Tulapos Marine Sanctuary

Tulapos Marine Sanctuary

My friend and I had rented snorkling equipment in our hotel and talked to the owner, who recommended Tulapis marine sanctuary for seeing sharks (black tip sharks) and barracudas when snorkling – so we took our first stop on our scooter tour on the coastal main road here.

From the road, there is only a sign in one direction, so keep an eye out if your finding it yourself.

The beach is not very big, but big enough for staying some time and my friend and i haf it all to our selves apart from a handling of locals.

There is a fee of 25P Per person for snorkling, and a guide can be hired for 150P.
Our original plan was to just snorkel on our own, but we ended up hiring a guide to find sharks and barracudas easier which turned out to be a good decision. The locals know the animals in the sea and are way more faster in spotting things. I don’t think I would have seen sharks without them. So snorkling here my friend and I saw two-three black tip sharks, a sea turtle an lots of barracudas in 10 m derp√• water. We Also saw giant clams.

I would definitely recommend a visit here if you are in to snorkling – and you will have it all to yourselves.
