From a deserted stretch of white sands only 20 years ago, the Grand Luley coastline has now become home to a large variety of mangrove and wildlife, making it sanctuary to ocean pigeons, kingfishers, and more recently, the rare species of tarsius. The mangrove garden is now the center of Luley’s ecosystem, a living proof that no matter how small what we do, we have a direct impact to our environment. Our Adopt a Coral program has gained popularity among resort visitors, a statement that such a simple action can contribute significantly to the betterment of marine ecology.
