>> Click here to see diving packages for Moalboal

Overview

Moalboal is a small town on the west coast of Cebu island and is about 90km and two and a half hours drive from Cebu City. The reason that most divers come to the area is to dive at Pescador and a number of other excellent dive sites. Most of the resorts and dive centres are located along a strip of coastline called Panagsama Beach which is actually about a 3km from Moalboal. Panagsama was originally a small fishing village and has now developed into a tourism destination.

Sunset at Moalboal

The actual beach is quite limited in size and few parts of it are sandy, the majority of dive shops and resorts are situated just above the beach and have a walkway down to the dive boats. Evenings are livelier than in some other resort areas with a number of bars and restaurants staying open until the small hours. There is also a wide choice of food available with many different global cuisines represented by various establishments.

For those wishing to lie on the beach and do some earnest sunbathing, White Beach is only 10 minutes away by trike from Panagsama. There are also numerous activities available apart from diving, for example you can try canyoning, rafting, trekking and mountain biking.

The mixture of visiting divers, expatriates and of course the local community make Moalboal a very friendly place to spend time.

Moalboal is easily reached by road from Cebu and there is then a short journey by trike to Panagsama Beach.

All of our accommodation packages include complete round trip transfers from Cebu to Moalboal.

The Resort

Moalboal

Love’s Lodge is built directly over Panagsama’s rocky beach and is a friendly tropical resort. All superior rooms have air conditioning and hot water showers. The rooms are large and very comfortable.

The Restaurant

The resort restaurant has wonderful views out across the sea towards Negros. Serving mainly Filipino style foods with the emphasis upon seafood the restaurant is very popular.

The Dive Centre

Moalboal Divecenter

The Sea Explorers PADI 5 Star Gold Palm Dive Centre is set within the grounds of Love’s Lodge. It is located on the south end of the beach and has a multi media classroom, full equipment rental, nitrox availability and banca boats for transport to the dive sites.

The Diving

The best known dive site in the area is the marine sanctuary, Pescador Island. Just 15 minutes from the dive centre this is a site with big walls playing host to a huge variety of marine life including frogfish and schools of snappers and jacks. The sometimes strong currents and the depth of 35m mean that at times you may also see schools of barracudas as well as sightings of sharks.

Divers at Pescador Island

Although not as well known as Pescador, the diving at Sunken Island is considered by many to be even better still. The best time to visit is early in the morning and at depths of around 35-40m you may well get to see shark and tuna. At shallower levels on the dive schools of jacks and a wide range of reef inhabitants can be found.

Most of the diving in this area consists of shallow reef tops with fairly steep slopes and walls running down into the depths. There is a wealth of marine life around and you are likely to see turtles on many of the sites just a short distance from the dive centre. The deep waters mean that sometimes the unexpected visitor arrives and in recent times whale sharks, hammerheads and even pilot whales have been spotted.

The house reef in front of Sea Explorers is about 20m deep and has a good variety of corals and sponges ideal for beginners, night dives and macro photography.
