Although Zamboanguita is not well known since many people thought that it is part of Dumaguete City (it is not! it is 32 kilomoters south of it), Zamboanguita Boast of good Dive Sites, beach resorts (like Antulang) and Port Siyt, which is a natural Harbor and favorite docking area for rich people who own sailboats. Along the dirt road going to Antulang beach resort, you may see Port Siyt and the Local and Foreign Sailboats that docks there.

Other than Bahura Beach Resort which is 20 kilometers Away, Antulang Beach Resort also sports fine white/golden sand and with crystal clear waters. The current here is strong so I would recommend that when swimming, always be with a life preserver inflatable. the beaches here in Zamboanguita is more suited for snorkelling and diving due to numerous coral formations and rock formations below the sea and it is in proximity due Apo Island which is 10 kilometers away by boat (apo island is a world class diving site). So if you have snorkel or diving gear, the beach in Antulang is the place to be. Besides being known as the Place where Philippine Actor Ryan Agoncillo proposed to Actress Judy Ann Santos. this is the only resort in the whole province that has private pool villas! (but you have to pay then 10,000 pesos a day!) and spectacular diving sites. This beach resort is located 32 km south of dumaguete in Zamboanguita Town. A single room here costs 3,500 pesos and a double room is 4.500 pesos. The beach is good for swimming but be careful since the waves are strong but is ideal for snorkelling and scuba. they also arrange boat tours to nearby diving paradise of APO Island.
