Sangat Island Dive Resort, which opened it’s doors to the general public in 1994, occupies quite nearly the entire southwestern cusp of Sangat Island. To date, this perfect little slice of paradise offers our guests fourteen native-styled, ecologically “low-impact” accommodations, restaurant and bar facilities, and an internationally-renowned water sports and scuba diving center.
Sangat island is totally off the public electricity grid and fully independent when it comes to electricity and water supply. In our efforts to be green and clean we use Solar power as a form of renewable energy. Sangat Island Resort is the only resort in the Philippines that is 100% powered by Solar energy and only uses diesel powered generators during cloudy days. Our 30 KW solar power system is capable of powering the whole resort including all the air compressors, desalination plant (fresh water source), ice makers and refrigeration.
Edged by a 300-meter span of white sand beachfront, postcard-perfect tropical waters, and coral reef gardens brimming with sea life, Sangat Island Dive Resort has become, in just a few short years, one of the premier resort destinations for eco-conscious paradise-seekers and scuba diving enthusiasts the world over.
One of the more extraordinary aspects that Sangat Island Dive Resort offers it’s scuba diving clientele involves the island’s close proximity to eleven World War II era wrecks. Ten of these wrecks are historically significant Japanese War and Supply ships sunk by American forces during the “Battle of Coron Bay” in 1944.
Of these ten World War II wreck sites, eight have found their final resting place a scant 5 to 30 minute boat ride from our beachfront!
