Crystal Cove Island
Crystal Cove is a private small island 20-minutes away from Boracay that is popular for its two caves, pristine white beach, and the turquoise waters surrounding it.
From the moment you step foot on Crystal Cove, a wave of fun will welcome you — festival dancers moving to the beat of a tribal music welcomes tourists to the dazzling island. This popular stop-off point for island hoppers offers an endless list of activities for tourists such as exploring the nearby caves, swimming in the waters of Sibuyan Sea, snorkeling, trekking, and visiting the local aviary. The relaxing ambiance and tranquility of this island also make it a great place to have a picnic with your family and to relax — standing on the edge of the rock formations watching the Sibuyan Sea waves crash to the island’s walls is enough to keep you captivated.
