The Calamian Islands are known for their many natural attractions and is a popular attraction for tourists and cruise lines.
Tourism is the main income for the local community and a significant part of the island has been transformed into a resort with rentable cottages and exclusive villas. The island and resort is frequented by common tourists but also scuba divers who seek to explore some of the many Japanese shipwrecks still in the area around the Calamian Islands since World War II. – wikipedia.org
Sangat Island Dive Resort occupies quite nearly the entire southwestern cusp of Sangat Island, part of the Calamian Island group to the north of Palawan.
The island is in close proximity to eleven World War II wrecks. Ten of these wrecks are historically significant Japanese War and Supply ships sunk by American forces during the “Battle of Coron Bay” in 1944.
Of these ten World War II wreck sites, eight have found their final resting place only a few minutes’ boat ride from the beach front.
