It cost 350p for the two of us (may be more expensive if you don't bring your own snorkel and masks) Among others we saw a massive school of barracudas, a turtle, a couple of reef sharks, giant clams, and various fish and coral. Well...More

I highly recommend visiting here. For 325P, 250P guide (guides take max two people), 25P (entry) and 50P (snorkel hire) you will defiantly see giant clams. Probably see school of Baracuda, turtles and black tip sharks too. Lots of other things if you take the...More

Run down Boardwalk but a nice view non the less, be very careful as most of the boardwalk is in disrepair. Nice view amongst the mangroves and out to sea. Good place for selfies or a private photo shoot.

Rented banka with guide. Visibility was not so good as deep area so sharks and turtle hard to see. In shallow area not many to see. Only few big clamps but not many fish.

The beach itself is beautiful, but I was expecting some nice snorkeling. Perhaps we didn't swim out far enough (200+ meters) but it was so shallow we couldn't snorkel and there were lots of spiny sharp creatures. There was no one else on the whole...More

Like every beach on Siquijor, this one is beautiful, but it is definitely not a "marine sanctuary." My experience, as explained below has prompted me to contact government authorities to try and shut down this "sanctuary". My boyfriend and I arrived and one of the...More

Clear, warm, shallow water allows you to snorkel forever. Be aware of sunburn as the water is perfectly cool in the hot sun. The volunteer (boatmen) are amazingly good and helpful. If you want to see the biggest clam (king clam), this is the place...More
