White sand, palm fringed beaches and a laid back tropical island vibe await you in El Nido. If you can make it out of your hammock the diving is equally as impressive. Highlights include diving South…
Around Puerto Princesa, El Nido and Coron Island, expect healthy coral reef awash with the different colors of reef fish like angelfish, parrotfish, surgeonfish, pufferfish, groupers and schools of lunar fusilier and yellowtail snapper. Sandy bottoms often reveal bluespotted ribbontail rays and blacktip sharks patrol the reefs. Green sea turtles are also frequent visitors and lookout for other critters like eels, nudibranch and crabs.
Out at Tubbataha Reef, be astounded by the rich marine biodiversity of the area. Whale sharks are often seen cruising by the reef and manta rays come to visit cleaning stations. The stronger the currents, the more large creatures you are likely to see. Sharks like grey reef sharks and whitetip sharks are common and if you are very lucky, you might see a tiger shark or a hammerhead shark. Otherwise, keep your eyes to the blue for the likes of eagle rays and game fish like mackerel, trevally and tuna. From the surface, whales and dolphins have been spotted.
