This was my first time snorkeling with legitimate things to see. The staff was very nice and I had a guide for 250 PHP and it lasted about an hour. We saw a huge school of barracudas, a shark, some clown fish, giant clams etc......More

Run down Boardwalk but a nice view non the less, be very careful as most of the boardwalk is in disrepair. Nice view amongst the mangroves and out to sea. Good place for selfies or a private photo shoot.

Rented banka with guide. Visibility was not so good as deep area so sharks and turtle hard to see. In shallow area not many to see. Only few big clamps but not many fish.

Clear, warm, shallow water allows you to snorkel forever. Be aware of sunburn as the water is perfectly cool in the hot sun. The volunteer (boatmen) are amazingly good and helpful. If you want to see the biggest clam (king clam), this is the place...More

This place is so picture-perfect. Even though there are no cottages around, we enjoyed taking pictures of the white sand and clear waters. We didn't try snorkeling though because of time constraints.

White sand, blue water. It was low tide when we went here. It was a long walk before reaching deeper parts of the water for snorkling. We are the only ones there when we visited. We owned the beach! :) No on to bother us....More
