Recently, a German national Sabine von Stamm who is now based in Denmark for 30 years stayed at Coco Beach Island Resort for eight days and seven nights.  She is a midwife and a Yoga teacher in Denmark. It was her sister in-law who had stayed here before who recommended Coco Beach.

During her stay she was well taken cared of by her service family Angie and Mario in cottage 23A. She finds the staff very friendly and always at the best of their service which one can easily feels at home and further amazed at how everyone here can remember the names of every guest. Also she offered a Yoga lesson to all service Mamas which was held at the Heritage Hall and joined by other guest.

Sabine went on a snorkeling trip where she enjoyed colorful marine life, kayaking and swimming at the beach. But the most memorable one was the outing with the service mamas. The fun and joy they all shared was truly amazing experiences that she would gladly come back for another holiday.

Coco Beach’s Surf ‘n’ Turf 

For someone who loves seafood and beef, Chef Noel’s latest version of Surf and Turf dish will suit to your taste. This classic dish pairs two of the most wonderful foods. A light and buttery grilled lobster followed by a bite of tender and juicy steak is a symphony in the mouth. We recommend a nice potato dish, some steamed veggies, and a spirit of Sancerre or Cabernet for perfection.

 Try it now and obey your intense desire for seafood and beef steak.

The Pygmy Seahorse 

At Sabang Point, as I was guiding one of our divers at the Coco Divers, Coco Beach’s own dive center, we passed by a small ridge at around 14 meters. We saw a small fan coral on that ridge and went closer to look at it. While looking at the branches of the fan coral, we saw a Pygmy Seahorse trying to hide itself from us and from a few fish who wants to eat it.

Here’s a little background of the Pygmy Seahorse so non-divers (and even divers who have yet to see one) can appreciate this small wonder of nature. 

The Pygmy Seahorse (Hippocampus bargibanti) is one of the smallest seahorse in the world. It is very small that it's less than 2 centimeters in size (that’s only two-thirds of an inch!) and they live exclusively on Fan Corals. There are two common colors for this seahorse: Grey with red spots and Yellow with orange spots. They normally use their colors to camouflage themselves from their predators. This seahorse is also very shy and normally moves slowly from one branch to another to hide. Adult Pygmy seahorse are usually found in pairs or a cluster of pairs. 

As you can imagine, finding a pair or one of these tiny seahorse in a vast ocean or sea is an amazing find. Good thing Puerto Galera is one of the spots where you can find these Pygmy Seahore - if you know where to look. A lot of our divers at the Coco Divers who come from all over the world requests to see one during their dive.

Another interesting fact about the Seahorses...

Did you know that it's the male, and not the female, that becomes pregnant in seahorses. The female lays her eggs in the pouch of the male seahorses. The male fertilize and incubate the eggs until they give birth after around two weeks.

I’m glad I’m human and not a seahorse!
