Datelline: June 12 – Independence Day until June 14. And during my stay I learned so much about the great importance of Marine life conservation.
Welcome to the most abundant marine reserve in Philippine Islands – Sagay.
Sagay City is 84 kilometers away from Bacolod. Ride for more than an hour from Bacolod and you can reach Sagay.
Sagay Marine Reserve is a 33 hectares wide covering those islands of Negros Occidental and has the following areas of interests:
Carbin Reef, Panal Reef, Macahulom Reef, Suyac Island and Molocaboc Island.
We went to these amazing islands and saw the beauty within.
Carbin reef is an interesting place for swimming and snorkle diving. Dive and see the corals and fisheries. The limit of people who can stay here is only 100 person to preserve the whole area.
That’s a crystal clear white sandbar at Macahulom Reef.
Molocaboc Island has the best variety of seafoods. Aside from the many species of fish they also the wide variiety species of clams, crabs, sea urchins and all.
Suyac Island is a fully community-based mangrove eco-park that has 7 species of Mangroves around Negros Island. The boat ride takes around 30 minutes from the port.
Sagay City is a two-hour drive from Bacolod City. Public utility vehicles plying the northern Negros route pass by this progressive city. From Cebu, one can reach Sagay via Toledo in about four hours including a one-hour ride in fast ferries.
