A visit to Boracay is most certainly not complete without a visit to the Dead Forest or the Sunken Forest. Located at the tip of Barangay Balabag, the Dead Forest is an incredibly popular tourist attraction and has become a favorite amongst filmmakers and photographers. This eerie but enchanting attraction was once just a normal patch of mangrove trees. But after a local dam that kept off saltwater collapsed, saltwater flowed into the forest, resulting in the death of the mangroves and trees. Now what remain in this strangely beautiful attraction are dead tree trunks jutting out from the surface of the stagnant water. Surrounded by old folk tales based on the supernatural, the Dead Forest offers an atmosphere like no other. Visitors might even get the chance to see some animals seeking respite from the heat of the sun, while here.

Muslims visiting the Dead Forest will not be able to find prayer facilities. Muslim tourists will therefore either have to find a clean place outdoors to offer their prayers, or they can make use of the facilities offered at the one and only mosque in Boracay, the Boracay Muslim Mosque.
Since the Dead Forest is frequented by tourists, visitors will be able to find one rest stop here. However, they may not be able to find any Halal dishes on the menu. For Halal cuisine, Muslim tourists could dine at one of the few Halal restaurants in Boracay. Kasbah Moroccan Café, Khalil Muslim Food Stall, The Kingdom Restaurant & Coffee Shop and True Food Indian Cuisine are all known to serve Halal food.
