“Flourishing Wall Dives”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Dove at Kalanggaman with Sea Explorers (Ocean Vida dive shop) at two wall sites. Unbelievable sea life and flourishing corals at both wall sites. We did one area in the morning, had a picnic lunch on the island, and the other area in the afternoon.

Unfortunately, the shallow reef surrounding the island was devastated in typhoon Yolanda in 2013, but the deeper sites have been unscathed.

Bring some water and sun protection when you come to the island and lookout for rusted nails / tetanus in disguise hidden in the sand. Also try to time your visit for low tide so you can walk out on the sandbar.

“expensive and boring”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

long boat ride for something that already exists on Malapascua-not worth the long trip from here, snorkelling is not as good as other locations either - the locals will rave about this island so expectations where high and sadly not met

“Beautiful beach but so-so underwater life”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Nice place, but pretty high marine park fee. Diving is not as good as many other dive sites that cost less.

“Nice, but perhaps abit ex”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Kalanggaman Island is pretty (almost as pretty as Maldives). Though we went there on a Sun and it was rather crowded with the local ppl. I find it abit ex as we had to pay extra for the marine conservation.
The dive site (wall dive) are pretty nice!
