Crystal Cove Island, Boracay

3.0
#1 of 7 in Nature in Boracay
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.

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.
