Batangas Islands Philippines
Diving

Ligpo Island.
Corals of different types and huge gorgonians abound in the area. It is on the west side of the island.

Cathedral.
Approximately 75 feet south of the Dive, 7000 Resort area lies a giant rock formation that looks like an underwater amphitheater. Originally virtually barren, Cathedral has been seeded with coral from other sites. Throngs of eager fish gather around visiting divers, waiting to be fed.

Caban Cove.
This dive site is fairly sheltered. There are no exotic coral formations, plenty of small tropical fish, and an interesting small drop-off that goes down in graduated “steps.” This is good choice for shallow dives.

Layag-Layag Point.
There are coral heads teeming with life and the water is usually crystal clear. There are also enough things to see to keep snorkelers interested.

Sombrero Island.
The island’s external appearance resembles the shape of a hat. However, underwater, its profile makes its name even more appropriate. In certain areas, water is fairly shallow on the rim, down to about 50 feet.

Sepok.
The rim of the drop-off west-southwest to Sepok Point is a very good dive site, with many varieties of marine life.

Batalan.
This area breaks the surface and then drops down to about 80 feet. This is a marvelous area for both wide angle and macro-photography because of the abundant and varied coral formations and fish life.

Merriel’s Rock.
There are types of corals numerous enough to fascinate even a marine biologist.

Papaya Point.
There is a drop-off topped by a wide variety of corals and inhabited by lots of small reef fish.

Verde Island.
The most popular dive sites here are the Drop-off (0-300 feet) and the Spanish galleon, which ran aground in 1620.

Maricaban / Tingloy.
The island contains a cave at 125 feet, accessed by the tunnel, which makes for a challenging adventure. There are excellent coral formations, abundant pelagic fish, and other outstanding photographic opportunities.
 

Breads and Pastries Philippines Cuisine

In a typical Filipino bakery, pandesal, monay and ensaymada are often sold. Pandesal comes from the Spanish pan de sal (literally, bread of salt), and is a ubiquitous breakfast fare, normally eaten with (and sometimes even dipped in) coffee.
