Two thumbs up

Simply the best snorkeling my husband and I have ever experienced! Truly a must-see! Corals are amazingly gigantic. Hawaii's Hanauma Bay got nothing on this, I swear.

Good snorkeling place but not a wide variety of fish. It is near the drop off so just make sure you are confident when swimming

Great spot to snorkel. It was quiet wavy when our group made a stop but that did not stop me from jumping into the water with my snorkelling gear. I saw Nemo there.

There is so much going on everywhere. It is fantastic to experience. I could have spent days snorkeling around.

Here you can snorkel for 300m and in that stretch you will see beautiful corals. Just be careful coz in some shallow parts you might hit the corals..

I was really amazed to see a real clown fish. :) Beautiful corals, giant clamps and different fishes! Although, Coron was greatly affected by the typhoon Haiyan, it is still a great place to enjoy snorkeling. Bit sad my friends saw a "pawikan" or giant sea tutle and I wasn't, nevertheless it was a great, amazing experience.

Although there was a part of this garden which was destroyed by super typhoon Haiyan, I still consider this as one of the best in the Philippines.

What a great place to see the beautiful corals with utmost privacy away from other tourists. The water was so clear and warm. Highly recommended in Coron island tour.
