A somewhat small beach/marine area with no fishing and shell collection. Reef is in good condition compared to the reef outside the sancturary area. Many species of reef fish and other species and good visibility. Definetly worth a visit and for me still interesting and surprising after ten days of daily snorkeling

This sanctuary is right on the beach at CG Resort. Like so many ventures on Siquijor, this is a great attempt to protect and grow the natural sea-life for others to enjoy. Watch the urchins as you venture out further to snorkeling (and diving) that was a little spoilt by post-typhoon weather but still very beautiful.

We stayed in Coco Grove Resort where this marine sanctuary is located and was able to see a lot of variety of fish even near the beach. Worth seeing!

Put some buoys in the water and call is a marine sanctuary....that is what this is - you can find snorkling like this many other places.

Teeming with coral and fish, and just in front of the Coco Grove resort where we had a wonderful stay.

Tubod Marine reserve is accessible from shore, via Coco Grove. Snorkelers pay 50 pesos each for an all-day pass - and you'll want to go in again & again! The reserve is large with many different landscapes - deep coral gorges and shallow urchin-filled sandy stretches. I swam for hours and never saw the same thing twice.

Right out front Coco Grove Resort (a great place) is this nice marine sanctuary. Not the best in the Philippines but pretty good for being just off the beach!

We stayed at coco grove so snorkelling at the marine sactuary was real easy. We could just go into the water from the beach and snorkel. And yes, the snorkelling was very very good. No turtles (I guess for that one must go to apo island), but a lot of live corals, and the usual colourful fishes like butterfly, angel,... More

This is a great reef to spend the day kayaking and snorkeling. It's eight to twenty feet deep, with big corals and a variety of fish. There's even the occasional sea turtle.
