Moalboal, Central Visayas, Philippines

DiveCenter and Dive Locations Moalboal, Panagsama Beach, Pescador Island

Moalboal is a small town about 3km away from Panagsama Beach, one of the famous dive destination in the Philippines and about a 3 hours drive from Cebu Mactan International Airport. All Dive Centers, Dive Resorts in and around Panagsama Beach can arrange a transport for you and pick you up at the airport on arrival. You could also take a taxi, but I recommend to book a transport in advance, beacause many taxi drives will not know how to find your resort... and its also more safe to take a van than a normal taxi.
If you arrive late at the Cebu Mactan International Airport I suggest to stay one night in Cebu City, so you don't have to drive during night time. As I already have written on the page of
Malapascua Islands I suggest the Alpa City Suites Hotel for your overnight stay in Cebu City, it is a realy good hotel, has a very nice, friendly stuff and better rooms (nice suites) for a cheaper price than most of the international hotels in Cebu City. Since I stayed there my first time, I always choose the Alpa City Suites Hotel (and I have been there already many times).
The most famous dive spot near Moalboal is Pescador Island, a really very small island with a deep drop off, the chance to see a wahle shark, tons of sardines and many more things a diver want to see on every dive.

"The waters of Moalboal Marine Park are extremely deep (600 m in Tañon Straight), clear (up to 35-40 m visibility), refreshing in temperature (27-29 °C) and harbor some of the highest levels of biodiversity in the world. Although the exact number of fish species is unknown, it may be slightly higher than in, where 2,500 species, or nearly 70% of all fish species known to the Indo-western Pacific, are found. In the Phillippine and Moalboal waters one can find more than 2,500 species of fish."

If you stay around Moalboal and don't dive every day you can realx on the beach or also visit the market in the town of Moalboal or make a nice (half-)day trip to Kawasan Falls. Kawasan Falls is about 20km in the south of Moalboal, after a nice walk along the river you reach the first of three levels of the waterfall. On every level, you can swim in the clear water (don't forget to bring your swimming shorts and a towel - something to eat and drink you can buy there in one of the small stores). If you are not tot tired of walking, you can also go up the hill, there is a very nice view down to the ocean. Ask one of the boys there for the right way - for some pesos one of them will guide you to the hilltop.
