Crystal Cove Island

Crystal Cove Island is a beautiful, secluded small island located between Caticlan and Boracay. This two hectare island is found upon solid rock, a gallery of haunting niches and sea caves bordered by crystal - green waters. The sight of this pristine sea immediately calls to your innate thirst for things tropical, and as soon as you get there, the right thing to do is just plunge right away and bask with abandon. Other than the native huts and some islands statues, the main draw in this place is its two caves.
Cave One features smooths rocks and a refreshing pool that opens-up to the sea. Cave Two features a small tunnel which you have to pass to see the coral shores which also lead to the open sea. Entrance fee on the place is only Php 100.00. Here are few shots I have taken while on this island:

  2. the last time i visited this island most of the structures were still under construction. we also did some snorkeling a few meters away. i remember the boatman called the island by another name, it's said to be "owned" by the Laurels.

  23. palm chairs are a riot. i don't think one gets sad/lonely around these parts. i bet this place/boracay is a super duper funk buster.

  26. The local government of Aklan should commend you for the great work you've done, promoting Boracay and its neighboring island.

    Great post as usual! Unfortunately, I'm beginning to realize that I don't have time to see it all... ;)

  45. Is this a private island? Reminds me Elephant Island in Marinduque, being developed by the Koreans as a 6 star Beach Resort.

  46. Hello Guys! I know, i haven't be able to comment back on your comments to this post. Blame it on my heavy work loads these past few days. If ever I find time, I opt to post a while and visit as much blog as I can. (But then, it has become irregular too.) Hope you bear with me and I promise to find more blogging time soon. Take Care Everyone and BIG THANKS for the visit.
