Tubbataha Reef Sea of the Philippines is an atoll coral reef located in the Sulu Sea of the Philippenes. It is a marine sanctuary protected as Tubbataha Reef National Marine Park. Since divers discovered Tubbataha in the late 1970s, it has become recognised as one of the most remarkable coral reefs on our planet.

Tubbataha Reef, declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in December 1993, is home to hundreds of species of marine life and serves as a rest area for birds and turtles, among other animals.
