The Dimalanta Island

This is a small uninhabited island that is located in the north of Busuanga. As the boats cannot reach the shores due the corals in shallow water you need to start snorkeling right from where the boat is anchored. You can come snorkeling towards the shore.

The Banana Island

Banana Island deserves to be mentioned among the snorkeling list because of its white sand beaches and the crystal clear blue waters. The more you get inside the sea water the more you come across the huge varieties of Corals and fishes.

Snorkeling is more fun and enjoyable when you can see diverse varieties of corals and fish species in the presence of clear waters that offer good visibility. Palawan is one such place and also a very popular destination for snorkeling and there are a number of places to choose as your ideal spot for snorkeling in this archipelagic province. You can also go for diving, and for that matter Coron is the ideal destination as it offers the best diving spots in the country.
