Tambuli is located along the coast of Mactan in Cebu. It is one of the most exciting dive sites. Tambuli is a great place for macro diving and photography. Diving here is suitable for all levels of divers, from novice to experienced. At the end of the slope there is a small airplane (at a depth of 22m/72ft) that was sunk as an artificial wreck in Tambuli several years ago, which is teeming with reef fish.
