2. Bagobo Beach

A diver’s dreamland. Also called hole-in-the-wall for an underwater opening populated by assorted aquatic wildlife. Marvel at the Raggy Scorpion Fish as they glide in the water. Have an up-close experience with the Cardinal fish, various species of eels, Butterfly fishes, groupers, and wrasse in an underwater wonderland. A portion of the beach is rocky and coarse past it is the finest sand you will ever touch which feels like powder.

4. Danao Beach

Sought by divers whose purpose is to hug the astounding coral reef formation in the open sea. It is not a continuous beach there are sandy stretches broken by inlets across the rugged coastline. Appreciate the beautiful white beach section complete with coconut trees and powdery sand. If you are planning to hop to other beaches by foot, the thorny bushes and sharp rocks will make you think twice.
