Best beach and snorkel areas

I will be going to Panglao soon. Still looking for where to stay on the island. What are the nicest beach areas there?

And resorts that are 5 minutes from the beach do they have easy beach access?

Any resorts that I shold avoid there?

Is there any snorkeling right off the beach that you don't have to rent a boat to go to?

I guess many will say Balicasag is the best snorkel spot but you have to rent a boat to get there.

As for resort, there are some that is near to the beach. As long as you are at Paragayo resort area, you are already very near to the beach.

We visited Panglao in December and just loved it! We stayed at Alona beach (alone tropical) with is very close to the beach. But the most beautiful beach we found was at "bohol beach club". Just crazy beautiful, but not so much to do so we thought Alona was cozier with the small village behind the beach and what not. The Philipines is very cheap and it's very easy to get around. I just finished making my shortfim a couple of days ag from our stay on Panglao, you can find it here:

Maybe it can give some inspiration? Just ask more questions if you want :D
