Philippines Escapes & Hideaways

on the beach, From £37
El Galleon Dive Resort

El Galleon is a well run, friendly boutique dive resort located on the Small La Laguna side of the headland that separates the quieter La Laguna beaches from the busy Sabang Beach, Puerto Galera.

The best rooms are the sea view rooms situated atcually on the rocky headland, with standard rooms clustered around the small swimming pool where dive training takes place.

The Dive Centre is a few metres along the beach from where a jetty extends out into the bay for easy and efficient boarding.  This jetty is soon to be recontructed, made longer and the dive centre will be relocated to the end of that. Apart from the diving, El Galleon can also offer kayaking, sunset cruises, beach hopping safaris, volleyball, snorkeling, trekking, golf, and more.


El Galleon is owned and operated by Asia Divers. Established in 1987, Asia Divers is one of the oldest and most well-respected dive outfits in the Philippines, expertly managed by a team that includes British, Australian and Swedish partners.
