Tubbataha Reef, Palawan

Spread the love

I have been wanting a Tubbataha Reef postcard for my collection and a couple to swap with friends and fellow enthusiasts. Unfortunately, I was not able to stumble upon a bunch of these postcards in any of the bookstores I frequent. Luckily, one of my fellow Postcrossing Philippines members had a card to spare and agreed to swap with me.

According to Wikipedia, the Tubbataha Reef is an atoll coral reef and a National Marine Park located in Sulu Sea. The reefs are considered part of the island municipality of Cagayancillo, Palawan. It is a marine sanctuary protected as Tubbataha Reef National Marine Park. It was declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in December 1993 and was also nominated for the New 7 Wonders of Nature. The reef got its name from two Samal words: tubba and taha, which means “a long reef exposed at low tide,” when put together.

Thank you so much Roselyn for sending me this lovely card and for the copy of the signatures of those who joined our meet-up last month, which I was not able to join! It was such a clever idea and I love it! It made me want to play one of those exceptional Rico Instruments at musician’s friend even if I do not know how to play! ^_^

    I’m so drawn to the sea – photos of the sea or anything of sea related. I feel like it’s calming and calling me for some reason. I know it’s weird. It just feels that way, lol! So sweet of her to send you the card – just how you wished and wanted!

    Awe! That is one lovely postcard of the reef in Palawan. Mommy, I still haven’t been able to mail your postcards. I have a few and I am thinking I will have to mail them later because we will be on vacation to Yellowstone and possibly Utah so I want to buy some more to send to you. 🙂 And hopefully one from Wyoming.

    Aside from the Tubbataha reef, there are so many wonderful sites to see in Palawan. My husband and I went island hopping there several years ago and we’ve been yearning to go back with kids.
