“Not for swimming”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

The water here is not as clean as White Beach. People are here for the wind. They do kite boarding and wind surfing here.

“affordable water activities!”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Well, activities in Boracay actually depends on the wind (hanging amihan or habagat). This time of the year, the activities are on the other side of white beach. The price of each water activity is a lot cheaper in Bulabog than when they are on the white beach. The sand is not as fine though...Bulabog beach is not for walking but for water activities.

“Good for kite boarders, not for swimmers”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Bolabog is a good place to watch kite boarders do their stuff but not a place for swimming. The waters are shallow and choked with seaweed and you'll see sewage drains on the beach emptying out into the waters right on shore. You can tell that the sewage is bad because the parts of the water were it empties are the only parts without seaweed.

if you want to swim, stick to White Beach or Diniwid Beach.

“The Island Hopping Men Bring Us Here”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

We were approached by local men in White Beach selling excursions. We agreed to have helmet diving, snorkeling and Crocodile Island tour. He picked us up at hotel in Station 2 and get on trike to this place.

This beach have lotsa activities to do. Its a great place if you want to do those activities but forget it if you prefer to lie down on the beach. The beachfront is quite dirty, but underwater off the beach is the nice place to be.

We do helmet diving. A boat bring us some 800 metres off the beach. The coral is so so. But we like the fact that they taking pictures underwater and give us a CD. We paid Php 3500 for all the activities. We suspect someone have steal our money when we are underwater. My wallet short Php 1000. But I dont raised the issues since I should be more alert on this. Leave your valueable belongings at hotel before starting any activities here.
