance fee does not include guest access to the BBQ buffet. (Note: Since Ariel's Point does not maintain exclusive agreements with any local travel providers or commissioners, this entrance fee is typically not included in the price of private boat charters or "island hopping" tours. If you are told otherwise, please contact the Boracay Beach Club).
While we would love to provide Boracay Island visitors and residents with more ways to reach Ariel's Point, we have developed these policies for the comfort and safety of our valued guests.
