Deep Slope is a popular dive site on the island Malapascua in the Philippines. Deep Slope is a plateau that looks like a sand dune, where scuba divers can find unique marine inhabitants. The dunes become a tiny wall, covered with corals. While diving at Deep Slopes, divers can see marine inhabitants around them in the water, and also in the white sand between the seaweed on the bottom of the sea.

When to go

Divers can dive at any time of the year, because the climate is tropical. The rainy season is from July to December. The water temperature here ranges from 25C/78F in January to 29C/85F in May.
