Balicasag  (14 Photos)

Balicasag was the first marine sanctuary I ever visited in the Philippines and also where I first learned about underwater photography. Balicasag Island is reached by a short boat ride from Alona Beach on Panglao Island in Bohol. Most people stay in Alona and make day trips to dive Balicasag, but there are also places to stay on Balicasag itself.

Scuba divers love Balicasag for its amazing wall dive, where you can often see green sea turtles, hawksbill sea turtles, a large school of jacks, and a famous school of (smaller) barracuda.
