Put some buoys in the water and call is a marine sanctuary....that is what this is - you can find snorkling like this many other places.

Teeming with coral and fish, and just in front of the Coco Grove resort where we had a wonderful stay.

Tubod Marine reserve is accessible from shore, via Coco Grove. Snorkelers pay 50 pesos each for an all-day pass - and you'll want to go in again & again! The reserve is large with many different landscapes - deep coral gorges and shallow urchin-filled sandy stretches. I swam for hours and never saw the same thing twice.

Right out front Coco Grove Resort (a great place) is this nice marine sanctuary. Not the best in the Philippines but pretty good for being just off the beach!

We stayed at coco grove so snorkelling at the marine sactuary was real easy. We could just go into the water from the beach and snorkel. And yes, the snorkelling was very very good. No turtles (I guess for that one must go to apo island), but a lot of live corals, and the usual colourful fishes like butterfly, angel, anemone, trigger, sturgeon, etc.

The highlights of my snorkelling were an exceptionally colourful spanish dancer (or was it a slug? I am still not sure), about a foot long, a huge school of at least twenty black spotted anemone fish, and trumpet fish.

The water was a bit cool (a cold current?) So I suggest you wear proper clothes (or a thin wet suit) when snorkelling here - else you will feel like peeing very soon! He he!
