We just parked our bike at the "entrance" and walked into the area. There was no one there so we didn't pay any fee accessing the area. Good marine life and very quiet. Water is very shallow. Not the best in Philippines but good enough...More

This sanctuary has not been hit by the recent typhoon so the coral is very healthy. There are things to see both in the shallows and the deeper parts. We saw many lion fishes ( both under the rocks and in the shallows ). Turtles...More

As in many other places in the Philippines, the word “sanctuary” is more about marketing than preservation. That said, the coral here is very beautiful, and collection of fish varied. I particularly liked the large number clownfish, a black banded sea krait (snake), and many...More

I went 2 hours before high tide and was amazed by the number and diversity of corals and fish that I saw. Before I knew it I'd been exploring for 1.5-2 hours! The sea is very shallow so we were able to see everything so...More

Excellent snorkelling with lots of fish and coral. Not very deep. If you're not staying at the hotel, you have to pay 400 pesos which is redeemable at the hotel restaurant.
