The Balinghai dive site in Boracay has a parallel wall.
The Balinghai dive site is located between the Punta Bunga and the Diniwid dive sites. Balinghai is only 10 minutes by boat ride from the shores of Boracay's station one and two.
The dive site consists of two walls that are positioned parallel from each other. The two walls have different minimum and maximum depths, and both have different species of corals and plants.
The shallow wall has more crevices and cracks where critters and fishes are hiding and swimming around. You will find lionfish, triggerfish, anthias, pufferfish, bannerfish, and angelfish swimming around these cracks on the wall.
It's also very common to see morays, eels, and scorpionfish, as well as angelfish and gobbies at the Balinghai dive site.
The deep wall in Balinghai is home to tuna, some blue spotted stingrays and white tips sharks.
The whole diving site is covered with hard and soft corals such as leather and table corals. Many species of sponges and gorgonians are also living there.
Why do you need to dive at the Balinghai diving site?
The deeper part of the wall in Balinghai goes down to around 40 metres (130 feet). This part of Balinghai looks more like a sloped reef than a wall. Even if most of the time you will stay around 30 metres (100 feet), you will need to have good buoyancy due to the ascending and descending currents depending on the tides.
If you go to Balinghai early in the morning to the medium and deeper part (Nitrox recommended for a NDL longer bottom time), you will be able to see some eagle rays, specially if there is quite a strong current at the same time. White tip sharks can be spotted during the morning dive too.
What will you see at the Balinghai dive site?
A parallel wall is quite rare to dive around the world, just to feel and see this double wall is a good reason to dive at the Balinghai dive site.
But Balinghai is also home to a lot of marine life, its biodiversity is a must-see!
The 2 walls are covered with colorful corals, differents species of sponges, and many kinds of gorgonians.
Balinghai is home to shoals of fishes like the blue triggerfish, groupers, school of jacks, stingrays and sharks.
