Travellers' Choice
Sangat Island Dive Resort is an eco style dive resort situated on the Coron Bay area of Northern Palawan. Sangat Island is one of the few limestone islands in the Calamian group and is quite unique because it not only offers outstanding white beaches it also has mangroves, excellent dive sites, hot springs and dense jungle forest providing the perfect environment to an array of marine life, fauna and flora that cannot be found in other parts of the Philippine Islands. Other activities involved are island hopping, sailing, jet skiing and kayaking. We are extremely passionate about conserving the environment and therefore run on solar and make water through desalination. One of the best kept secrets of eco-conscious paradise-seekers and scuba diving enthusiasts from all over the globe.

Dear Fellow Travellers , I want to let you into a big secret. Mother Nature has blessed Sangat Island in every way, from the gorgeous limestone cliffs, to the beautiful coral reefs, to the romantic white sand beach. This place is a nature lover’s paradise. That’s why I will always return to Sangat. Well that, and for those delicious buffet meals (which are masarap) with those desserts to die for!! On our last visit to Sangat on November 2019. My son Josh and I decided to try some scuba diving using the professional Sangat dive shop. Talk about an excellent dive shop! Top of the line equipment, top of the line dive boats, top of the line dive masters; we were in good hands! Sangat Island’s dive shop wins the award for beat located dive shop in all of Coron. It takes just a few minutes to reach the famous dive wrecks of Coron from Sangat. Coron town dive shops will take over an hour to reach the same wrecks which Sangat reaches in mere minutes. Here is a list of dive wrecks and travel time from Sangat: 1. Olympia Maru Wreck - 4 mins 2. Morazan Wreck - 8 mins 3. Irako Wreck - 8 mins 4. Akitshusima Wreck - 15 mins 5. Okikawa Maru Wreck - 15 mins 6. Gun Boat Wreck - 12 mins With Sangat you spend less travelling time to dive sites so you have more time for hanging on a hammick back on Sangat. A big shout out to the friendly staff at Sangat’s dive shop. Thanks again for all the great memories: Jojo, Luke, Will, Safari, Culoy, and Maya - you guys made our trip awesome. We will be back in 2021 for more shangria. Regards to all, John M

Been a couple of years but still lingering in my memory. Load water sport possibilities, but not being that active thought might find it boring. Far from, such great staff, good, varied food and total laid-back atmosphere, enjoyed my time there

Brilliant place for wreck enthusiasts. Fantastic dive centre all the dive guides are brilliant especially Ed who was our dive guide for 10 days. Boat crews are extremely helpful & even carried our dive gear for us when we went to the volcanic lake !!! Plenty of different foods on offer at the buffet tables & a few well deserved beers on the bar on the rock. Accommodation was great but don’t expect hot showers ha ha. Look out for the monkeys & don’t leave anything shiny on your balcony or it might disappear. Long journey for us but we’ll worth it & had a fantastic time & would highly recommend this place to other divers especially.

We spent 6 nights at Sangat resort with my wife and young son. The resort is extremely beautiful, there doesn't appear to be much of a beach from google earth, but there is infact a beautiful expansive sandy beach. The Scuba facility and staff are first class. The wrecks are only minutes away (vs Hours staying in Coron Town). Dive guides are very experienced and know the wrecks literaly inside out. Very used to guiding divers inside these huge wrecks and tolerant with the nervousness that can come from diving in these new and challenging environments for most divers. Nitrox available and recommended on the wrecks. 15ltr tank came in handy for myself being so unfit :-) Staff at the resort are wonderful. They could not be more helpful. After the first day they had the kids highchair ready for us at each meal, and a bowl of fresh chilli meaning we didn't have to request it. Front desk Kat was also so friendly and helpful, booking us a room in Coron town for our departure day at a discounted price. Prior to the stay I was considering Sangat or another nearby resort, and we are very much happy we chose Sangat. Amazing memorable stay, we will be back when the young one can dive.

Of everywhere I went in the Philippines, this was my favorite spot. The island is a paradise: comfortable and cool rooms (despite having no AC), great views of the ocean, and an incredible dive shop. My partner and I are both divers and came uncertain if we actually wanted to dive - but after a single trip with these folks we were hooked and couldn't go enough in our stay here. The night dive is not to be missed, but every dive is really great. The reason to dive here is for accessible wrecks and the dive staff are attentive to diver nervousness in these new environments. Every staff member at the dive shop is great - knowledgeable, thoughtful, and attentive. The food is excellent and plentiful, the bar plentiful and happy hours are generous. As a vegetarian, I didn't always have lots of options in other places in the Philippines, but here there were always tons of options + I was stuffed every night. The folks who work here are wonderful - great service, helpful in every way. Really cannot recommend this place enough! I can't wait to go back.
