QUICK GUIDE: Lemlunay Resort in Maasim, Sarangani

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 under water 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!
