ZEPHYRINIDAE - PURPLE-TIPPED JANOLUS
Janolus sp. Anilao, Batangas
Anilao Diving and Resorts, this website was created with three
major components the padi dive courses, fun dives or dive package
arrangements and resort accommodations. This a vision of Ronnie
Corpuz a Padi IDC staff instructor to share his experience and invite
more divers and other tourist around the globe to explore this
magnificent diving destination in the Philippines. Anilao is
currently the number one in macro photography in the whole Philippine
archipelago and number two in the whole world - this is base on the
responses of the different divers around the globe who came and visit
here whole year round.
The reason behind this is because Anilao is included in
Philippines's MPA Marine Protected Area. The local government
of Mabini and Tingloy and NGO's put together an effort to
create a CRM Board or Coastal Resource Marine Board to chase out all
activities of illegal fishing specially on dive sites and by
maintaining good balance and protecting the different coral
species from damage of anchoring banca boats and to educate
local community in various ways of preserving this wonderful place.
Anilao is located south of Luzon Island and is approximately 140 km.
away from Manila or 2.5 to 3 hours by car during normal traffic
condition or depending on how you drive. Currently Anilao has more
than 48 dive sites with about 5 to 10 minutes apart or 30 minutes the
farthest point from any resorts. It has a wide variety of diving
choices, from novices to instructors where you can see different
species of corals, big pelagic fish or rare to find critters where on
every dive you will surely be satisfied.
