Generak Remarks Site
?Caubian Island? are in fact two Islands at the northeastern Island of a large coral reef that goes west and south parallell to Olango Island. One of the Islands is overpopulated - a sand flat full of nipahuts - and the other one is not inhabited but has nice rocks and soil. The diving is usually not far from the Islands, but far out in the sea along the northern drop-off.
Facilities of Divers
The dive boats from Mactan will take you there on demand and with a premium.
