[Bantayan+Malapascua #8] What to do in Malapascua?!


This is the final post on the [Bantayan+Malapascua] Series and Malapascua is such a nice place for enjoying beach and nature. In this final post, I would leave you with some visual ideas on what to do here in the charming island of Malapascua. I’m starting to miss this place everytime I look at the photos. Enjoy and share this post with your friends special those planning to go to Malapascua this summer!

We were so excited with how stunning the sugary fine white beach and the overall ambiance that we decided to have fun a create a pyramid ala pep squad πŸ™‚

Malapascua Island is small (similar to Boracay) that you can have a boat trip around the island for P600 for the 2-3 hour trip. They rent goggles for P100 each which you could use for snorkeling in nice coral reefs and the Japanese shipwreck :!

There is no nightlife on this island on weekdays and occasionally only high-peak season weekends. But this is the hang out place to be at night @ the Sunsplash Bar behind Cocobana Resort. Cool ambiance πŸ™‚ This is also the place for Still Standing at 15 shots! When we left Philippines was in the no. 4 spot πŸ™‚

This is a must! Filipino style Hilot Massage for P250 πŸ™‚ It is soo good that I always keep on wondering why would I go for shiatsu or swedish when we have our own unique Hilot massage that you would keep coming back for more. They use coconut oil which would be ideal for sun bathing after the massage πŸ™‚

You can also be a bartender at the floating bar during happy hour from 5pm-7pm buy 1 take 1 for drinks πŸ™‚

Or Watch the Sunset in this floating bar… Strangers by the Sunset

Then have dinner @ Mabuhay Food for the cheap Filipino grill food for P250/head at most πŸ™‚

Sunbathing or thinking about your pasts and looking forward to your future.

The best part is swimming to your hearts content! It’s like having a huge swimming pool since the water is clean, calm and with fishes to see. Although the corals were not taken cared of well so most of them are dead those in front of the main beach.

Order milkshake here at Blue Waters resort in this famous Sari-Sari Store format bar πŸ™‚ By the way, they accept credit card but with 10% surcharge πŸ™‚ Only a few resorts (Blue Corals also) in the island accept credit card, so bring cash! My estimate is P1,500/day on average πŸ™‚

Or you can decide to walk or ride a motorcycle (P200) to see the island. Visit this honeymoon place called The Mangrove Oriental Resort.

Finally, leaving the island of Malapascua… this is a picture of our boat dock at Maya port πŸ™‚

  1. nice pictures! i’ve been hearing a lot about malapascua and bantayan island lately. do you think i’ll survive if i go there alone? i’ve no one to travel with unfortunately.

  2. @Sidney — It is unspoiled and hope it remains that way.
    @Daene — you’ll survive going there alone although it is alot more expensive. Although there’s not alot to do if you are alone… you can consider it as a retreat πŸ™‚
