bluehole The Blue Hole, Tablas Island
A unique naturescape in San Agustin is the only "hole dive site" in the Philippines, the almost legendary Blue Hole. It takes almost an hour by boat to reach the bay of Barangay Cawayan from the town proper. As a diver descends into the hole, he or she will be welcomed by many species of marine life and wonderful coral formations especially the big fan corals. It is possible for beginners to explore this dive site, but beyond the 30 meters depth would require specialized or advanced diving license.
