The corals were actually alive! There were a variety of beautiful corals and plenty of fish to see. This was the best snorkeling experience throughout my trip in the Philippines.

There is a famous fish here called the Napoleon Fish, we looked and looked but couldn't find him, most people do though, we were just unlucky - amazing snorkeling spot - well worth going - the quality of the coral and fishes were amazing, really was like Finding Nemo

The Coral Garden in Coron is so colorful and so serene. I was in the water for more than an hour just watching the beautiful fish swimming and all the colorful coral. A definite must see!
