Anilao in Batangas province is one of the Philippines best diving spots. Located around 140 km south of Manila, Anilao’s proximity makes it a popular destination for weekend diving trips.
Even excursions are ideal in this southern town where resorts are situated within short boat rides to excellent dive sites. Diving is mainly in coral slopes and shallow gardens among sandy patches.
There are at least 24 excellent dive sites between the coast of Anilao and Maricaban Island, making Anilao one of the most attractive spots among professional divers. The most popular site is the Cathedral (average of 60 ft.), a roofless cavern flanked by two large sea mounts. Ideal diving season is from November until May.
Mabuhay ang Anilao!
