Moalboal is a small and relaxed town on Cebu Island (just one hundred kilometers from Cebu City), located in the Visayas archipelago in the Philippines. The town is best known for the outstanding dive sites and the backpackers' welcoming atmosphere. Many dive shops and cheap accommodations are part of the town.

Here the sea is really clear with a lot of reefs near the coast –- some are very damaged due to natural conditions like typhoons, but you can still find some excellent spots -- Pescador Island is one of the best, as it's filled with sharks and mantas near the island coast. It's an underwater paradise! Diving is the main reason people come to Moalboal, but if you don't like diving, you can find one good beach (however, if you are familiar with the Philippines' beaches, you will be really disappointed!). White Beach is located five kilometers from Moalboal village, but is easy to reach and there is also the chance for good snorkeling there -- just rent some equipment (for inexpensive prices, rent a bike or motorbike and just go for the lazy day). There are also some tour operators that can arrange good hiking and climbing on the island, but it will be a bit more expensive.

The easiest way to arrive in Moalboal is by bus, as there are about six daily connections to Cebu City and the bus station is on the main road. You can easily catch a tricycle to your accommodation.

The hostels in Moalboal are really nice, backpacker oriented, and connected usually to some dive shop so that you can save some money if you join accommodation plus diving. Moalboal hostels are usually filled with divers staying for a long time, so book your accommodation in advance if staying here during high season or on weekends.
