Dive Sumilon Island
Sumilon Island is an amazing place for diving. You can find beautiful corals, plenty of fish, white or black tip sharks as well as sometimes even rays or octopus. It is probably one of the best places to dive in this area.

As already mentioned, most of the tourists don’t stay on Sumilon Island but do day trips from places like Lilo–an (on Cebu), Dumaguete (Negros) or even Alona Beach (Panglao Island). Since whale sharks can be sighted at Tan-awan (off the shore of Oslob, Cebu) dive centers combine the whale shark trip with dives on Sumilon. 200 Pesos diving fee per day are collected on Sumilon Island. Cameras are charged extra.

Beach front
The beach front dive site is a really nice drift dive where sharks can often be seen. But even without sharks this dive site is just great. Just watch all the nice things pass by while you are drifting.

Light house
Great corals, lots of fish, sharks, cuttlefish and much more. Most of the time there is a pretty strong current at this dive site. Make sure you change direction - back to the shore - in time. Otherwise the current will take you far out in the ocean.

Marine sanctuary
This is a very nice wall dive with amazing corals, especially at the end of the dive where emerging corals are just everywhere. At around 5 meters (16,4 feet) corals form a huge, colorful carpet. But also before you arrive at this point this dive site has a lot to offer. You can find plenty of nudibranches as well as lionfish close to the wall. Blue spotted sting rays have been sighted there as well and of course you get to see plenty of fish. If you are in the area you really should not miss out on a dive or two on Sumilon Island. It will be an unforgettable experience.
