Crystal Cove Island, Boracay
(3.1/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Swim and snorkel in pristine blue waters, exploring the hidden gems of Crystal Cove Island, a private island covering 2.5 hectares (6 acres) just off Boracay and Caticlan. Uninhabited but for a few thatched umbrellas, the island makes a perfect relaxation spot. Explore the main attractions here, two small caves with many crystal formations on their walls. A tunnel in the smaller one leads out to another cove, where you'll see the waves splashing against walls. Pay a visit to the small shell museum, displaying all kinds of seashells found in the Philippines. Get here with a 20-minute boat ride from eastern Boracay.
