Comments Go to Coron for the Wreck Diving.
Go to Sangat Island Resort for a great relaxing vacation and beautiful natural environment.
Dive shop well run by Jojo. Good rental gear.
Two dives a day, plus night dives possible. Poor visibility.
The resort can arrange transfers from Manila. Rooms are basic, no hot water, but comfortable, clean and well run. No AC. Electricity (220v) from 6pm to 6am only. Slow WIFI in the bar area. Good buffet food. Nescafe coffee.
Other activities possible - day trip to Coron island, jet ski touring, beautiful hot springs in the mangroves, sea kayaks.
