Atlantis Dumaguete, Atlantis Puerto Galera… or both!
Atlantis Dumaguete Resort is a dedicated dive resort situated in Dauin, around 30 minutes’ drive from Dumaguete City on the southern tip of the island of Negros. This area is known as the Frogfish capital of the Philippines and a haven for critter diving.
Atlantis Dumaguete Resort incorporates 44 rooms built around a lush tropical garden, and features a pool, spa and waterfront restaurant, in addition to a spacious, well-equipped camera room. This beachfront dive resort is perfectly located for divers wishing to discover the superb diving of the Dauin and Dumaguete area, which includes a number of Marine Protected Areas. With its black volcanic sand, Dauin on the island of Negros is a unique destination for critter diving. Guests can also take advantage of day trips to nearby Apo Island, Siquijor, and snorkeling with the Whale Sharks in Oslob.
Atlantis Puerto Galera Resort is the perfect base to discover the tremendous diving of Puerto Galera. Home to Verde Island, centre of the world’s marine biodiversity, Puerto Galera, on the island of Mindoro, has evolved into one of the top dive destinations in Asia, if not, the world. From corals to critters, divers are truly spoilt for choice here.
Built into the hillside on Sabang Beach, minutes away from over 40 dive spots, Atlantis Puerto Galera’s 40 rooms are attractively nestled amongst lovely grounds stocked with plants and flowers. Atlantis Puerto Galera is renowned for its excellent amenities and service including a dedicated camera room and well-equipped dive centre.
The waters surrounding Puerto Galera have been a designated UNESCO ‘Man and Biosphere Reserve’ since 1973 and are home to some of the most biodiverse diving in the Coral Triangle. The area offers huge versatility that appeals to divers of all levels. Here, you can explore shallow coral gardens, exciting drift dives on walls and penetrable wrecks, whilst searching for everything from tiny critters in the bays, to pelagics in the stronger currents in the Passage.
Divers staying in Puerto Galera can also add a day trip to Anilao to their holiday. The so-called birthplace of scuba diving in the Philippines, Anilao is one of the best places in the world for nudibranch lovers and a top spot for blackwater diving.
For the ultimate Philippines adventure, why not consider a twin centre holiday taking in both resorts? Our dive travel experts will organise all aspects of your trip and tailor-make an itinerary including transfers and everything you need for a fantastic holiday!
