Apart from its unique location and its lovely people, visiting divers usually get magnetized by the staggering life form decking out the inclined wall right by the shore of Panagsama beach. The dive starts at the beach, heading straight down to a recepting beauty of stunning hard and soft corals, anemones and sponges hosting thousands of inhabiting tropical fishes.

As a little town by the west coast of Cebu Island, Moalboal can be easily reached by either renting a bike or taking a bus or jeepney from the center of Cebu.
