—Some things to do in Padre Burgos, Southern Leyte—
Padre Burgos in Southern Leyte is home to some of the best scuba diving and snorkeling in the Philippines, and has one of the least disturbed coral reef systems in the world. Sogod Bay is one of the very few places where the magnificent whale sharks can be seen reliably and a day tour snorkeling in the company of the world’s largest fish is an experience of a lifetime. The coral ‘house’ reef is just a couple of metres in front of our private beach and our Water Sports Centre offers snorkeling, catamaran sailing and kayaking. Scuba divers can enjoy luxurious accommodation and superb service without compromising their diving experience in any way. We work closely with all the local dive shops, providing free return transportation and offering a range of diving packages. Compared with most other diving and snorkeling destinations, Padre Burgos sees a very low volume of divers enjoying the crystal clear, sheltered water against a backdrop of green forested mountains.
In addition to the wonderful underwater world, Southern Leyte offers a wealth of visitor attractions and activities including sailing, kayaking, dolphin and whale watching, boat trips to secluded beaches, caving, hiking, tours into the mountains, visits to historic sites and churches and wonderful insight into the life and culture of the Visayan people. A short boat ride from the Resort lies Limasawa Island, which boasts the site of the first Christian mass in the Philippines in addition to wonderful beaches, superb diving and snorkeling and a delightfully peaceful and unhurried atmosphere.
