Haligi Beach is surrounded by rocky semicircle. Here narrow line of sand changes into shallow descent into the sea. You won't find any sights on the beach, it's not inhabited by people, but boats with tourists mooring here is a common thing for Haligi beach.

How to do?
2. Find a big poster on the quay where all the possible itineraries (islands and beaches) and price to travel around them are indicated. It takes 20 minutes to boat to Haligi Beach; price for one way ticket is 400 pesos per person.
3. Make a deal with one of the boat owners. He’ll take you not just to the beach, but also back in agreed time (on average 2-3 hours).
What to take?
1. Flippers, snorkeling mask – if you go snorkeling yourself you should have your own snorkeling equipment.
2. Sunscreen! There are almost no shade on the beach. The only place where you can hide from sunlight is near the rock.
3. Swimsuit, trunks, headwear.
5. Cash to get to the beach and back.
7. Swim rubber footwear to protect the feet from sharp corals.
7. Refreshing drinks. There are no outdoor stands with snacks here, only with hand-made souvenirs and rubber footwear.
When to do?
2. It is very dangerous and irrational to dive without footwear. As soon as you come into the water in a few meters you'll feel sharp seashells, and a little farther - a lot of corals. You can badly hurt you heels!
3. Watch the time and don't make you "captain" look for you around the coast. If you miss the possibility to get back in a boat you come here, be ready to beg owners of other boats to take you back.
