If you are planning to stay at this resort then you should check out these reviews: www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g1370797-d2056192-r127094151-Blue_Cove_Island_Resort-Port_Barton_Palawan.html The reviews here are for Blue Cove as an attraction because you can go on just a boat trip to the place for lunch or for a snorkel.
