Sealife

For years, the sea in front of Cas Abao Beach has been home to Sting-, Eagle-, and on very special occasions Manta rays. Dolphins also like to make a special appearance, especially from November through February and even whales have been spotted in the crystal-clear waters! What is also very special is that Cas Abao Beach is the home to different kind of turtles species which come and lay their eggs every year.

For the snorkelers, there are the shallow waters and along the edges of the cliff and for the divers there are three very distinctive dives sites.

On the left, the shoreline drops like a ladder and every level have its own distinctive coral formation. In the middle is the big drop off, a cliff wall full of corals, sponges and colorful fishes that drops about a 100-feet to the bottom of the ocean floor where you find a big sand patch full of garden eels. And then on the far right, the bottom gradually angles downward while showcasing a mix of big coral formations like big bright orange elephant ears or gorgeous tall purple tubes.
