About 2-3 kms away from Benoni Port, outside the main highway, on a long, narrow winding road we come to the Giant Clam Sanctuary. It was a last stop before boarding the boat. The place is manned by very knowledgeable teens, and it was a very informative tour indeed.

I thought the visit to the Giant Clam Sanctuary was just another box to tick off from my visitor's list as we navigated the winding and sloped road leading to the site in Kaliba Beach in Cantaan. We just came from a morning trip to Mantigue Island, a marine sanctuary off the main Camiguin Island which rests on soft white... More

A winding interesting road goes down to the only white beach on the island of Camiguin to the Giant Clam Sanctuary. School kids entertain the tourists from the entrace and after paying a small amount of entrance fee, leading the guests further. Here awaiting more young people the visitor for a little educational tour in fine english and asking at... More

The place is so well maintained and the kids who are discussing about the calms are confident and knowledgeable. The fee is so minimal.

It is really good what they are doing especailly getting the younger generation involved. Snorkeling was also a good experience, the clams actually look like cabbages in the water:) I hope that they get the funding they need and can continue the good work. The road there is very bumpy! There is a nice beach so you can relax there... More

The project is locally funded, and ecologically sound. I wish it would attract more international funding. Volunteers man the site, and the high school tour guide was quite knowledgeable I mistook her for a college senior. They have 7 of the 9 giant clam species in the world, and are propagating them here.

I am not so sure if this sanctuary is that scientific that they pretend to be. Placing all clams in on row even in the sea seems not so a natural environment. As we undersood they'll never realase the clams back to the sea. Also the fee for NOT using they snorkeling is strange. Beware that the sanctuary is very... More

The lady who gave a short tour of the 'captive' clams was knowlageable and charming. And the snorkling scuba guide was also delightful and keen to be helpful. The clams were impressive and it was generally chilled and lovely. However, I saw a couple who tried to walk there: big mistake. It's really best to rent your own motorbike and... More
