The Philippines was recognized as the 2019 World’s Leading Dive destination in the recent World Travel Awards (WTA).

The Department of Tourism has announced that the Philippines bested eight other global dive destinations also nominated under the same category which includes Azores Islands, Bora Bora in French Polynesia, Cayman Islands, Fiji, Galapagos Islands, Great Barrier Reef in Australia, Maldives, and Mexico.

Department of Tourism (DOT) Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said this recognition is a validation that the Philippines is truly a premier dive destination.

“Dubbed by marine experts and scientists as the heart of marine biodiversity in the world, our country is home to the highest concentration of coral reef life and astounding variety of marine species,” he said in a statement.—AAC
