Explore the island’s underwater beauty and prepare to be amazed at its rich and diverse marine life — bright corals, friendly fishes of different size and colours will surely render anyone breathless. If you’re done with the water, head over to the uninhabited island — it’s quaintness and tranquility seems to invite everyone to just lie down on the sand and enjoy the Boracay sun.
