amoingon beach

This may not be as famous as the other beaches in Marinduque but Amoingon beach holds something that’s not immediately seen as its attractions are hidden.

Amoingon beach is considered the snorkeling capital of Marinduque where there are coral gardens which are home to clown fish, other tropical fish, and mollusks. There’s a great number of sea urchins as well when the tide is low which the locals gladly pick and have them for mealtime.

Don’t expect fine sand in this beach but pebbles. After all, the beauty lies underwater so keep searching. 🙂
