Save Ligpo Cavern
LIGPO CAVERN, BALAYAN BAY, BATANGAS:
Ligpo Cavern is one of the most popular dive sites in Anilao. It is an important site for the diving community as it is one of only a few natural caverns in the Anilao strip. It has a 2 meter opening and the inside is about 3 x 4 meters. It tapers upwards to a 1×1 meter hole like a chimney upwards to a shallow area of about 5 meters allowing natural light and fish to enter the cavern. It is an attraction to divers because it can also allow penetration (with up to even 2-3 divers inside it) from the 10-12 meter deep opening up into the shallows opening up to a soft coral garden.
Permanent residents in and around the cavern include giant frogfishes, giant grouper, the unique electric clam considered a rare find across most of asia pacific diving, special nudibranches such as facelinas, lobsters and sharks.
