I was here 15 years ago and the corals were great! However not so good now. Maybe a storm has damaged the corals? Or was it the hundreds people who kicked the corals with their fins. You will find better corals at paradise beach resort....More

Located near a beach on Talicud Island is a colorful orchestra of aquatic life. Definitely worth a snorkeling trip and it's just around 15 to 20 min boat ride from the main island of Samal so make sure to include this in your itinerary.

It's well worth taking a boat trip to this spot. The water is very clear and the variety of corals is stunning. Fish life is quite good, too, though I suspect the area is somewhat over-fished. Only irritation is the vendors who try to sell...More

A favourite spot for diving and snorkeling. Most island hopping tours make their stopovers here. Please don't take anything from this fragile environment. Just enjoy the spectacular view underwater.

There was Garbage all over. Halve the Corals are very damaged. Like most of the Philippine Reefs over-fished and exploited.
