Philippines – Southern Leyte and Coron March 2019

Southern Leyte & Coron Beautiful reef & WW2 Wrecks

Southern Leyte is one of the hidden gems of the Philippines; on the little visited eastern side of the Visayas, tourism is low key, meaning the chances are you will have the whole reef to yourself, and the reefs, well, they are simply stunning! Macro life is fantastic, and you will see many special creatures. If you get lucky, a whaleshark may show their face!

 

Sogod Bay Scuba Resort, there are not so many resorts that have a house reef like SBSR, with pigmy seahorses, turtles and frogfish being common place. The resort is small, clean and tidy and well run by Phil and Pedro, who are as enthusiastic today as they have ever been about their wonderful underwater world.

 

 

 

Coron is home to 11 Japanese wrecks, sunk by the Americans in 1944. All the wrecks can be dived recreationally with the Irako being the deepest at 42m. Apart from wreck diving, Coron offers stunning scenery and a few interesting non-wreck dives like Gunters Cave and

Barracuda Lake. Coron is one of the most beautiful places in the Philippines.

Sangat Island resort is perfectly located close to the main cluster of wrecks, less than a 10 minute boat ride away. Away from the busy little town guests will certainly feel cast away in

nature on this peaceful island with its own picturesque white sand beach. The open-air bar offers superb views of the starry night sky whilst enjoying an ice cold San Miguel!

      Alcoholic and soft drinks (water is freely available), any additional dives you choose to do, equipment hire other than cylinder & weights and marine sanctuary fees. basically there is very little you need to spend on while you are there!
