Sumilon Island

By: | July 30th, 2014 | 0 Comment

Sumilon Island, which means “take refuge”, is all of 24 hectares of luxuriant tropical greens enveloped by an astonishing collection of marine flora and fauna teeming in its lucid and azure waters.

This island is by far the most popular diving spot in the whole of Visayas because of its amazing underwater views. When before its corals were seriously ravaged by the Muro Ami fishermen with the use of the dynamite fishing technique, now it has flourished into a world class 39-hectare marine sanctuary that serves as a home to thousands of aquatic species – the Muro Ami left only to fill the pages of history.


To take refuge in this island paradise is truly a dreamy experience. There are available package tours for one-day visits or you can book for a stay at the Sumilon Bluewater Island Resort.

This resort features amenities such as organized island tours, biking, windsurfing, trekking, scuba diving, snorkeling and deep sea dives. They also have fish feeding and boat rides. On some days, you might just want to gaze at the horizon and while the time away in a cottage perched atop a cliff. Or you may want to indulge in a massage or sample their great food selection beside an eternity pool.
