Crystal Cove Island Resort Boracay
This is not a like a resort or hotel where you will have to check in while in Boracay. Crystal Cove Island Resort, formerly called Tagwatian island, is an all-in-one island hopping destination. Crystal Cove offers several things to do in the island:
- Trekking – explore the 2.5 hectare island while burning calories and loosing track of time with the nice views and refreshing wind.
- Cove adventure – Swim on a natural pool! Feel the waves, enjoy small rock formations.
- 360 Panoramic View – Get the hang of the 360 panoramic view of Boracay island, Carabao Island, Caticlan Island, Romblon, Sibuyan island and turtle island! Yup! All those you can see on top!!!Pigeon Feeding at Crystal Cove Boracay
- Snorkeling, of course. – But since this is in a cove, bring some crackers and enjoy the company of some fish friends.
- Visit mini museum showcasing 3D paintings and optical illusions.
- Witness blossoming of lotus (if you come early before 10am). They start to bloom at 6:30 am and fully opens at around 8:00 am to 9:00 am and starts to close and hide again at 10:30 am.
- Pigeon – feeding! Catch this on 2 schedules during the day and be a child again.
- Enjoy the white beach and relax.
The only way to go the island is through chartered boat transfer. Travel time varies depending on point of location and sea condition but range from 20 – 45 mins. Chartered tour package costs from P999 – P750.
