Anilao is the staple dive destination of Manila-based divers who are lucky to have an excellent diving area close to the city. Anilao is a marine reserve, and the fruits of protection are evident in the quantity and diversity of marine life. Reef creatures such as sea turtles, triggerfish and moray eels are common sights, as are pelagic fish such as giant trevally and barracuda. Anilao's coral gardens are underwater rainbows, home to enough colorful tropical marine creatures to fill any diver's wish list.
Enjoy two days of diving with two boat dives per day and 1 shore dive per day at Twin Rocks, one of the country's most biodiverse dive sites.
