Malapascua was first ‘discovered’ by present-day foreigners over 30 years ago, when Swiss national, Freddy of Cocobana Resort bought land. Ten years later he opened the island’s very first resort. Freddy is not a diver, but at the same time dive safaris were coming up from Cebu and making the first ever dives with thresher sharks. Malapascua quickly became known as a premier dive destination in the Philippines and divers starting visiting regularly.

Today, Malapascua remains a beautiful, sleepy island, as yet unspoiled by tourism, with white sandy beaches, lush green palm trees and surrounded by clear blue waters. Read More:

An island situated in the Visayan Sea, located across a shallow strait from the northernmost tip of Cebu Island is Malapascua Island. The island is 3 kilometers long and 1 kilometer wide, with a population of about 4,000. The main beach (Bounty Beach) has white sand beaches and crystal clear waters. The west coast is ideal for swimming and snorkeling.

Malapascua is a developing island without basic infrastructure. It does not have a many of the things we often take for granted in our homes. This means you need to come with an open mind and be ready for things that may make you a little uncomfortable such as salty water, electric blackouts during the day etc. But you are on holiday, relax, it’s not a problem.

It is beginning to get a worldwide reputation for incredible diving which means now is a great time to come, before it gets too famous. It is the only place in the world you can reliably see thresher sharks and is possible the best place in the Philippines for big fish encounters.

Malapascua is also long-familiar among the international dive society. Divers travel here to meet the friendly Thresher shark. These are big and up to 6 meters, but safe to humans. The Thresher lives in very deep waters but show up daily at Monad Shoal to be cleaned by cleaner fish. This is one of the few places in the world where we can have a glimpse of this splendid fish close-up at only 23 meters distance downward.  Read More:

At 2.5 kilometers in length and 1 kilometer in breadth, Malapascua is a small island. Don’t let its size fool you because it is world-renowned for its coral gardens, submarine walls, and underwater shoals. Divers all over the world visit Malapascua for a chance to see graceful thresher sharks and manta rays getting themselves cleaned by bluestreak and mooncleaner wrasses.

But even for those who don’t scuba dive, Malapascua has a myriad of exciting non-diving activities and picturesque destinations. Indeed, you are assured that your holiday here won’t be plagued by boring idleness.

Malapascua Island is surrounded by numerous rocky outcroppings and islets. All of these tiny geographical neighbors are home to a rich collection of mammals, birds, and reptiles.

Beneath the waves of these outcroppings and islets lie vast sanctuaries for marine life. Many of these islands have coral walls that are encrusted with magnificent corals, sponges, aquatic flora, and more.  Read More:
