Nalusuan Island Marine Sanctuary, Cordova

(4.2/5 based on 100+ 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.

  • It was a great place to spend relaxing at the seaside tourist island should be. Get off the boat and go across the bridge and island, shallow beach. So sometimes I forget and sit in the hammock in the sea but have hammocks and beach volleyball court, but very good. It might be fun to share so many people as scenery very beautiful island and is also-and I think.
