Top 5 Best Islands in the World for Snorkelling on a Budget

by Alex Chiruta on September 24, 2019

One of the great things about snorkelling is that you don’t have to fork out tonnes of money for good equipment or certifications. In fact, you can discover some of the world’s most stunning beaches without having to burst the bank! If you want to go snorkelling in paradise, here are the 5 best islands in the world for snorkelling on a budget… 

1. Philippines

These gorgeous islands are full of sparkling turquoise beaches and untouched reefs just waiting to be discovered. The Philippines is one of the most affordable snorkel destinations in the world, and still off the beaten track! Head to Apo Island, Luzon, Siquijor, Balicasag, and Nalusauan for the best snorkelling spots.

2. Bali, Indonesia

Bali is a bit more touristy than the Philippines, but there’s plenty to discover under the sea. Here you can snorkel in a shipwreck and discover a coral garden in Tulamben, swim with manta rays in Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan, and snorkel with wild sea turtles in Menjangan Island.

3. Bahamas

There are over 700 islands in the Bahamas, filled with colourful reefs, tropical fish, and crystal clear water! For the best snorkelling destinations head to Sapona, Bimini, Rose Island, Bonaire, or Stuart’s Cove. Here you’ll find more expensive luxury places as well as budget-friendly spots to stay.

4. Fiji

Fiji is an ultra-affordable snorkelling destination with pristine reefs and healthy sea life that makes for great snorkelling adventures! Head to Rainbow Reef for amazing coral, Namena Marine Reserve for fish species, and Beqa Island if you want to jump straight into the water as soon as you land…

5. Thailand

Thailand is full of incredible islands that make for the perfect budget-friendly snorkelling holiday. Head to Ao Mae Yai Bay on Koh Surin Nuea island for abundant marine life, Koh Tao is great for coral life, and snorkel in Ko Phi Phi to catch the famous beach from Leonardo’s film.

The last thing you want on a snorkelling holiday is to be stuck with dodgy rented snorkels that leak or don’t fit right. Before you pack those bags, make sure you’ve got a comfortable, durable snorkel mask that’ll have you snorkelling happily for hours.
