I have been diving numerous times in the Philippines and find a lot of the reefs incomparable with anything I have dived before (including the Great barrier in some places), often Immaculate coral and new twists on every dive. However I never see much publicity or trip reports in the UK diving communities for some reason, anyone know why?

Anyway, my most recent dive trip was to Moalboal on Cebu Island. And couldnt recommend it more, pescador island has a stunning sardine run with threshers feeding off them and there was about another 20 odd dive sites within 15 minutes of the resort I stayed at called Kasai Village (would really recommend it for service, location food and dive shop quality) even their house reef was top quality.

So why no discussion in the UK about the Philippines or dive trips at my local clubs? And anyone else dived their and have any opinions?

Although very difficult to get to from pretty much anywhere in the Phillipines i would recommend to anyone diving Apo reef marine national park on a live aboard from Pandan Island off Occidental Mindoro, fantastic dive sites and the house reef yields schools of tuna, sharks, turtles, sea snakes etc from about 10m from the beach

Hi,

I have booked my flight to the Philippines. I have already booked a liveaboard to Tubbataha, and a weeks diving in Malapascua. Also I plan to spend a few days in El Nido and either a week in Moalboal or a week in Bohol - any suggestions which one I should choose? I am thinking Bohol as I have read reports Bohol offers nicer beaches. has a little more night life and the diving is better!!!! Although a few reports suggest the moalboal diving is very good!!! Before returning home I am going to spend a week in Puerto Galera and do diving too, although I have read that the beach is not great there, any opinions? Does this sound a good plan or should I may be look at another area? A little night life and nice beach with good diving is important to me! Regards
