Johnlhea Coral Garden

One of the top shore entries in Siquijor for divers is located 1.3 kilometers south of the town center of San Juan. Look for the John Lhea Resort sign board on the right side and turn in to check in at Dive Point DC, where you can begin your exhilarating shore dive at the enchanting Coral Garden. This site is particularly recommended for night dives.

During your dive, you can spot a variety of marine life including turtles, scorpion fish, seamoth, and schools of silvers. In the evening, keep an eye out for crabs (porcelain and decorator), shrimps, Spanish dancers, and frogfish.

To start your dive, make the necessary preparations for the beach entry, which has easy access. Descend into the water until you reach a depth suitable for diving and head west. As you slowly descend, you'll encounter a plateau that reaches a depth of about 3-5 meters before ending in a small drop-off. Continue in the same direction, and you'll soon come across the mesmerizing coral garden. This dive offers an excellent range from 12 to 18 meters in depth, with sandy patches nestled among the coral rocks. Please exercise caution as stone fish are known to inhabit the area. The best time to enter the water is during high tide. And don't miss the opportunity for a breathtaking night dive, as this dive site is renowned as the most popular location for night dives on the island.

With excellent visibility of 17 meters and a maximum depth of 18 meters, this dive is suitable for beginners and divers of all levels. Immerse yourself in the beauty of Siquijor's underwater world at Coral Garden, a must-visit dive site.
