Cervera shoal is at 11 kilometers (6 nautical miles) baring to the 128° from the BE grand resort hotel of Panglao.
The snakes island's name is because the snakes lies directly at the south on a steep slope and on a 300 meters (1000 feet) wide sandbar.

Because Cervera shaol is surrounded by strong current at the surface (getting mellow as you dive deeper), the shoal is also a good drift dive site for the certified drift divers.
This diving site used to have dynamite fishing but nowadays, due to the divers going to Cervera shaol to enjoy a drift dive or to photograph the snakes, the reef is getting better.
