    What’s life without the beauty of nature? What’s enjoyment without the spending time at a very relax atmosphere? Nature makes life more fulfilled and gives us something to think about. I really admire the beauty of this Beach, I can behold the beauty of nature just from the photos here and it’s a place one should visit and appreciate nature.

    Nalusuan Island sounds like a lovely place! I love snorkeling and the marine sanctuary would be great for me. I love to relax while letting the fish swim by and see the creatures on the sea floor. This sounds like an out of the way spot without too many tourists so it might be easier to really enjoy nature and feel relaxed.

    Marine sanctuaries are so important now as pollution, overfishing, coral bleaching and ocean acidification become more and more dangerous to marine life. I am glad to hear Nalusuan Island has this marine sanctuary to help protect the wild fish in the area.
