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 too!
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, Pedro and Annalyn, who are as enthusiastic today as they have ever been about their wonderful underwater world.
Coron is home to 10 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 Cathedral Cave and Barracuda Lake. Coron is undoubtably 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 from the busy Coron 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
