Southern Leyte Philippines: Let’s Go Diving!
Southern Leyte, the destination for much of the Explore Traveler team this Christmas season 2014. Merry Christmas from the heart of the Diving Capital Of The World! It is a beautiful day to go for a dive! The tropical climate of the Philippines is pleasant and nice…..the gentle breezes blow. The Coral Triangle is alive with over 2, 228 different species of fish, and 76% of the worlds coral species. The diver often will be treated to several different species of turtles. These warm waters are home to 6 out of 7 of the Turtle species in the world. The dolphins love to play in the waters and the Whale Sharks pass through, as they migrate through the triangle. These awesome Whale Sharks linger in the area for several months, taking advantage of the abundant food. What is there not to love about the Southern Leyte?
