We accidently stumbled across this, and it's simply awful. It's a swamp gone bad into a sewer and probably a building site in time. Don't waste your time here.

If you like to see, what happened if people don't care about envoiroment, have a look at this place and learn! Boracay was a pearl, but if people do not care about it, soon dead forest will be not the only dead place in boracay.

Beautiful but not much to see, not worth making a trip just for this. I wouldn't say this is a place to take tourists anymore which is a pity since Mangroove swamps are really fascinating places

The Dead Forest doesn't exist anymore. It is surrounded by buildings and construction sides and a blue sewage pipe is running through the hole area. It used to be a very special place and it is sad to see it destroyed.
