The Philippines 2024

If you want a very special trip to an incredibly special part of the world then look no further. We will be going to the beautiful Island of Bohol in the Philippines in February 2025. The Magic Oceans Dive Resort is simply beautiful; located on the east coast, in the town of Anda, far away from the busy tourist areas.
The resort boasts:

  • A large and fully equipped dive centre
  • A great restaurant with both local dishes and western style food
  • Hidden relaxation areas at the seaside
  • A beautiful fully stocked cocktail bar
  • A large swimming pool surrounded by a sunbathing/relaxation area
  • The Mahika wellbeing spa offering massages, pedicures & even yoga!

The trip is suitable for divers and non divers alike, this is reflected in the fantastic price.

The divers on the trip will enjoy two boat dives per day, with options to do more including night dives. The marine life varies from XXS to XXL, Pygmy seahorses, Nudibranchs, schools of fish, a passing whale shark and even an occasional manta. The Bargibanti Pygmy Seahorse is the star of the waters in Anda, Bohol and can be found at several of the 28 dive sites.

After diving or for the non divers there is a mass of things to enjoy on Bohol; from zip lining, quad bike hire, visits to beautiful waterfalls, the chocolate hill & Lamanok Island, dubbed Bohol’s “cradle of civilisation.” This mystical island is rich in beauty and heritage. Immerse yourself in its history and admire the beautiful and interesting surroundings. Discover the prehistoric hematite paintings in the caves and enjoy some snorkelling and swimming before a barbecue lunch, we have never had so much extra to do on any trip before.
