A marine protected area established in 2004, the 37-hectare uninhabited island lies at the northeast portion of Calapan mainland fronting Kamasuhan Rock. Located well within the Coral Triangle, the center of the world’s marine biodiversity, the island teems with 64 percent living coral cover (48 percent hard corals, 14 percent soft corals, 1 percent nutrient indicator algae, 1 percent sponge and 1 percent others) based on a Vulnerability Assessment. Island hopping and snorkeling tours are currently offered, while scuba diving can be pre-arranged.
