Anilao Dive Overview 

Over the years, Anilao remains to be one of the most popular diving destinations in the Philippines. Strategically located in Mabini, Batangas, only 2-3 hours drive from Metro Manila, Anilao is known to be home to the beginnings of the majority of the diving population of the Philippines. Divers who take their open water course in Manila or in any location within Luzon most likely have their first taste of real open water in Anilao, for example. In addition, it's accessibility to Manila makes it a favorite among weekend warriors and excursionists.

Decades ago, Anilao was merely a secret haven for locals. Today, resorts line the coast of Mabini catering to a myriad of clientele. It is a town built upon the love of diving. As such, development in Anilao strictly abides by the rules of conservation and sustainability. Locals proudly hold that Anilao has been a protected marine area since the 70's, and are determined to maintain it as such.

Today, there is an international boom in the interest in the Philippine diving industry, highlighting Anilao and its many diving opportunities. It is a haven that caters to divers of all skill levels and interests.

For example, 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 whale shark 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 colorful 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, flamboyant 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.

Very nice resort and facilities. Loved the staff service kitchen porters and dive areas all excellent. Lots of stairs so not for immobile or sedentary. Great pool and pool area. Beautiful views and places to sit and just relax and watch sea, boats, sunset. Rooms spacious. Mine was rather stuffy but others in group had no complaints. My bad luck I guess.

We hired our DM. One on one as two in our group dropped out. Was great as we had different levels of expertise.
I fell in love with this unheralded jewel from day 1 diving the house reef. NEVER expected to see soommany new and incredible macro. Diving was so chill that in the next few days I dove 60 to 70 min dives. Am normally an air hog. I prepared by working on my buoyancy beforehand. Got rid of my split fins. I was so enjoying myself just hanging in the water watching and filming all sorts of "aliens". Like a safari except that I was able to poke my face and watch up close and personal without becoming a meal. I used blue water list and other web sites to compile my list. Figured if mentioned multiple times then must be good. Did not disappoint! Twin rocks, Bebot's, Koala, Secret bay at nite, Sombrero was awesome, Caban cove, Cathedral was so so, kirby's rock and Layag Layag excellent. Mateo was too diehard macro for me. Anilao pier at night too diehard macro for me. Have a microhd and filming these creatures or seeing them were quite challenging. Will bring magnifying glass next time. Mainit bubbles, Arthur's and Minilog were excellent. Got too chilled for planned night dive and no deco times on darned suunto. Otherwise the house reef was supposed to be good for mandarin fish at dusk!, I shall return. I'll be back and all those cliches!!! Anilao rocks.
