    interesting… hoping it’s a good swim experience too. most of the dive sites i’ve been too are fun for divers,,, but not as much for beach bummers

      Ian, Punta Ballo is ok for swimming although there’s not much of activity such as those that can be found in Boracay.

    Glady, great info. We are planning a circumnavigation of Negros by motorcycle starting from here in Tombobo Bay. We will add these to our “must see & do” list. Thanks!

      That sounds fun! Negros Occidental doesn’t have a lot of white sand beaches unlike in Negros Oriental. Punta Ballo’s sand is not as powdery white as Boracay but it’s clean and not so crowded.
