Perched on a cliff and overlooking the endless blue sea of Sarangani Bay is Lemlunay, a world-class diving resort with truly magnificent views both above and below water. There’s not much of a beach if you’re aiming for bumming in sun and sand but the resort makes up for it with recreational areas: an extensive playground, wide-open spaces for picnics or games, and a seemingly endless infinity pool where you can swim or tan to your heart’s content.
Of course, the true beauty of Lemlunay resides underwater at the spectacular Tinoto Wall. A numerous array of sea creatures — from fish to corals to turtles and even whale sharks — reside here. It’s a breathtaking journey to take through the reef, and one you definitely don’t want to miss!
