ANILAO” is a smal barangay in Mabini, Batangas that served as the jump-off point of divers to the various dive sites scattered along the coastline of Mabini & Tingloy in the early 80’s when the roads to the other barangays were not yet operational. This barangay used to be a small barrio and got its name from the towering Anilao tree that stood prominently in the northwestern boundary of Mabini and Bauan. Although it is a misnomer, “Anilao” is still the term popularly used by divers when referring collectively to the municipalities of Mabini & Tingloy.

I have started downloading pictures of “Anilao” in the Pages section. Check out the Planet Dive Resort as well as the Twin Rocks & Barge articles.

REFERENCE: Municipality of Mabini, Batangas, Philippines
