Famished? Paddle (or walk) to Gawad Kalinga restaurant somewhere in the stretch of Caalan beach that is nearer to the town. The atmosphere was tropically idyllic as you sip fresh buko juice and snack on calamari

Cheap accommodation for global visitors

Other examples are a couple of dive shop signages wanting to emphasize diving in the water just in case you have different sort of diving in mind. Finally, a life vest to make you safe.
