One of the most visited diving sites in Boracay is the Coral garden dive site also known as the house reef dive site.
Coral garden got its name from the hard corals that are forming all over the reef, especially the cabbage corals and the numerous species of soft corals.

The average shallow depth made the Coral garden dive site an ideal place for beginners in scuba diving and a perfect dive site for underwater photographers.
The Coral garden reef is also accessible, in its shallow part, to the snorkelers who just want to snorkel above the amazing coral garden.
The waters in this area are calm and clear. Coral garden is also a popular fish-feeding area for the people who want to go try scuba-diving.
The Coral garden diving site has almost no currents which makes it perfect for training beginner scuba-divers or just fun dives with your friends and family.
