Sumilon is the first marine protected area in the Philippines and was made a fish sanctuary in 1974 under the guidance of Siliman University Marine Reserve.

The Sandbar occasionally changes in shape and location, depending on the season.


We had are our snorkeling activity which is included in our day tour package. It was by afternoon when we decided to get wet but it wasn't really a good day for finding Nemo. The waves were a bit strong and it felt like the sea wants to swallow you down, but we manage to swim around and found some fishes, only a few, the tides were pushing them away. I bet they look wonderful if the water is calm-better do it the moment you arrive or in the morning.
