"Paradise Found" Malcapuya Island by Rastarigo

Malcapuya Island Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 33 photos

landing on the shores of malcapuya is another milestone in my life as a true-blue beachbum. i realized going there is not as difficult as i used to believe from what i see or read somewhere. the first time i learned about this island was when i bumped into an online travelogue chronicling the annual philippine hobbiecat. the sea race began sailing from boracay going to amanpulo passing through the calamian islands (where malcapuya belongs) and pitching its last stop at club paradise. the event was also featured on a sports oriented tv show where the host lavished praise for its beach calling it 'gorgeous!' she was absolutely right. the beach glistens like snow under the sun from the blindingly white sand that is so powdery exhibiting uniform texture from end to end of the beach. it feels very safe swimming on its water due to the gradual slope that knows no rock but the other half of the whole stretch of the beach has some seagrass growth which makes the beach far from perfect. oh despite me lashing out at its imperfections, i would like to welcome malcapuya as a newcomer in my list of top 10 beautiful beaches in the philippines and i don't see it bowing out anytime soon.

what you would likely see in the island: resident dog, monkey, pig and chickens, cashew trees, bamboo huts, artesian well, gracious owner, classy white house and the stunning san....ah...uhm..***bleeped***. sorry i cannot really tell it to you guys. i'm positively selfish hahaha.

Watch us arriving in the shores of Malcapuya or join us swimming in the crystal-clear waters of Malcapuya or you'll regret you didn't.
