    Swim and Snorkel

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There's not much in the way of entertainment here (alright, there's none!), but rest assured that when you get off the boat you'll want to jump into the sea for a swim. Bring snorkel equipment with you from Boracay.

    Hummingbird

    Shh! you don't know what you might see! I spotted this little yellow and black hummingbird flitting through the trees close to where I was sitting. Luckily it sat still for a few seconds so that I could photograph it. My friend's daughter found a green stick-insect and an enormous crab! Occasionally there are also dolphins in this area too - if you are lucky you may see some from your boat.

    Malay Ecological Park

    You'll find this little park/picnic area on the main road, about 10 minutes by tricycle outside of Caticlan (and pretty far from the beaches I described on the rest of this page). Entrance fee is P50, and you can wander around the grounds, explore the butterfly garden and enjoy a picnic (bring your own, and don't forget to pick up the garbage) in one of the tree houses. There are two sea eagles in an aviary and a large monitor lizard, as well as an enormous (dead) leatherback turtle in a glass case. Some of the larger plants and trees have signs beside them listing their names though most of the foliage is unidentified.
    The main tree house has awesome views across the channel to Boracay as the park is set on a forested hillside.
    Tip: Do NOT use the handrail when using climbing the steps by the main entrance. It is used as a highway by a colony of those big biting red ants, as I found out to my regret!
