For those who love the ocean and enjoy what's beneath the surface of the ocean, this is the place for you. You will enjoy seeing the taklobo or giant clams in their natural habitat.

This "sanctuary" is in fact Rows and columns of alignes clams. The "owners" took all the clams around to put them on a beach and make a lucrative business with that. Despite of their speech there is nothing ecological there. You have to pay the entrance on the beach ???? the right of snorkeling, an environmental fee and renting of... More

Travel to the clam sanctuary was a little tricky because it can't be reached by a tricycle bus (motorella) due to the steep approach to the bay down an unmade road. However it was well worth hiring a car for the day. When you walk into the place you're greeted with strange signs about "behave morally" and other warnings and... More

This is one of my favorite place in Camiguin, secluded, beautiful beach, the clams were a wonder to see. I had a wonderful time snorkeling and just enjoying the scenery.

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

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.
