If you prefer to dive rather than surf, then Fagg Reef is for you. It’s the most famous dive site in the area and marks the divide between the Lingayen Gulf and the South China Sea. The site is also known as The Tanks, after the three World War II tanks that were dropped off here, resulting in a wide and diverse marine life, perfect for scuba diving.  – Source:   http://www.thunderbird-asia.com
