Juag Lagoon is a place to cozy up to different kinds of aquatic life. Its clear shallow waters is home to a number of fish species, giant clams, starfish, sea cucumbers, and sea turtles. It is a sanctuary built and maintained by Alex Geneblazo, who helps protect and raise awareness for marine conservation. Visitors are allowed to snorkel inside the lagoon provided that they are not wearing sunblock, which contains toxins harmful to the ecosystem. There is also a cap to the number of swimmers at any given time so as not to bother the animals. Juag Lagoon Fish Sanctuary is one of the stops featured in Matnogâ€™s island hopping itinerary. For booking arrangements, travelers are advised to drop by Matnogâ€™s local tourism office.
Subic Beach in Calintaan Island has the nickname of "La Playa Rosa" because of its pinkish powdery sand. What makes it blush are the nearby red corals that had been pulverized over time. There are actually two Subic beaches on the islandâ€”one is "liit" or small, and a longer stretch called "dako" or big. The latter is more popular because of its basic but tourist-friendly amenities that allow visitors to cook their own food and rent huts for those who want to stay overnight. Tent pitching is also allowed. Surrounding this island are the gnarly waters of San Bernardino strait that makes the trip to Subic beach a rather adventurous one. Aside from the waves being extra playful, the area is notorious for its whirlpools given certain conditions. In any case, guidelines are set for tours operating in the area to ensure the safety of travelers at all times. On the bright side, the reward for braving rough seas is a secluded and unspoiled beach paradise shared with only a few other explorers. Subic Beach is one of the stops and the farthest destination featured in Matnog's island hopping itinerary. For booking arrangements, traverlers are advised to drop by Matnog's local tourism office.
