Laurel Island, Boracay: a Haven of Macro Photography

Laurel Island, Boracay Laurel Island, next to Crocodile Island, lies less than 30 minutes by boat from Boracay. It is only 9 kilometers (5 nautical miles) from our Scotty's Dive Center in Boracay, heading south-east on the compass. It is, in fact, two small islands, known as Big Laurel and Small Laurel.

Laurel Island is a must-visit destination for anyone interested in macro photography. It's impossible to describe in words; you have to see it for yourself. If you need an underwater camera, ask us!

Photographing Laurel Island, Boracay

The water currents are moderate-to-strong, but swimming around Laurel Island is still easy. And the weather allows you to go snorkeling here all year round.

This tropical island comes alive from 5-meter (15-foot) shallow water to a depth of 20 meters (65 feet). Bring as many memory cards as you can for your underwater camera. The best macro photography opportunities are here!

Less-strong swimmers can still enjoy swimming and snorkeling around your boat rental. At the end of the day, everyone will have one desire: to return to Laurel Island for more!
