The Philippines is not only rich in exquisite animals and flowers, but the country is also abundant in dainty marine life. For instance, the Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park is a marine sanctuary that has been added to the World Heritage list.

Going to Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park will take approximately 10 hours from Puerto Prinsesa, Palawan, Philippines. Islanders of Cagayancillo (a municipality in Palawan, Philippines) used the term "gusong" to describe the Tubbataha Reefs.

Since Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park is located at some distance away from possible exploitation, its pristine coral reefs have been protected. It is only accessible through live-aboard boats found in Puerto Prinsesa.

Best Time
You can visit Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park in the months of March to June because water currents during these months are controllable. And if you are planning to have a night diving adventure in this place, you may do so, as long as there is no current.

In order to preserve its pristine coral reefs, Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park has a conservation fee of PHP 3,000 (approximately $63).
