The island is large but has very few attractions. But the owner of "The Hauz" Helped us find those who were worth visiting. We rented 3 motorbikes, that drove us all around the Island. We dropped by a small bat cave. As well as a place were you can dive from cliffs. But we dropped the diving because of low... More

just a 30-min boat ride from Bora. This island ist the quiet and peaceful version of La Boracay. You have to smell and feel the super fresh air as there are no public transpo. We went to St. Joseph Church, 5-13 Convenience Store (7-11 store), the small building near the beach, schools and the municipal hall. I recommend this place.

I love it because it has the feel and vibe of what an Island should be. Quiet and peaceful. It is better compared to its more commercialized next door neighbor Boracay. You can really relax here.

this island is perfect gateway from busy Boracay. Carabao is 3 times bigger than Boracay but has only 40 rooms to accommodate guests. pristine, few visitors, lovely people. several activities like island tour, bat cave, cliff jumping, diving, snorkeling can be done here. I loved it!

It's my second time to visit the place, and this time..........a longer stay, larger itinerary and new discoveries. We stayed in Barangay Busay overviewing the Town of Santa Fe in the nearby island. People are friendly and approachable indeed especially the children. PLACES TO SEE: 1.Tagaytay Point (with a breathtaking view of Boracay Island) - Barangay Combot 2. Lanas Beach... More

though the fee of boat is not cheap, but there's so quiet and natural, experience the local life there is the best choice!
