The diving... Okay, so we tend to get very enthusiastic about our dive destinations, but hands down, THIS one is topping on our list! The diving around Dauin is a brilliant mixture of cool thriving reefs (like prober, FULL ON coral reefs, just like you have seen them on TV) and funky macro life. A perfect match! Most of the diving is done from the beach or close to the coast, where the current hardly exists.
On a more general note... The diving is suitable for all levels of divers, but especially highly recommendable for the geeky diver seeking rare macro sightings! The beginner, seeking easy diving and pretty reefs will love the turtles and the pretty patches of reef, but be aware! The area is very much about diving on the black volcanic sand, looking for the strange life that can be found in this kind of habitat. It is like a treasure hunt, where weird tiny marine life is the pretty gems. If you haven't tried muck diving, THIS is the place to start! And, if you also want to experience the full on coral reef and some bigger marine life, you can always get on a boat and head out to the world famous Apo Island and Sumilon island. (We have to say it again the corals out there are pretty damn fine!). If you want relaxed beach diving with rare and odd marine life, you should dive the coast of Dauin. If you want it all, dive both Dauin Coast and Apo Island and enjoy the wickedness of the Philippine waters.

Is very different from the rest! It is one of those places where people end up staying for weeks or even months… not kidding! It is beautiful, full of flowers and very cozy! There is a relaxed atmosphere and a homey feeling that you will love, no doubt! Cook your own food in the common kitchen, take a nap in the hammock station, put on a DVD and crash in a bean bag or grab a tank and go diving just 50 meters from the gate on the coolest housereef in the Philippines!.

There are several ways to get to Dauin, depending where your arrival is from. Easiest way is to take a local tricycle direct to the hostel/dive center. Usually the price from Dumaguete airport/pier is no more than 300 pesos. The hostel can also arrange a special transfer a private van for 1200 pesos. However, we do recommend the tricycle ride, which is both a lot of fun and really comfortable (if not too many people and luggage is loaded on the same bike). Tricycles is the local way to get around and this method is a brilliant way to see and experience the country.
