Aurora has an abundance of shallow coral reefs, where a snorkeler can enjoy the myriad forms of coral and undersea life. The beauties of the reef that stretch throughout the lengthy coastline are still waiting to be discovered.
In Baler alone, there at least five good snorkeling spots, although some may have been damaged due to illegal dynamite fishing.
Snorkeling points are abundant in the southern portion of Baler. These reef areas are in the vicinity of the Aniao Islets, Cemento Beach, Digisit Beach, Dimadimalangat Islet, and the Lukso-Lukso Islets.
One of the more attractive areas to snorkel is in Dicasalarin Bay, which is 45 minutes by boat south of Sabang Beach, Baler. The flanking reef shores to the right and left of the bay remain untouched by dynamite fishing. Various multi-colored corals and undersea life are scattered along the shore reef wall, which is concave, due to the pounding of the waves.
The MIA Surf & Sport Resort offers tours to these snorkeling sites, and also rents out snorkeling gear such as flippers, wetsuits and vests. It is nevertheless advisable to bring your own equipment.
Snorkeling is best during the period from March until June, when the waves are smallest.
