Island
A shimmering turquoise treasure trove of reef-lined shores and golden beaches, Cowrie Island provides your final slice of paradise on a Honda Bay island hop. Known for some of the clearest waters in the area, the island makes a great spot to search for clown fish and starfish as you snorkel along the reef, before drying off in the heat of the day on secluded sands framed with shady cabanas. Hidden among the tropical palms, find thatched huts serving colorful cocktails, fruit shakes, and tempting buffet lunches. You can rent snorkeling equipment on the island.

  • Cowrie island is the most beautiful island i've ever seen. I love it because when we were there i got to see this wonderful island together with my family. The water is crystal clear and beautiful! Definitely ideal for swimming. :) I enjoyed all the activities that are available at this island, like jetski and banana boat because its affordable and definitely worth every peso you spent. It's a nice place to visit you will surely love its ambiance.
  • nice beach, quiet, clean. better arrange lunch package during the tour
  • Very nice beach. Water skiing, banana boat, massage, food, smart mobile coverage. Few people before 12pm when we visited 13. jan.
  • If you're looking for sun, white sand, and to relax this is the place to go. They offer an all you can eat lunch line, shaded bar, and water sports including jetski rental!
  • Best island on the Honda Bay island hopping tour, chance to rent jet skies and banana boat rides etc. Pretty crowded thou, but that's to be expected.
