PORT OF TAGANAK
Taganak Island is a small tropical island surrounded by the Sulu Sea in the province of Tawi-Tawi, Philippines. It is of volcanic origin and the largest island of the seven Philippine Turtle Islands with an area of about 116 hectares with the highest point at 148 meters and is about one mile in length.
The island is at the very edge of the international treaty limits separating the Philippines from Malaysia.
Together with three islands of neighbor country Malaysia and the surrounding coral waters, Turtle Islands are one of the world’s few remaining major nesting grounds for the Green Sea Turtles. In 1996, the islands were declared as Turtle Islands Heritage Protected area by the governments of the Philippines and Malaysia as the only way to guarantee the continued existence of the green sea turtles and their nesting sites.
