The Maite dive site is a reef near the village of San Juan, west of the island of Siquijor in the Philippines. The name of the spot means ‘cemetery’, because it is located in front of a cemetery. Some people find this a scary idea, and others think of this as an opportunity for meditation. There are even packages offering combinations of yoga and dive courses here. The underwater topography is in the form of a flat slope. This dive site is suitable for snorkeling, free diving, and macro photography. Once divers go under the water, it is best if they go toward the southeast.

When to go

The best time to dive is during the dry season from January to May, although it is possible to dive in the wet season (the rest of the year). Water temperatures average 26-30C/79-86F.

What to see

The shallow reef has soft corals and unique fish, such as blue ribbon eels, mandarinfish, graceful prawn gobies, and pajama cardinalfish.
