Crystal Cove Island Resort is a private beach island near Boracay. The main attractions of the island are its two coves and white sand beaches, which offer great opportunities for swimming and snorkelling in the clear blue waters just off shore. Located in the Sibuyan Sea, about a 20-minute boat ride from north-eastern Boracay, the uninhabited island is also within easy reach of Caticlan.
Crystal Cove Island Resort is a popular stop-off point for island-hoppers offering a wide range of activities, such as trekking and cave exploration, sunbathing and snorkelling, pigeon feeding and sea kayaking. The well-preserved natural environment and resort also houses a museum and an aviary as alternatives to the beach. Though the resort’s two coves are the main draw, the area does offer picturesque views perfect for picnics and relaxing, as well as caves to explore for the adventurous.
Getting there requires a boat ride from either Boracay or Caticlan. As the boats, or bangka, are much less frequent from Caticlan Port, most visitors from Caticlan make the journey to Boracay first, before heading to the island. Boats leave from Cagban and Tambisaan ports regularly, usually as part of island-hopping packages. Shop around for the best deal to suit your needs.
