Since the island has a rich marine life, one of the activities can do is snorkeling. You will be able to see the different fishes in the area. If you are into underwater photography, Caohagan Island will be a good place to practice this hobby. Swimming is also another leisure activity you can do at the island. The sand bar on the island is the best place to swim. The waters around the island are kept clean by the residents themselves. Due to this, the waters are crystal clear. The beach is located within the lagoon area of the island, which is on the opposite side from where the outrigger boats normally dock. Cottages are also available for rent.
Going to Caohagan Island requires riding on an outrigger boat. There are a number of tour operators and even boat owners in Maribago in Mactan where visitors can rent a boat. These tour operators have also included the island on their island-hopping activities for tourists.
