Nalusuan Island Marine Sanctuary, Cordova
(4.2/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
Nalusuan Island Marine Sanctuary offers a look at a protected reef teeming with marine life. Originally bearing the dubious name of "kalusuan" (literally translated as "a place of penises") due to its abundant sea cucumber population, the island was turned into a resort and was instrumental in protecting the reef from the dynamite fishing techiniques employed by the local fishermen. Only reachable by boat, the island offers day tours or longer stays in its stilted cabins. Don your snorkel and inspect the abundant aquatic creatures living in the protected coral gardens, take scuba diving lessons, or swim in the wide sandbar. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Nalusuan Island Marine Sanctuary and many more Cordova attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Cordova trip itinerary maker.

  • Details on the tour if you apply 100 percent going Snorkeling Tour. In fact, the Cebu Mactan Island, olango island there are numerous snorkeling or diving points around but here is not the best. Only the facilities are going to be. You can see a lot of fish and not-so-deep water depth may also be known, but it is fantastic. I personally do not recommend the Hill lutung. Deep water can be seen much colorful underwater environments. The protected areas are not going to mess with your travel agent in the DMV.

  • Details on the tour and there's plenty of places nearby if you are looking for a dive on the day Lou getter is a decent choice. When it comes to expect great things wait-and-see is not appropriate.
