The Tassler Scorpionfish 

One of the most common fish to see in the coral reefs of Puerto Galera is a Scorpaenopsis oxycephala, otherwise known as the Tassler Scorpionfish.

The tassled scorpionfish is a carnivorous fish,they also have venomous spines same as the stonefish and lionfish. This fish can grow up to thirty-six (36) centimeters in leangth and it can have different colors. The adult tassled scorpionfish are bearded with a few tassles below the mouth and that is where this fish got its name. They are normally seen on coral reefs ranging from one meter to thirty-five (35) meters underwater. Most often they look like rock that is why sometimes people accidentally thread on their venomous spines wich causes painful injury.
Now can you see where the tassled scorpionfish is???

Bread Cones 

 

Are you a sandwich lover? Even if you are not, here is Coco Beach's home made Bread Cone. A cone shaped bread or a tubular sandwich with different fillings you may choose from such as tuna, chicken, egg or anything you want inside.

It has soft texture with sesame on top and can easily hand held wherever you want to take it, or when you are hanging in the beach front while watching the waves or have it back as your snack when you leave. If you feel like having some, just inform the cook in advance and he will freshly bake it for you.
