Rockin' Reefs of Palawan

Tubbataha Reef
by Nathania Laforteza 1

In the Sulu Sea, Philippines – at the geographic center of world marine biodiversity – lies the most breathtaking underwater experience for scuba divers. Tubbataha Reef is one of the best dive sites in the world. An astonishing density and diversity of coral and fish can be found in the crystal-clear underwater sanctuary.

When I went to Palawan, the first thing that I really wanted to do was to explore the wonderful islands that they can offer. I searched the internet for the best scuba dive site and Tubbataha Reefs was the first one to pop out. I look for blogs and reviews about the place and I was really fascinated about it. I immediately booked my trip there and went on to explore the magical Tubbataha Reef.

The Tubbataha Reef is the country's first national park and is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I could not argue with that anymore! Tubbataha Reef deserves to be in the UNESCO World Heritage and to be the "Top 8 Best Dive Site" in the world because it really is amazing. It's really overwhelming to see something like that on news articles or on the internet. This goes to show that Philippine really have a lot of things to offer to the tourist.

This is a place for environmentally-conscious travelers with an adventurous spirit. Visitors must be aware of the things that they do while they are visiting Tubbatha Reefs. Every traveler must know where to put there trashes on the right places and must know how to respect the corals and the fishes. Tubataha is not owned by a single person or any private organization; it belongs to every Filipino. It is our duty to conserve the reefs for the benefit of the present and future generations.

So what are you waiting for? Plan your Summer vacation now and book for Palawan! Dive in with us and swim with all the fishes in Tubbataha Reef! There are so much more to see there and you would not be disappointed!
