Anilao is known to be one of the world's best scuba diving destinations. It boasts of clear blue waters, beautiful and rich marine life. The beach terrain is more on the rocky side where corals and shells are abundant that offers a different kind of beach adventure.
Scuba diving, snorkeling and island hopping are the main activities guests usually enjoy in Anilao. Guests who wish to go scuba diving (must be certified divers at least) will be referred to other neighboring resorts that operate dives.
Guests who wish to go on a snorkeling adventure, we encourage guests to bring their own protective beach wear i.e. bathing suits, rash guards, swim vests, booties, aquasocks or thick-rubber soled sandals to comfortably enjoy the beach/snorkeling.
Island hopping can be arranged upon booking or with our resort staff as bancas are on a per need basis. Tours go to 3 stops and last for 4-5 hours where best time to leave is at 7am and be back at the resort in time for lunch. You may choose to visit Sombrero Island (entrance fee is P200/head, hut rental P800).

ON GUESTS' SAFETY
Wear protective swimsuits (e.g. bathing suits, rash guards or wetsuits) and footwear (e.g. thick rubber sandals, aqua socks or dive booties). Our beachfront offers a rich marine sanctuary where corals and rocks are abundant.
When snorkeling or swimming in the beach, best practices are always wearing a lifevest and have a "buddy system" to ensure each other's safety. The resort may have limited lifevests on hand. Guests are encouraged to bring their own (especially for kids) for your safety.
Parents with children in tow should be responsible for their children's safety at all times IN and OUT of the water. Always be within an arm's length away only from your children when swimming.
Anilao is a protected marine sanctuary. When swimming and snorkeling, be careful not to add damage to the corals and let's respect the marine life. When in doubt, avoid touching “creatures" i.e. sea urchins, etc. as these may cause harsh allergic reactions or even poisoning when touched.
Only CERTIFIED SCUBA DIVERS are allowed to go scuba diving. Guest divers will be referred to neighboring resorts who operate dives and will have to book with them directly. Non-divers who wish to go on an intro scuba dive must be under the supervision of a certified dive instructor.
Please secure your belongings at all times. Always lock your room when going out to the beach. (You may request for a key at the reception.) The management will not be held liable for any losses, theft or damage to personal belongings.
Please be considerate and refrain from playing loud music and avoid any rowdy behaviour that may disturb others (even our neighbors) especially at night.
