  • A great place to dive-but the place will be packed with turgrupper from Cebu and Mactan in daytime. Rent a boat with crew and head out for some of the slightly more distant islands-or get them to throw the anchor when you can view the corals. Gude beautiful diving, but beware of tidal power. There's not much to buy on the island-so take snacks with cargo from the country. Talima Lodge is a very nice place with Nice staff and who is so quiet on the island in the evening.
