Leyte has had a great role in the history of the Philippines and is now a quality destination for divers looking for quiet dive sites. The island does not know mass tourism and is therefore quite a peaceful place. If you like massive resorts and hectic city life, then Leyte is not for you. There, you will find spectacular mountainous landscapes and unspoilt seascapes.
Diving around the island is a great pleasure and you will probably be “alone” when diving. Leyte has exceptional dive sites, such as the nice wall of Adrian's Cove, the stunning corals of Coral Garden and the beautiful reef of Heaven' s Gate. The sites are good for beginners as well as advanced divers. In addition to this undisturbed and great dives sites, hotels and resorts in Leyte are very affordable. You can get to Leyte via the Tacloban’s airport with a few daily flights from Manila and cebu.
