Stayed here for 3 nights before heading to Boracay. Had a fantastic time, white beach, great seafood. Swim, snorkel and relax, half an hour away from busy Boracay. This is an unspoilt island, get there before it becomes too commercial and touristy.

Carabao Island is quiet Island with limited tourism, but great scenery and you can snorkel right infront of the hotel within a couple of meters of the beach, I was suprised at the quality of the reef here.

Well worth a visit to escape busy Boracay. it is unspoilt, has fantastic snorkelling spots and a couple of lovely hotels. I recommend The Beach House if you are planning to stay overnight!
