RP ranked as one of the world’s best dive sites (Source: http://goodnewspilipinas.com/wp/?p=5142)
The Philippines was recently ranked and awarded by Japan’s leading diving magazines as one of the world’s top five diving areas.
The country also made it to the list of Top 10 Most Desirable Destination, Best Dive Resort (Bohol Tropics) and Favorite Dive Operator (Blue Coral, Cebu), according to a survey participated in by more than 50,000 Japanese dive enthusiasts.
The Tubbataha Reefs Natural Marine Park has always been the most famous and most desired dive site in the Philippines, overshadowing other world-class dive sites within the country’s rich waters. In recent years, though, many dive spots have begun to make a name for themselves and luring in more divers to sample their pristine delights, especially with the recognition of the Philippines as the center of world marine biodiversity. Coming up with a list of top sites in the country is difficult, as many more sites are being discovered. But here’s a list to get you started. I’ve divided the list into the five most popular spots and the five “secret” sites (well, not so secret now!). See you in the water!
