Beautiful but not much to see, not worth making a trip just for this. I wouldn't say this is a place to take tourists anymore which is a pity since Mangroove swamps are really fascinating places

The Dead Forest doesn't exist anymore. It is surrounded by buildings and construction sides and a blue sewage pipe is running through the hole area. It used to be a very special place and it is sad to see it destroyed.

Saw it by coincidence. Notyhing much to talk about, but recently a bar/resto opened right next to it, on the Bulabog side, so at least now you can have a cold beer or what you like and watch it from their terrace, or just enjoy your cold drinks.

The once beautiful and scenic dead forest has fallen victim to Boracay's relentless resort developers.

The dead forest isn't exactly geared up as a tourist attaction. There are no signposts and we just stumbled across it. There were no other tourists along the way and we weren't even sure we were allowed in when we got there. A family living in a hut by the gate charged us 20pesos to enter, there was nothing stating... More
