You’ll be on board an outrigger boat headed northward to Carabao Island, about 11km away from Boracay. Locally known as Hambil, the island is about 8.51 square miles and is sparsely populated, with about 10,000 residents living there. It is filled with many beach spots that are ideal for swimming, snorkeling, getting a tan, and enjoying the fresh sea breeze near the shore, which is lined with coconut trees. It is said that it got its name from Spanish colonizers who noticed how the island was shaped like a carabao from afar.
One of the outdoor and water activities to enjoy at Carabao Island is snorkeling, where a rich marine life beneath the sea is thriving with colorful reefs and fish. There are also various areas for sightseeing, cliff diving, and caving activities. The northern section of Carabao Island is where most cliff diving sites are located. Views of breathtaking rock formations set against blue waters can be enjoyed at the cliff jumping sites, while a small cave with a tiny swimming hole filled with more turquoise blue waters can also be found on the outskirts.
