MOALBOAL, CEBU, PHILIPPINES
Moalboal is a small peaceful town approximately a 2.5 hour drive away from the international airport in Mactan. The town does not experience mass-tourism, but regular guests come back year after year for relaxation and diving. The warm waters and rich marine life in Moalboal make it a popular destination for divers from all over the world.
Located at the heart of the Tañon Strait, the area has one of the richest marine biodiversity in the Philippines. Tañon Strait is hemmed in by two major islands - Cebu to the east and Negros to the west - this vertical stretch of 160 kilometers is the kingdom of biodiversity in the central Visayas, the largest marine protected area in the Philippines.

Blessed with fringing reefs, Moalboal provides the experience of snorkeling and diving practically anywhere in its waters including the very popular Pescador Island, the "sardine run" off Panagsama beach, and the Tongo/Tuble Marine Sanctuary where possible sightings of sea turtles are common treats.
