Aiyanar Beach & Dive Resort - Anilao, Philippines

posted by Liquid Diving Adventures    |   October 8, 2014 09:00

Anilao is 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 beginning of a majority of the diving population in 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. In addition, it's accessibility to Manila makes it a favourite 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 1970's, and are determined to keep it pristine.  

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.

Aiyanar Beach and Dive Resort is our latest addition to the list of fin-tastic resorts in the Philippines. Our dive buddies at the resort are offering us a great discount package for the DEMA Dive Show taking place in Las Vegas November 19-22, 2014. We have a variety of packages including stays from 5 to 14 nights, with or without meals, and either 2 dives or 3 dives per day. Our typical 7 night package, full board meals and 12 dives is discounted to $1400 per person double diver occupancy.

If you love the macro or the majestic, Anilao has a dive site to fill your camera with photos. Book a trip to the Philippines…!
