Our most recent trip was the Phillipines, with a focus on snorkeling. I was hoping for turtles and sea snakes, and got plenty of both! Although the snorkeling wasn't as amazing as Raja Ampat in Indonesia, it was pretty great! Very good snorkeling, with nice water temperatures, and affordable accommodations. We flew to Manila and then took a domestic flight to Cebu. Our first snorkel spot was Nalusuan. This is a small marine sanctuary, and a popular daytrip destination from Cebu. We stayed at Nalusuan Island Resort so we could snorkel when the daytrippers were gone. Here are some of the underwater sights.
Believe it or not, the snorkeling only got better after Nalusuan! I will try to get photos up from the other destinations before too long. I would not hesitate to go back to the Phillipines!!
