Comments Dive Spot Asia Beach Resort
3.5 hours transfer through rush hour traffic Cebu is no fun at all after a long and tiring flight from Europe via Singapore to Cebu. I guess there is always rush hour here, Lucky for us our chosen resort was far away from the hurly burly of town life and peaceful and quite. It sits in lovely setting in a cut of the steep rocky coast line, which looks like nature provided just for them. The main building is tastefully anchored right where the slope levels out, the restaurant and recreational area is in front to the right on second floor, overlooking a small beach, neighbor islands, the big outrigger dive boat and “Bangka Higala”. Early birds enjoy a stunning sunrise from the restaurant. On the left is a wooden bamboo shed as dive center, with two big tubs for rinsing your gear, enough space for guest gear inside, next to a room for rental stuff and compressor. A nice garden invites you to spend leisure time after your daily program. There is a house reef right in front of the resort, which is worth looking at for critter lovers as day dawn or night dive. Normally they offer 2 tank morning dives going out on the Higala. 2 times in our week they did a full day trip to some outer shoals, which were the best diving we had there. ...
