The municipality of Mabini is flanked by Balayan Bay and Batangas Bay. The name might not ring a bell, but the more popularly known Anilao has put Mabini on a map as one of the famous diving destinations in the Philippines. Most of the resorts lining the coasts of Mabini are located in Anilao. More often than not, these resorts function as diving centers where they offer intro courses for first-time divers and also diving tour packages to the professional ones.

Anilao is also the jump-off point to other beach destinations like the Masasa Beach in Tingloy and the Sombrero Island. Aside from the water activities, hiking is also possible here. The popular one is the Mount Gulugod-Baboy, which offers the view of the Balayan Bay and Batangas Bay. If you are seeking more adventure, you can do both hiking and island-hopping in Anilao. You just need to secure a boat before you start your hike, so when you finally descend, the boat will be ready. There are resorts near the mountain’s jump-off point, so you can just negotiate the rate and the time.

Due to the popularity of diving and snorkeling, commercial establishments such as resorts abound, including restaurants. The resorts normally offer food services, but if you want to explore other dishes and specialties in Mabini, here’s a list of some of the food establishments in town.
