As implied by the name Tulapus sanctuary is a marine protected area. As such it offers easy access and straight-forward diving on a flat sandy slope. It’s located off the north tip of Siquijor. In 1989 a large number of concrete x-shapes were put in place to create an artificial reef and to allow corals to settle. Diving over these now long overgrown x-shapes can be somewhat akin to diving over a graveyard with all the crosses everywhere. Regardless it’s a beautiful dive, and the artificial reef provide interesting photo opportunities, plus a good chance to spot a lot of rare macro critters. In the sand are shells and big brown daisy corals. The reef sometimes attracts larger groups of bigger fish, so you may well spot barracudas and big groupers.
