As the title says, my friends and I DID ENJOYED THIS. We have lots of photos to prove it. 😊 we availed of a tour, which includes out lunch on the island. I don't eat veggies a lot. But there was a leafy vegetable marinated in a mixture of flour and something and deep fried that made it crispy. It... More

Beautiful stretch of sand and clear water. A small and crowded island. But having lunch there was a good experience.

It was raining when we got there, but i enjoyed snorkeling there. Try the diving board or get a body massage if you want other activities other than snorkeling. There was a small restaurant where you can get something to eat. But during our visit, there was not many option, however we enjoyed what we eat. Luli Island is a... More

creative name for an island LuLi short for "Lulubog" (submerge) and Lilitaw (appear) characteristic of the island during the tides. Great for landscape picture taking.

The name is a shortened version of Lulubog (submerge) Lilitaw (appear) aptly called because of the island's condition during low and high tide. The main attraction of this island is probably the springboard diving which is set roughly about 8 feet above water. It is actually quite fun! The net confined swimming area has a few corals and fishes which... More

There's an area/house here where you can chill and order drinks, a diving board to conquer your fear of heights, and an area by the beach where you could feed fishes. It was pretty fun. While feeding them, I spotted a lone fish with very striking colours. To this day though, I still don't know what kind of fish it... More

We were in Luli Island on Easter Sunday at around 7:45am. It was almost deserted at that time so we had the swimming area to ourselves. We got to swim with the fishes literally. There's just so many kinds in different colors and sizes. It was simply awesome that we can't get over it.

Short for "LUlubog-LIlitaw", roughly translated as "now you see it, now you don't", Lu-li island vanishes during high tide and reappears during low tide. The tidal motion keeps the glittering white sands pristine and very picturesque indeed.
