Crocodile Island, Boracay

2.9
#3 of 7 in Nature in Boracay
Go scuba diving, snorkeling, or kayaking around Crocodile Island, which resembles a head of a crocodile seen from a distance. Clear waters swarming with marine life surround this uninhabited rocky outcrop that features a beach ideal for secluded swims and group picnics. As you explore, keep an eye out for sea lions and scorpion fish, moray eels, banded sea snakes, snappers, and gorgonian fan corals. Note that the currents around the island are strong, so it's a good idea to visit with a professional diving instructor if you don't feel fully confident in your underwater skills. Plan your visit to Crocodile Island and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Boracay trip itinerary planner.

  • This was part of the attraction in the island hopping offered. However we could not get down to swim due to rough seas. We were on shown the island and were taken to another alternavie snorkeling spot  more »
  • It looks like a croc, which is cool I guess, but not really worth the trip. The day we went there were very strong currents, even with life jackets on it was very hard to stay anywhere near the boat. ...  more »
  • Beautiful beach, especially for those looking for diving. Unfortunately I spent a few minutes there but certainly I'm going back to at least practice snorkeling.

Where to stay in Boracay

Boracay holds a daunting number of hotels, guesthouses, and hostels, especially given its size. Just along the main central beach, choose between dozens of four- and five-star resorts, as well as mid-range hotels and guesthouses, all of which come at reasonable rates. For a romantic, tropical atmosphere, opt to stay in one of the wooden huts and bungalows that face the beach or circle grassy central compounds. The peak tourism season lasts from November to May, when prices rise and availability shrinks, so you'll want to book ahead of time.
