Philippines :: El Nido : Matinloc Island

This island is situated west of El Nido and has some interesting dives on the island itself and the surrounds.

Banayan Point
Situated on the southern tip of the island, this a great site to see pelagics. Currents can be strong, bringing with them tuna, jacks and mackerel. Don't be so busy viewing the fish that you miss the coral encrusted rocks.

Bikanayos Rock
Also known as Picanayas, on the western side of the island, the site has some large boulders that whitetip sharks frequent. Pelagics can often be seen here as well.

Inbogal Point
Just to the southwest of Bikanayos, this site has some impressive gorgonians and green corals on a slope to 35m. Jacks, tuna and mackerel are common and it is home to a unique species of angelfish (Pomacanthus annularis). Only here and at Tres Marias can this fish be found.
