Fish Abound

No need to go deep as a few steps from the shore you can see schools and schools of fish darting in the water.

We stayed here at Cocogrove. It;s ideal for snorkeling/scuba diving. You can only go swimming in the morning when it's high tide.

Take a dive boat trip and dive or snorkel. You don't need to stay at Coco Grove to access the sanctuary. There is a pedestrian access track with a sign on the main road between the three acces roads to Coco Grove. 50 peso once you get to the beach. Old and well used gear can be rented for 250... More

It's the beach of the coco grove resort. You can acces trough the fisherman portion of beach tha it's in between the resort. There it's a chart with fees to pay, but nobody it's around to collect, like in any of the other beaches, so just keep walking. There are some interesting things to see, urchin, clown fish, sea stars,... More

I did not see this in particular but my wife and kids saw the marine life around and were delighted by it.

Very well protected marine reserve. Careful you don't step on an urchin at low tide. The snorkelling is the best on Siquijor.

Lots of jellyfish! Did not enjoy it much because of the sting! Use a rash guard. Sting marks lasts for weeks.

It may not be up to Red Sea coral reef standards, but if you want to see coral and larger fish around the over-fished waters of Siquijor, this is a good place. It is not that large but one can easily spend a half-day exploring it (less if need be) and the size and variety of fish is so much... More

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.
