The snorkel boats stop at the corals at about 50 meters off the beach, so it is certainly possible to swim there from the beach, enjoy the snorkel on your own and swim back. But be aware, there are constantly boats departuring and arriving, especially...More

We decided to visit the beach for some snorkeling. Unfortunately, there was no one available to take us out on a boat, so stayed in shore. The beach itself was quiet compared to White Beach. Snorkeling isn't great off the beach.

This beach is absolutely busy and packed with visitors but it is definitely a good place for snorkeling. It is very rich with flora and fauna and we had our lunch here during one of the island hopping trips.

This beach is more protected during the Habagat season, when White Beach on the west side is getting the constant and sometimes, heavy winds. However, this is the beach area that all the pump boats and bancas beach at or anchor. Can get quite hectic...More

At the moment the front beach of Boracay Philippines is covered by algae and Tambisaan on the other side of the island is the nicest place to swim and has cheaper accommodation. Travellers will also be closer to the cheaper Street foods and the local...More

It's quite a undeveloped beach I felt which is very good. Not much restaurant, resort nearby, a few local stores selling water and biscuits as well as local food stores. There are two restaurans I can find at the other end of the beach, but...More

Worth going if you are a snorkel enthusiast. Literally walk straight of the beach and within 50 meters the "oh wows" begin! As you keep going out, the landscape keeps changing dramatically. The most soft corals and clown fish I have ever seen in one...More

This was where our island hopping paused to have our buffet lunch. Although the food was not really nice, we managed to see the locals on their natural state. It was fun and relaxing for us to stay here, even for a while.
