Sepoc Beach Center
Sepoc Beach Center, the famous company outing and team building venue.
Eagle Point Beach and Dive Resort in Batangas owned a part of Maricaban Island called Sepoc Beach Center. A famous shoreline located on the western tip of nearby Maricaban Island, which is about 15-20 minutes boat ride from Eagle Point Resort. Sepoc is actually a narrow peninsula where it would only take 5 minutes to walk across at its shortest width. On the south side, facing the distant but yet prominent Mindoro Island, is a beautiful stretch of white sand beach. It is nestled between a massive rock outcrop known as Sepoc Point, a famous scuba diving spot and a hill that goes up about a hundred or so feet above sea level. A popular Anilao diving site is also located here and popularly known as Sepoc Wall diving site. Normally an easy and very pretty dive, with good coral gardens around 16 ft and a wall dropping to 90 ft. This Anilao diving site has shallow water teems with a profusion of small reef fish, while the wall has bigger reef fish, Barrel Sponges, gorgonian sea fans, a multitude of different species of nudibranchs, sea cucumbers and pelagic visitors.
Sitting in the center is the beach center complete with an open sided dining area and function area and bar good for about 60-100 guests, rest room facilities, a watch tower and a number of inviting native hammocks. There are also a number of nipa huts at the base of the hillside among the short stunted trees. Take note that the facility has no sleeping accommodations. To maintain its pristine beauty, camping and sleepover are not allowed.
From the beach waterline, guests can expect mostly sandy bottom for about 100 feet before they reach coral. The coral reef garden is quite extensive for it stretches from Sepoc Point practically down the whole length of the island rich with marine life. Its crystal waters offer guests hours of fun snorkeling and to be one with the sea and all its wonders. For those who don’t want to go swimming, they can climb the large hill to get a fantastic panoramic view, explore several nearby coves and caves by hiking or kayaking.
Stretched out on the length of the north side of Sepoc is mostly a rocky shore. It offers not too much for regular beach comers and swimmers but to sport and recreational divers, the north side offers one of the best dive location called the Sepoc Wall. Normally an easy and very pretty dive, with good coral gardens around 16 ft and a wall dropping to 90 ft. The shallow water teems with a profusion of small reef fish, while the wall has bigger reef fish, Barrel Sponges, Gorgonian Sea Fans, a multitude of different species of Nudibranchs, Sea Cucumbers and Pelagic visitors.
