Wrecks, wrecks and more wrecks. The Philippines reefs have claimed the ships of many a sailor over the last century and the coast is littered with them. The sailors’ losses are divers’ gains, however. Over 7000 islands make up the archipelago of The Philippines with about 300,000 square kilometers (nearly 187,000 miles) of land, and each island offers visitors a different flavor.Read More
We had a fantastic time at Magic Island. The resort was clean and well maintained. The layout of everything created easy access to our room, the pool,dining area, and the dive shop. The kitchen staff and waitresses were one of the highlights of my day. They were all so sweet and gracious. Every single meal was superb. They even stayed late on the night of our arrival to prepare our dinner. Just as well, the girls came in early the day we left to prepare breakfast sandwiches for us to have on our way to the airport. The diving was an all around great experience as well. The dive shop had plenty of equipment for me to rent and were helpful throughout the week with tanks, loading my equipment, and reminding me to put on my weight belt. I enjoyed our divemasters immensely, I appreciated their enthusiasm and humor. They showed me some incredible things underwater. I can't say enough great things about my experience at Magic Island. I would come again and recommend the resort to everyone.
