Anilao - Philippines | Kona Honu Dive Travel
February 5th - 12th, 2022
Those who like bigger animals will find that Anilao has no shortage of sharks, rays, and other good-sized schooling fish like trivially barracuda. It is also not unlikely to spot the occasional whaleshark or other bigger animals while diving. These can be found at the more advanced sights with good currents and some deeper reefs (eg.mainit point, bahura kanto, mapating larry’s garden and twin rocks).
In turn, those who prefer nice easy diving and colourful soft and hard corals will be fully-satisfied in Anilao. Located right in the middle of the coral triangle, Anilao boasts of some of the widest diversity of coral life that can be found on a dive. Good-sized hard corals such as brain, table and staghorn corals are on almost every dive, mixed with an array of soft corals, large sponges and gorgonian fans and you can have the most picturesque dive.
Lastly, for those with a keen eye and a love for critter photography, Anilao delivers critter diving that rivals the best critter diving in the world. Sites such as the more recently discovered “Secret Bay”, and the Anilao classic “Basura” offer critter diving that equals the shores of Dauin, and even Lembeh in Indonesia. Critters such as the frogfish(the giant, clown and the hairy), wonderpus, flambouyant cuttlefish, and, lately, even the pinnacle of critter diving, the rhinopias, have been spotted on a regular basis off the shores of anilao and have been photographed on a regular basis.
With a rich marine biodiversity within an environment maintained and protected by the local communities, Anilao proves to be one of the foremost marine conservation and diving destinations of the Philippines.
