Pescador Island

Pescador Island is an island located in the Tañon Strait, a few kilometres from the western coast of the island of Cebu in the Philippines. It is governed by the municipality of Moalboal.

The island derives its name from the Philippines’ Spanish colonial heritage and the abundance of fish living on the surrounding coral reef, and the many fishermen that fish them (“pescador” translates from Spanish to “fisherman”). The rich marine life also attracts recreational divers from the many dive operations in nearby Panagsama.

The underwater composition of the Pescador island reef is a sandy slope covered with soft coral from 5–10 metres (16–33 ft), followed by a wall covered with hard corals dropping down to about 40 metres (130 ft). On the west side of the island, an open-top underwater cave nicknamed ‘the Cathedral’ can be found. Most recreational dive tours start at the island’s south end, and let the divers drift with the current either along the east or the west side of the island. Visibility conditions vary, but the current in the Tañon Strait pushes in clear water that often allows visibility up to 40 metres (130 ft). The island itself has a lighthouse and access steps on the north and east sides.

Moalboal is a fourth income class municipality in the province of Cebu, Philippines.  According to the 2010 census, it has a population of 27,676.  In the 2013 election, it had 18,663 registered voters.
