MalapasCua (Cebu, Philippines)

Malapascua Island has the charm that many have so often wished to find in a tiny isolated beach paradise. The beach bungalows nestled in between the locals' homes makes you feel like you have really left the western world behind.


While it’s the world-class diving that attracts most visitors to the tiny and idyllic island of Malapascua, its lovely beaches and air of joie de vivre are what confirms its reputation as one of Cebu’s most popular destinations. Diving with the thresher sharks is the main highlight. Nowhere in the world do these distinctive-tailed sharks congregate in shallower waters.
