Philippines Diving Destinations
The Philippines has some incredible diving. You can see almost everything on your “to see” list and much, much more. From whale sharks down to pygmy seahorses, the Philippines has it all.
The Philippines is becoming famous in diving circles as a superb destination, but it is still relatively untouristed, so now is a great time to come. Once divers have been to the Philippines for their first time, they tend to come back again and again.
If you are looking for one place to dive within the Philippines, Malapascua Island has some of the most diverse diving you can find. If you only have a limited amount of time and/or money to spend, Malapascua offers you a good cross-section of marine life in the Philippines and is a great choice for your diving dollars.
As well as the famous and unique thresher shark cleaning station, they regularly get other large pelagics like giant manta rays, hammerhead sharks, and devil rays.
They have a good variety of dive sites including soft coral reefs, walls, muck dives, wrecks and technical dive sites. All sites boast amazing macro life.
