Blue-ringed octopus at Puerto Galera

The tiny Philippines nation is made up of 7107 tropical islands – at last count – and is the second largest archipelago in the world. Many of these islands are ringed by fantastic, healthy coral reefs with high levels of bio-diversity, which means diving opportunities are highly varied.

There is is fantastic scuba diving right across the country with masses of marine parks, both small and large, a World Heritage site at Tubbatha and of course, Southeast Asia's second best wreck diving destination in Coron Bay.
