When it comes to the Philippines,
deciding exactly where to go may be a little daunting, but this is
where we come in. And luckily, most of the country's top dive sites
are within easy reach of some incredible hotels and resorts. Some
of our favourite places for luxury diving in the Philippines are
Anda, Coron and Dauin.
Anda, a small town on Bohol's east coast, is our top choice for
anyone looking for a diverse range of dive sites. It's home to
everything from muck sites, steep drop-offs and shallow coral
gardens, with long stretches of powdery white sand beaches,
fringing palm trees and turquoise blue waters.
Amun Ini, a small luxury resort tucked away from the crowds, is
a great base for exploring Anda. It's close to several dive spots,
with an artificial reef just a stone's throw from their private
If you're looking for wrecks, there's nowhere better for luxury
diving in the Philippines than Coron. The waters around Coron are
home to at least 12 wrecks, but the best ones are known as the 'Big
6'. These are Okikawa Maru (an oiler),
Akitsushima (a seaplane), Kogyo Maru (a cargo
vessel), Irako (a supply ship), Olympia Maru (a
freighter) and an unnamed Japanese freighter. As you can imagine,
Coron is a haven for wreck divers, and the kinds of creatures you
may encounter range from barracuda to nudibranchs to groupers.
Dauin, on the south coast of Negros Island, is known throughout
the Philippines as the best area for muck diving in the country.
Although muck diving doesn't exactly scream luxury, divers flock to
Dauin to see weird creatures such as cuttlefish and frogfish, as
well as nudibranchs and seahorses. Above the water, Dauin has the
signature white sand and palm trees of the tropics and top resorts
Atmosphere Resort & Spa.
