CEBU CITY, Philippines – The town of Alegria in southwestern Cebu is popular for having several spectacular diving spots that feature the best of marine life.

But lately, a new underwater attraction caught the eye of internationally renowned travel vlogger Finn Snow.

Snow, in his official Youtube channel, published last August 21, 2020, a video showing statues submerged under the seawaters of Alegria, a fourth-class municipality located 112 kilometers southwest of Cebu City.

Based on Snow’s video, the statues, one of which resembled Mary, Mother of Jesus, were found standing alongside coral reefs and seemed to have blended with their surroundings.

One place in Alegria you can find multiple statues around the reef. Just swim out of Alegria Dive Resort and you will be able to see them!” Snow stated in his description.

Alegria is one of the municipalities in western Cebu that faces Tañon Strait, a protected seascape covering over 5,000 square meters. Both environmentalists and diving enthusiasts have considered Tañon ‘nature’s jewel’ for boasting rich marine biodiversity.
