Snorkelling Spots in Boracay
There are a good number of snorkelling spots here led by the waters around Crocodile Island. Despite its name, there are no crocodiles here but plenty of corals and marine life such as angelfish, banded sea snakes, cornet fish, moray eels, and a lot more. The water current can be too strong so be extra cautious if you're not a confident swimmer. Snorkelling in Boracay can be done as part of an island-hopping tour although some interesting areas are only a few minutes’ walk or trike ride away. Puka Beach has some nice reefs as well as Tambisaan and Ilig Iligan.
Balinghai Cove, located off the northern part of Boracay, is also teeming with sea creatures. There are anemones and sea urchins however make sure to wear aqua shoes since some of the coral is quite sharp.
