Exploring Malapascua Island

Island hopping is the best way to explore the island. It’s our planned activity for our second day in Malapascua, we off to the beach early morning at 7 am. Ate offers a refer a boatman who can bring us to island. Boat rental, tour and snorkeling gear cost P2,100 (USD52). But according to some locals there we can get cheaper rates so be sure to ask and compare price if you have enough time. Island hopping takes 4-5 hours so be sure to bring snacks, water and sunblock.


We haven’t started the island adventure yet, but look what we’ve found?! These super cute starfishes scattered along the beach coast. At si Mae, ayaw paawat sa picture with starfish…


And we’re ready to go… We were guided by two super kind boatmen! Gow kuya, gow!



Ayan na ang mga “Eat Girls” excited na tumalon sa dagat! Di masyadong prepare sa bikini si Georgina oh! chos!


Ayun oh, ligayang ligaya sa tubig 🙂


Before we climb this little mountain behind us…


Our second stop is the lighthouse at the island, this is not part of the usual island hopping itinerary but since we do our research we requested Kuya to bring us there. Yes, possible that we get there, pero tiisin nga lang namin ang mga talahib going up. But it’s all worth it.

The next snorkeling site is an old ship wreck underneath this part of the ocean. I don’t have a photo, but believe me it’s a different feeling to see this old ship, feeling mo lang may soul na hihila sa paa mo and will drown you to death. Wala lang, ganun lang ang imagination ko and the rest of the girls so sandali lang kame nag stay dito.


The last stop is another snorkeling site and i can say pinaka bongga sa lahat! Ang gaganda ng mga fishes at super dami…. At may mga parts ma super lalim.

The Bounty Beach of Malapascua Island

Cosmpolitan PH magazine’s Top 10 beaches in the Philippines. It’s a must visit for those who are into diving. The island is known for “Thresher Sharks” according to google you can only find it her. I haven’t seen one, and we didn’t dive when we went here.


So since, I’m not a diver, I just love beach,  I don’t enjoy the place as much as I enjoy Boracay. Malapascua Island is isolated, there’s nothing much to do but to bum around (if you’re not diving). There’s few tourist, mostly Europeans, Americans and Koreans.


If you’re looking for a serene and tranquil place, well this place is for you!




And this is my favorite photo: Local kids playing at the beach!
