Boracay island has some of the most amazing spots available for snorkeling enthusiasts.
- The Bulabog Beach: One of the best places to indulge in snorkeling at is the Bulabog Beach of Boracay. This is just on the opposite side of the White beach. You can find plenty of colorful reefs (though not as good looking as those at Palawan) and corals here. You can rent snorkeling gear, life vests and other supplies directly from the boatmen there. When you are at the Bulabog Beach, you won’t have to look too hard to find your snorkeling spot because there are plenty of them! One of the best things you can do here is to feed bread to the fishes here; they are not shy really and would grab the bread from your hand even before you realize it!
One great thing about the Bulabog beach is the easy availability of transportation: any boat you hire, it is sure to take you to this beach! The bad thing is that since a lot of tourists come here for snorkeling, you may feel the pressure of the crowd and may not always have the snorkeling spot to yourself; in those times

Millions of years ago, the volcanos of Erciyes, Hasandag and melendiz mountains erupted and covered Cappadocia with a layer of tuff. Over millennia, this tuff layer was eroded, producing earth formations that, in turn, inspired cave art that has carried the imprint of ancient civilisations to our times. The earliest human settlements in Cappadocia date to the Palaeolithic Period, and the written history of the region goes back to the Hittites. Throughout its history, Cappadocia has served as an important trading post and bridge between the various lands of the Silk Road.
In the Upper Miocene epoch, the volcanos under the lakes erupted and spouted lava. The lava formed a plateau, a landscape that smaller eruptions constantly altered. During the Upper Pliocene epoch, the Kizilirimak River, together with lesser streams and lakes, cut deep into the tuff plateau, and the region gradually began to take its present shape.
Wind and rainwater flowing down the sides of valleys eroded the tuff structure, and sculpted the formations known as “fairy chimneys”. The principle type of “fairy chimney” in Cappadocia is the conical rock structures topped with a hat, either a cone or a mushroom shaped cap.
