The Napantao Fish Sanctuary is located at Ilijan Point, in San Francisco, Southern Leyte. It can be reached by motorized banca in about two hours from Maasin upon prior arrangement with private boat operators.

The Napantao Fish Sanctuary is full of healthy corals, clear water, rich marine life; the highly diversed underwater terrain in the area promises to be a challenging and exciting dive that a resident school fully grown surgeon fishes welcomes the “intruder” to a celebration of marine bliss and tranquility; hideout full of huge sea fans and soft corals; the place is virtually intact.

Panaon Island is famous for its world-class dive spots and fantastic snorkeling. The dive spots on Panaon Island are some of the best in the world. The town of Liloan has some of the largest reef area in Southern Leyte. What an amazing area. The water is crystal clear. The blues are some of the deepest. This side of Panaon Island is enriched with magnificent coral formations. The Island is commonly visited by large, beautiful, dolphins. Here you will even see the largest of fish – the fantastic whale shark!

This was my typical day in Paruparong Bukid (Mountain Butterfly) Nature Conservation Center in Babatngon, Leyte – in the morning, I watched the sun rise from the balcony of a nipa tree house. Then I went down one of the pathways lined with herbs and surrounded by nipa and coconut palms to walk meditatively around the labyrinth while also taking in the mountains in the distance. I walked through the Zen garden of trees and shrubs then entered the butterfly sanctuary to watch butterflies wake up with the sun, lazily opening their wings at first then flying with more vigor.

The night at Paruparong Bukid was far from dull, too. The skies there are one of the clearest and starriest I have ever seen, occasionally streaked with shooting stars. The fireflies flitting from one leaf to another in the mango and mahogany trees would give the falling stars a run for their money, though.  Read More:  https://iamtravelinglight.com/2012/06/05/paruparong-bukid-a-haven-for-wellness-and-nature-lovers/
