Tubbataha Reef

Protected by the Philippines Department of National Defense the Tubbataha Marine National Park is a World Heritage Site declared by UNESCO as far back as December 1993. It is located in Sulu Sea and is administered by Cagayancillo, a town in the province of Palawan, west of the Philippines. 
From Puerto Princesa City, Palawan's Capital, going to the reef is about 12 hours by boat. However, trip to the park lies on the weather condition. When the sea is in its calmness with clear blue skies which start from March to June, divers are allowed to visit. There are no permanent residents or inhabitants in the islet but it is seasonally visited by fishermen. It is considered as one of the best dive sites in the Philippines with over 1000 species of marine life. It rivals the Great Barrier Reef of Australia in terms of the diversity of the ecosystem and the number of marine lives in the sanctuary.
