Nalusuan Island Resort and Marine Sanctuary offers a look at a protected reef teeming with marine life. Originally bearing the dubious name of "kalusuan" (literally translated as "a place of penises") due to its abundant sea cucumber population, the island was turned into a resort and was instrumental in protecting the reef from the dynamite fishing techiniques employed by the local fishermen. Only reachable by boat, the island offers day tours or longer stays in its stilted cabins. Don your snorkel and inspect the abundant aquatic creatures living in the protected coral gardens, take scuba diving lessons, or swim in the wide sandbar. Make Nalusuan Island Resort and Marine Sanctuary a centerpiece of your Cordova vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Cordova trip itinerary maker app.

  • Very nice place for snorkling and watching fishes. Price was around 100PHP I think, so no topic. They drop some rice and then you are in a cloud of fishes.
