The shoals around the Batangas, Philippines area are among the purest for divers and ocean lovers.
Indeed, this area is part of the biodiversity of the Coral Triangle—extending from the Philippines across Malaysian Borneo, Sulawesi, Indonesia to Timor Leste, and Papua New Guinea. It is a paradise with over 600 variety of reef building corals and 3,000 species of fish. Plus numerous endangered turtles, such as the Hawksbill.
Many species of tuna spawn here.
It is a place to respect and tread lightly and responsibly when visiting. Because apart from the nature, over 120 million humans in the region depend on it for their lives.
