Would you prefer kind people, real nature, nice beach, calm place with great service? Letś go by boat to Carabao island, only 30-40minutes from Boracay bay.

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!

I love the peaceful vibe of Carabao Island. It is known as a twin island of Boracay but with more peaceful ambiance. You can travel the whole island in a day by a motorcycle. Just prepare yourself and let the paradise surprise you.
