The Sohoton Cove on Bucas Grande Island located in Soccoro town. It is best known as a unique and mysterious cavern that can only be reached during a low tide through just one entrance. Sohoton Cove can reached by boat and during the low ride, coral gardens can be seen through the clear waters. The cavern is a large magnificent formation and almost at the entrance of the cave is a rock formation known as the Horse’s foot. Another spot to visit includes the Tojoman Lagoon where there is a stingless jellyfish sanctuary. As the jelly fish do not sting, visitors can even swim along in the crystal clear water with them. Hagukan cave is another attraction that can be visited only at low tide where tourists can swim into the cave as well. Another cave, Magkokoob Cavern is filled with stalactites and stalagmites at the entrance, is where a small diving point can be found.
