Diving & Travel Sites

Dive Point Alcoy Resort has specialized in diving tours in specific places. It means that since they know the areas quite well, you will be guaranteed not only on safety but also worth-exploring dive sites. The first one is…

Sumilon Island
Been to this beautiful island in 2017. Yes, it is true. It is an amazing place. Sumilon Island is surrounded by pristine emerald waters. It has a famous sandbar and one of its main attractions.

Besides, Sumilon Bluewaters Resort is managing most of the island’s area to conserve nature while running their fantastic resort facilities and services at the same time.

Sumilon is in fact considered the first marine sanctuary in the country. Due to the fecund and untouched natural underwater biodiversity, many dive activity providers ferry their students and professional guests to this island. Sumilon’s dive sites are considered one of the best in the area.

The island is about 24 hectares in size and located close to the Southeastern point of Cebu Province. Due to its extensive coral settlements and spread out channels, you will encounter varied species of tropical fishes. Observe the out-of-this-world marine creatures among others that you have never seen before.

Such a sight is the paradise for divers and newbies. If lucky, you can observe black-tip sharks (reef sharks) and whale sharks. Of course, simply visit Tanawan to swim with the whale sharks if you want to encounter them face-to-face.

Siquijor Island
Siquijor (pronounced as “sikihor”) is thought at an island of magic by many. Stories of mystics and mysterious are being told not only among locals but also outsiders (non-islanders). Many believed, or still do, that Siquijor is an island of Shamans, wizards and ‘witches.’

Whether the stories are true or not, one thing that is believable is that the island is beautiful and its waters are great for divers. Its beaches, white sandy and long stretches of beaches are unbelievable. The coastline stretches over a hundred (100 km) kilometers.
 
So, if you are tempted just to stroll on the long beach, then maybe you can still avail that service from the resort.

Balicasag Island

  • The Royal Garden – is located in a shallow deep (around 18 meters). It is one of the favorites due to its underwater plateau that features vibrant and bio-diverse marine life – schools of fish, corals, sea turtles, plants and more animals with different sizes, shapes, colors, and behaviors.

Cabilao
Cabilao Island is another chill place located in the waters of Bohol with crystal clear water, white sandy beaches, and amazing dive sites in the area. It lies on the West of the main island of Bohol and facing Cebu Island (Province).
