Malapascua Island Travel Guide: 141 reviews and 425 photos


Malapascua Island is about eight km north-east of Cebu and 25 km west of Leyte. It is sometimes referred to as Logon, after Barangay Logon, the main community in the south of the island. A walk around the island, which is 2 & half km long and about one km wide, will take you to friendly little fishing villages and deserted bays in idyllic locations. The best snorkelling area can still be found around the craggy little offshore island of Lapus-Lapus.

Bounty Beach

White sand Bounty Beach on the south coast has seen most development for the tourism industry. There you'll find a good selection of restaurants, beach bars, dive shops and basic, but pleasant place to stay. All together there are about a dozen beaches scattered round the island.

Mangrove Oriental Resort

A beautiful bay can be spotted at Mangrove Oriental Resort, a quiet secluded place built on a hill on the west coast of the island.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:White Sand Beaches and Crystal Clear Water.
  • Cons:Risky Banca Ride to the Island.
  • In a nutshell:Truly The Pride of Cebu!

    Wow! I should go here one! Haha!Negros has a nice snorkeling spot too- Off beaten Sipalay. It's really far from Bacolod but from what I heard was also beautiful and the snorkelling was also nice. I think it's less developed than this though.
