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. No one even from the barangay is here, so we are not sure if we... More

Nice snorkeling, but very rustic environment. The guys were very friendly, but no diving equipement to rent.

The barangay caretaker of the Marine Sanctuary charged us snorkelling fee of P50 per person. There's additional P150 if you bring an underwater camera.

It's a good 200 meters from the shore to where it deepens! We swam gingerly in 18 inches of water or less, over coral and urchins, to get to where things opened up and you could really see things. Then it's nice—good (but not great) variety of coral and fish. One clam. No eels. Parrotfish, angels, clownfish, but nothing more... More

I visited this marine sanctuary at 1300 hours on a weekday and was the only snorkeller. It was low tide. I waded for 70 metres to get to the coral: swimming was difficult because of the tiny depth of water. As a result I sustained some coral cuts. Be more intelligent than I was, research the tides if you can... More
