looking for a reasonable hotel (less than $100 per night) on Panglao that I can snorkel from the beach without getting run over by boats. Really not interested in nightlife and have heard that Alona beach is not great due to sea weed anyway. Does anyone know which beach is best for quiet snorkel. I am spending few weeks in Philippines travelling around to various snorkel spots so am only interested in Panglao. Is Dumaluan Beach better for snorkeling ? Have considered Dumaluan Beach Resort 2.
Maybe there is even a quieter, better snorkelling area of alona ? Is Balicasag Island my only real option ? Anyone have experience with the transfers for Balicasag, I am travelling alone so I suspect boat trip will be pricey.
Thanks in advance for any help/advice you can provide.
