I came to Carabao and stayed in the Beach House, but wanted to dive. The dive instructor at White Beach, Nick, is a German ex-pat and took me through the advanced PADI training. He was very attentive, personable, and funny, and the five dives we did were great. I'd highly recommend this area for diving; there's a great reef wall...

after one week on beautiful Boracay island we decided to escape to the nature for a while. Booked beach front room which got great views. Nice quiet beach, restaurant, bar. The owner Nina became our good friend for a chat. She organised for us daily island tours, evening dinning out. Nina is always around to help with a big smile....

Pulling up on the beach at Lanas on a trip to explore Carabao (local name ‘Hambil') for a few days, my boyfriend and I were excited to see just the kind of open-air, beach-chic place that you’d expect from a peaceful, quiet, un-touristy island like Carabao. Shells dangled from strings, hammocks beckoned, and the peace and quiet was just what...

Ordinarily I don't have the time of day to review resorts that I have stayed in but in this case I will make an exception as I feel its my duty to warn people about this run down resort and the truly nasty couple that manage it – as difficult as it is for me, I will try and keep...

Really enjoyed our 4 day stay in white beach carabao. Nina and nick were very welcoming and friendly and being the only guests on the island we got to relax and enjoy the surroundings with no other visitors about. We thoroughly enjoyed the island tour and would recommend it as a day out! The food was also delicious and we...

After 17 years spent in monastic environment in Korea I decided that it was time to take some time off and go for short holidays from my always very sheduled temple life. I got the cheapest plane ticket possible and flew to Philippines. Few people who visited Boracay many years ago suggested that I go there but after reading an...

Don't expect luxury on this fast-developing island. Within the decade, it will boom, but in the meantime adventure tourists will revel in the simple, relaxing tropical pleasures on offer. European hosts, Nick and Nina, went out of their way to cater to our every need. "You don't need cash on the island," we were told. We just billed everything to...

First, Cabarao is a great island. GH owners on Boracay might discourage you to visit (some silly competition issue), but those two islands are so different and can totally complement each other. Carabao is pristine, natural and with a strategy on smart tourism development. If you’re tired of Boracay beach where thousands of tourists will poke you with their selfie...

The discovery of this little gem just made up for all of the disappointment from Boracay. All of the tension in our brains simply dissolved away the moment we sat down on our balcony (yes, a private seaview balcony from our room). Despite being so close to Boracay, Carabao is so well hidden from the Boracay crowd as it is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Carabao Island is only 30min away from the world famous Boracay. If you want to get away from the busy Boracay and enjoy the real Philippine country with friendly people, you will love Isla de Carabao.Carabao is what Boracay was 20 years ago with lots of nature and empty beaches. The White Beach Dive & Kite Resort is right on the beach next to the fishing village of Lanas. 12 comfortable cottages make sure, that you can relax perfectly. The bar serves cool and exotic drinks and the restaurant cooks only fresh food for you. We go daily to the market to choice only the fresh fish or veggies for our guests.In between shoot some pool or have a dip in our Jacuzzi. For you recreation we have a fully equipped dive shop, managed by a PADI instructor, The kiting/wind surfing center offers rental equipment and kiting courses. We have also mountain bikes for rent and organize snorkeling and sailing-trips daily.We have a very personal service and make sure that all of our guests have a great time. From the 1st Jan. 2014, the resort has a new management with improved service. ... more   less
