The Resorts:

Alona Vida Resort (7 nights)

Alona Beach is situated on the southern side of Panglao Island and is a beautiful stretch of white sand.  Alona Beach offers some fantastic diving, including the dive site Balicasag Island famous for it’s HUGE turtles (even bigger than those seen in Marsa Alam!), as well as mixing beach life with a few more lively evenings if you choose.  We will be staying at Alona Beach on a Bed and Breakfast basis, allowing us to explore the local food options and bars as well as the hotel’s bar and restaurant.

Ocean Vida Resort (3 nights)

Ocean Vida Beach and Dive Resort is brand new, built and run by the well-established Philippines dive operation, Sea Explorers. It is situated on the small tropical island of Malapascua, where we hope to be able to spot Thresher Sharks!  Despite it only taking around 30 minutes to walk around the island, we recommend you take a guide as you will get lost! The pathway weaves its way through all the small alleyways of the traditional villages, giving you ample chance to chat to some locals. This is a perfect destination to dive, relax and unwind.  We will be staying here on a bed and breakfast basis, giving us the flexibility to try some local options.
