“Jump Off a Cliff and Build Your Wings on the Way Down” (Magic Island, Aklan)

Magic Island, Aklan (Dec 5, 2014)

The adrenaline rush has become an addiction of mine —- heart racing, free fall, the danger, the risk! I’ve always wanted to jump off a cliff!

From Boracay, me and my cousin took a Paraw (sail boat) to go to Magic Island. There are two cliff diving/ jumping points near Boracay (Ariel’s Point and Magic Island). All the boats stopped operating that time because of the weather. A typhoon was coming in 2 days, so just to be extra careful, the coast guard disallowed all water activities. The Paraw was an exception because since it’s a sailboat, it uses the wind to sail.

About thirty minutes from Boracay, we got to Magic Island. By this time we were already so excited to jump! You see, I don’t know how to swim but I did it anyway. I made sure I had a life jacket on (don’t worry, it was an old one so it wasn’t hard and I knew it wouldn’t choke me).

It was a 10-meter drop! Of course it looked like I was gonna chicken out at first because I chose the highest point. It took me about 5 minutes to actually jump into the water! I must say, it was by far one of the most amazing activities I’ve ever tried in my life. My butt hurt because of the impact but other than that, it was really awesome!!!
