They'll turn you into jelly!!
I only know of one danger in Potipot, and that's the presence of jellyfish. When we got there, there was a plastic cup by the beach that contained two small jellyfish. We found others of their kind while swimming. Just don't go near them and you'll be fine.
Even with a "maintenance fee" of P20 per head, the island is hardly maintained! we saw some garbage left behind by some overnight campers like plastics, beer can, cigarette butts and boxes, styrofoams and even bottles of wine! If only the caretaker can provide a garbage bag in exchange for the fee, garbage, especially in the campsite, can be controlled from proliferating in the island.

If you plan to spend the night in Candelaria, don't bother going to Dawal resort or its immediate neighboring resorts. It's very noisy with karaoke and loud music systems. The whole place is cemented and not at all enticing. You can, however, choose to leave your car there or the neighboring resorts for 50 pesos a night if you plan to stay in the island overnight. You can even ask them to arrange a boat for you to/from the island. However, a few hundred meters from Dawal Resort entrance is the entrance to Isla Vista resort. We went to quite a few resorts in the area and, by far, this is the best as it's more spaceous and a bit cheaper.
