  • Please avoid plastic things. Guards are so cooperative out there. Go early and if you worry about your skin, better keep UV Cream 
  • Carbin reef is best for family and friends.I was amazed by the white sand, school of fish, accommodation and more. BE SURE TO COME HERE EARLY since there are no trees around the area so it's kinda hot...  read more »

  • Just had a great time here! The place was awesome...a Must Place to visit, especially for those who love to experience nature, or unwind. The crystal clear water is so inviting for swimming and snorkeling. No garbage allowed here, as the place is always kept clean . The staff, the driver of the pumpboat and his helper were accommodating. Our guide during the snorkeling, Allan, did his job well!
  • It was love at first sight for me upon approaching this islet via a banca. This is actually part of Sagay Marine Sanctuary Reserve. There was no tree in sight but there are some makeshift huts for shade and benches plus tables where you could set up your picnic fare. The cool waters was cyrstal clear and refreshed our tired stressed bodies in no time at all. The best time to go there is early in the morning so that you could sail back for home after lunch before the waves become unruly. But then again, since it was like paradise on earth, you could stay on till mid-afternoon. I would love to go back if I have the chance. Thanks for taking us there Anne Olvido and Maricar Dabao.
