Best Time for diving Anilao
The best time to dive this region is between December and May. The waters are calm and the visibility is at its best. However, if one visits during Christmas Season or Chinese New Year, some dive-sites appear to be a bit crowded. Generally, the region is worth visiting all around the year. However, the conditions could turn a bit bad during monsoon season, with rough and choppy surface and bad visibility.
Many reefs are shallow and can be explored by snorkeling. That makes Anilao a perfect destination for spending a great weekend with family and friends. There are plenty of Resorts, Guest Houses, and Hotels in Anilao, fitting for each budget.
