Located at the headland south of Escarceo Point, Boulders is one of the most distant sites from Sabang (Puerto Galera), taking roughly 30mins by banca. Surface conditions tend to be choppy, with some degree of current usually present. A number of massive boulders, one the size of a house, tumble down to around 25m creating a series of swim-throughs, tunnels, and overhangs. As you descend the slope, the site is strewn with boulders of various sizes and shapes.

This is also a great site for nudibranchs. During my dive, my guide excitedly gestured to a nembrotha nudibranch lying on a rock. It was only after scrutinising the developed photo that I realised the nudibranch was in the process of laying a delicate spiral of yellow eggs! Prawns and small lobsters can often be found in the profuse cracks and crevices, while dragonets, stonefish, scorpionfish and lionfish are commonly observed.

Basket sponges, gorgonians including sea whips housing tiny whip gobies and soft corals decorate the rocky surfaces with a riot of colour. Hanging on a huge boulder at a depth of 25m, a sea fan is home to a lone pygmy seahorse.
