Tubbataha

Tubbataha (pronounced too-bah-ta-hah) National Marine Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site and is comprised of just 3 coral atolls that rise from the ocean floor 100 miles east of Palawan and Puerto Princesa. To say the diving here is something that has to be seen to be believed is an understatement. Surrounded by deep cerulean blue seas, the atolls of Tubbataha break the surface of the sea by only a few inches. And it’s what surrounds these atolls that will amaze you.
