The newest dive spot to visit in Panglao is Project Sirena, which is part of South Palms Resort Panglao's efforts to provide a unique diving experience to its guests as well as a new home to marine species in the area.

Nearby, you can find colorful corals, playful schools of fish, and sea turtles—a view that's simply breathtaking.
