Crystal Cove Caves, Boracay Island
Rent a boat for half a day to island hop and do some snorkeling. Make sure the boatmen take you to Puka Beach, Crocodile Island and Crystal Cove.
In Crystal Cove, they have two beautiful caves that you can explore. I'm uploading one photo here. I believe this is Cave #1. If they have a name for it, I must have forgotten it. You go down a narrow spiral stairs which can be a bit scary. But once you are at the bottom, you'd see this wonderful view. If the water is calm, you may swim all you want. But in the afternoons when the waves get a bit crazy, you are discouraged from going down to the water. In fact, they even have safety ropes if you want to sit down or lay on these rocks.
This is Cave 1 of crystal cove. Its like a little cove, or like a small cave, with a small mouth opening to the ocean. The motion that the waves make as it enters this little cove, earned it its name, of Little tsunami. On calm days, you could easily swim out of its mouth, but on windy days, when the waves can be really rough, you are better off holding on to the ropes they have provided, for safety purposes, to keep you from being swept away or much worse, be bashed on the rocks.
We rented a boat with two boatmen and headed to this beautiful and wonderful island. We took an afternoon trip to catch the sunset on our way back to the white beach. This trip was a biggest draw. The place was gorgeous! Fantastic views! The island has two caves also available to see and experience the natures beauty underneath the rocks. A must visit while in Boracay.
Entrance: 150.00 PHP per pax
The main attraction of this island is to visit its two caves. One of the boatmen will guide you and the island securities. They are assisting guests in going in to the cave giving some tips for safety. They also help capturing pictures for their visitors. Fascinating thing to do. After the cave visit, you may refresh yourself with young coconut or buy souvenirs.
What's special with the crystal cove aside from the beach & the mini-zoo, are the 2 caves (especially cave 2) that open to the sea, it is also a good snorkeling area but be sure to wear your beach sandals as the area can be very rocky. There's a P100 fee collected at the entrance, but worth it because of the caves and the numerous photoops you can have inside. Somebody told us that the island is for sale for P3 Billion!!
Crystal Cove is one of the stops in an island hopping trip in Boracay. Entrance is P100, be sure to bring your stuff from the boat/paraw (don't leave it there). Cave 1 is the best cave as the boatmen says.
Crystal Cove is one of the stops in an island hopping trip in Boracay. It is in Laurel Island, an island at the southern end of Boracay. Crystal Cove has 2 caves for snorkeling exploration and trekking.
The first island we visited after setting off from the shores of Boracay, the Crystal Cove. An islet which offers breathtaking views, as well as revealing its little surprises to its visitors. Entrance fee is 75 pesos.
only 6USD, you get a chance to see powerful waves smashing in the caves of this island... downside, you have to rent a motorized boat at 45USD good for 6 persons, i think...so it's better to visit this island as a group to save on expenses, upside of the downside is that the tour lasts for 4 hours and if you are lucky enough to get it from friendly "sailors"/"captains" you can extend it....make sure that you get to enjoy the sunset during the "cruise", island hopping
This is just one of the breathtaking views that this island can offer. If you notice in the near distance, small rock formations next to each other
The emerald green waters are soooo inviting. You wouldn't dive though from this point, unless you want to land on sharp rocks and corals.
A short boat ride from Boracay is Crystal Cove Island. The island has two small caves that open up to the sea. The island also has great views of Panay and Boracay.
Want to take a break from the busy beach? Go to Crystal Cove and chill inside the caves. You can rent a boat to get there.
you can climb into the caves. Very nice place. Costs money to enter the island, but i fogot how much...
