Philippines » Diving in Palawan
4 Days / 3 Nights

Palawan's almost 2,000 kilometres (1,200 mi) of irregular coastline are dotted with roughly 1,780 islands and islets, rocky coves, and sugar-white sandy beaches. It also harbors a vast stretch of virgin forests that carpet its chain of mountain ranges. The mountain heights average 3,500 feet (1,100 m) in altitude, with the highest peak rising to 6,843 feet (2,086 m) at Mount Mantalingahan. The vast mountain areas are the source of valuable timber. The terrain is a mix of coastal plain, craggy foothills, valley deltas, and heavy forest interspersed with riverine arteries that serve as irrigation.

Being one of the most important sites of biological diversity in the country, the El Nido-Taytay Managed Protected Area in Northern Palawan has one of the country’s richest reserves of marine life. Its clear waters are home to hundreds of species of marine life, from the smallest nudibranchs to the gentle whale sharks. It is a diver’s paradise.

There are 20 dive sites near Miniloc Island Resort and Lagen Island Resort in Bacuit Bay, El Nido, and ten dive sites near Apulit Island Resort in Taytay Bay, Taytay. The dive sites range from gradual slopes to drop-offs, wall dives to reef flats. Visibility is generally good with an average of 10 to 30 meters in the summer months of March until May.

Elnido is the paradise for divers
