The sweltering heat nowadays calls for a serious dip in the waters for a cool-off.

Adventurers and thrill-seekers can take advantage of the heat of the warm and dry season by discovering world-renowned diving spots in the country where they can literally chill.

The Philippines has been honored as the “World’s Leading Dive Destination” for the fifth year in a row during the 2023 World Travel Awards, making it perfect for Pinoys to experience  breathtaking scenery while cooling off for the “summer season.”

Klook, Asia’s leading travel and experiences platform, suggested prime spots where they can explore the cooler world of the waters.

Cebu 

Well-known for its cultural and historical attractions, those looking for beaches and aquatic experiences can find some of the best activities in Cebu.

For those discovering diving for the first time, the Discover Scuba Diving in Moalboal with PADI 5 Star CDC may be the best place to start.

Meanwhile, with Discovery Dive, tourists are provided with equipment and a quick and easy introduction to exploring the ocean before getting a full, immersive experience.

Under expert supervision, those diving can discover and learn more about the ocean firsthand, whether about the different habitats or hanging out with the sardines.

Dumaguete 

Located in Central Visayas, Dumaguete is known for its colorful Buglasan Festival, ancestral houses, coffee shops and its water activities.

Those who want to get a glimpse of the habitat in the ocean without going too deep into the waters can try snorkeling, a tamer water jaunt.
