Bacuit Bay Snorkeling

The 6th most popular snorkel dive spot in Philippines.

North of El Nido off Pagulasian Island, the snorkeling in Bacuit Bay Marine Reserve is known for water clarity, diverse marine life and coral reefs. When snorkeling at Bacuit Bay Marine Reserve, you can expect to see parrotfish, sea turtles, manta rays and sharks. It is a UNESCO biosphere reserve with pristine reefs.

The town of El Nido is a great base for exploring the Bacuit Bay snorkeling. This island is a one hour flight from Manila.

Tip - While snorkeling off Bacuit Bay, make sure to use a diver down flag since the boaters tend to drive fast and be unaware of snorkelers in the water.

Overall, Bacuit Bay is the 6th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 12 snorkeling dives in Philippines.
