Take a beautiful island, cover it with pebble-covered concrete viewing platforms, the odd concrete animal, some Hawaiian dancers, displays of internet memes that you've probably seen on Facebook and all built around a small cave with a fake rock formation. Tour groups do get a...More

I'm sure for some this place is great, but for me it was disappointing.I'd prefer if they had just kept it natural, there was too much concrete. Some great views and nice spots, like the caves but it was way too over developed. Probably a...More

Went on a private boat ride and visited this Cove. Went early enough, 9am or 10am, and no one was on the island. Went down to some caves and took wonderful pictures with beautiful backgrounds. Very nice with no one on it.

I paid 4,200 for Island hoping for 4. But due to strong wind and waves, Crystal cove is the only island we have visited. Honestly, it's totally waste of time and money. Small cave and some rock formations and that's it. There's a small store...More

Tourist trap. An island that’s converted into a trap of nothing. It does have some coves (caves). But nothing really worth seeing or doing. Was part of a boat trip. (Also a waste of time honestly if you are in Boracay). Don’t get me wrong....More

It’s a small island that was transformed to receive tourists. The look of the island in itself when you’re inside it’s interesting, many places to take photos. But when you hear the name Crystal Cove, you expect something majestic, and that wasn’t definitely the case.

Crystal Cove is such a quirky little place, full of surprises. We had about an hour here which was enough to walk around the island (with small children) and return before time to get back on the boat. You could spend more time here but...More

Visited here as last stop on a Viator island hop tour. Such a pleasure to visit and many unexpected surprises including a secret cave which was wonderful. A whole heap of things to see and a Great Walk at the end of a great tour.
