Bounty Beach

Reviewed By MijnlieverdFH - Amsterdam

White beach with restaurants and hotels aligned. Lots of motorized boats used by divers during their dives. They are anchored here too. Excellent sunset and best to view the reflection of lights from the other viewpoint to the restaurants at dinner time.

Logon Beach

Reviewed By Karen C - London

The tidal variations are huge. During the day the water comes right up into the bay, but in the evenings that I was there the tide went out a very long way, leaving rocks and seaweed exposed. This makes for really interesting beachcombing as you watch the sun set. There are heaps of stranded starfish, little crabs, shells, sea urchins and loads more interesting things that have fallen foul of the tide. Some really nice restaurants right on the beach including Angelina's, Amihan and Kokay.

Malapascua Light House

Reviewed By DiveJedi - Amsterdam

It's a light house. Nothing special. Unless you are really into light houses.... It's on the far end of the island where you can find some rather nice, lonely Beaches. It's quite a walk from the main beach, but it can be done in an hour or so. Hot though....
Or one of the motorbike guys can bring you for PHP 100.

Guimbitayan Beach

Reviewed By New_YLOO - Philippines

Guimbatayan beach was our last stop during the island tour (by habal habal!)
It is very beautiful - pure white sand, clean, powdery, wide beach - and it is really long - must be about a kilometer long.
There is a resort at the northern end, if you feel like eating something. We stayed for nearly 2 hours here - just walking, playing in the sand, building Castles, writing names, jumping for wacky shots, scenic photos (the water is amazingly blue!) and relaxing.
We waited to see the sunset - it is not a pure sunset in the water, but rather behind the trees.
On the whole, I would highly recommend coming here. (The beach is a good contrast to Bounty beach, which is less wide, and has so many resorts and restaurants)
How to reach?
Take a habal habal - it takes 20 minutes from bounty beach. The road is okay, but the last leg is a mud path.

Carnasa Island

Reviewed By Gigia67 - Lombardia

This is an incredible island. Even bigger than Malapascua with such wonderful white sandy Beaches, 2 little lakes, amazing sceneries of cliffs, wild forest ... not to talk about the green ocean.
It even had a wonderful cave, which is worth visiting.
Super snorkeling.
Meet the local people and stroll around the village. They will pamper you.
Such a real pity it is not advertise at all!!!!!
I had the great chance to talk to a guy original from Carnasa working in Malapascua.
He took me there. I was treated like a queen.
The boat ride lasts approx 1 hour by admiring some beautiful Beaches of Malapascua (los Bamboos, Bantigue).
I had a tour of Carnasa both by boat and on foit: extraordinary.
There are so many Islands around Carnasa.
If I knew I would have stayed 1 night there, but be aware there is no restaurant nor hotel. Local people would assist you anyway. They are genuinely marvellous.
We chose fresh fish just fished, our vegetables and his wife cooked everything.
I felt like a member of the family.
Do not miss Carnasa island!!
I would be happy to give you the name of the person who arranged this tour for me. Reliable 100%

Japanese Wreck Marine Sanctuary

Reviewed By Stacy M - Angono, Philippines

Snorkeling wont show much of the wreck. For me, it was too creepy since I get to see a form that is not that clear. Better for divers since they can go deeper and check on the wreck more. But the view on top of the wreck, the sea and the vegetation and the light house is wow!

Langub Beach

Reviewed By Luis S - Bien Hoa, Vietnam

Malapascua has been irregularly labelled as an exclusive diving spot. For this reason, Lanjob Beach (or North Point) is a 350m long slice of paradise. Divers don't go here. Only locals and the few who bother to search for the white sand Beaches bother to visit the place. It is absolutely gorgeous. Lined by palm trees with a few fisherman's huts and a little bar that sells beer for 50PHP. It is also the place to go to get the feeling that you have shared and bathed in some of the best waters in the Cebu region of the Philippines. Since most of the hotels on Malapascua are clustered around the mercado, landing area on the south side, it means that it takes a 30 minute walk (or 10min bike ride) to get to the beach, adding to its exclusivity. once there, you'll forget everything. Loads of sea life - so take a snorkel and you'll be there for hours. Definitely the best beach on Malapascua.
