Swim away from tourist beaches

For a swim and enjoy the transparent blue water on the island, you can enjoy the White beach, a long white sand beach popular with tourists. But for more privacy, we recommend that you focus on two distinct locations: Carabao Island and Diniwid Beach. Carabao Island is located north of Boracay.

With a similar climate and equally transparent water, this island is the little-known to the general public. Here you can enjoy the calm of the place and relax on a white sandy beach and enjoy a cocktail under the sunset. To get there, you will have to find a boat bound for Hambil. Please note that boats are only available in the morning at 8:30 a.m. So you’re going to have to get up early. On the island, you can also fully enjoy your holiday without being polluted by wifi.
