Anilao is brimming with marine life, which makes it a famous diving destination. Anilao is a barangay in the town of Mabini in Batangas. It is the usual jump-off point for many divers and even those who want to visit nearby beaches islands such as Sombrero Island, Oscar’s Beach, and Masasa Beach in the island municipality of Tingloy. But aside from diving, there are other attractions and things to do for those who are not really into diving. Visitors can do snorkeling, island-hopping, and hiking. Although Anilao shores are more on the rocky side than a sandy one, weekend warriors can still enjoy snorkeling through its waters. For those who are into ticking off mountain peaks and summits and enjoying heights instead of the depths, one popular mountain to scale in Anilao is the Mt. Gulugod-Baboy where you can get a view of the Batangas Bay and Balayan Bay.
A number of beach and dive resorts have been established in the area, attracting local and foreign tourists alike. In no particular order, here are the Top 5 Resorts in Anilao according to Agoda users as of March 2017:
