About For Backpacking Divers...by Divers who Backpack...
Anilao Backpackers cover
Description We're a bunch of divers who believe that a friendly, safe and clean place to sleep with hot showers; that is within walking distance of a great shore dive is all we seek when traveling on a budget.

No fancy restaurant, no swimming pool and no flatscreen TV in your room...but warm friendly staff and a nice room for a good night's sleep to recharge you for another day of diving!

That's why we've started-up Anilao Backpackers!!!

We're a minute's walk away from "Basura" where it's common to spot Frogfish, Octopus, Nudi Branchs, Shrimps, Crabs, Mandrin Fishes, Lembeh Sea Dragons and loads more!

Spotting starts from as shallow as 2m and can go to over 20m on a slopping "rubble and sand dive site" with patches of coral gardens spread over a large bay area.

We have 5 rooms of which 2 are air-conditioned attached bathroom with hot showers and 3 are fan rooms with shared hot showers for all to use.

We provide light breakfast to our house guests and a continuous flow of coffee, tea and drinking water throughout the day. The option of a "3 meals a day package" can be made when checking-in.

Crisps, soft drinks, mobile phone reloads, shampoo and soap can be easily purchased at the local convenience stores nearby. There are many around us, all no more than a 3 minute walk from the next.

Anilao is approximately 80km south of Manila Airport and Anilao Backpackers is located only 5 minutes away from the local Anilao Pier.

Apart from shore diving the house reef, other dive sites are mainly accessed by boat. In the event of bad weather conditions, vans can be arranged to transport you to calm, protected and safer dive sites.

While we operate our little cottage, we support local dive operators. Together, we offer an affordable place to stay and diving in one of the region's favorite macro / critter dive destinations.

We are divers who backpack...this is "Anilao Backpackers" and we welcome you...
