MALAPASCUA

Malapascua is an island in Cebu Province north of Cebu Island. The first image Malapascua offers will stay with you for a long time: an exceedingly beautiful pristine stretch of white sand, crystal clear waters bordered by coconut trees and a dozen of scattered native style resorts. But as with all up-and-coming islands experiencing a boom in tourism, Malapascua is rapidly becoming a second Boracay with modern concrete hotels to cater for the varied needs of the many.


Despite this modernization, even the largest of resorts embrace the native build styles for a portion of their rooms. The north of the island remains untouched where the fishermen are just fishermen in native style houses.


Malapascua is a diving destination. The main attractions are the thresher sharks and mantarays which are regularly encountered at the Monad Shoal. At other divesites, you can see mandarin fish, pygmy seahorses and the blue-ringed octopus.
