Malapascua Island

Ice BurnIce Burn PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
Touted as what Boracay was 10 years ago. White sand, blue seas. Excellent diving. Come ons are diving with the thresher sharks and the various WW2 Japanese shipwrecks.

I am planning a trip sometime in December here. Anyone have ideas about rates? And how is the place, for those who have gone there?

    Actually you can...I already done that...Kung 6am ka aalis, makarating ka sa Maya mga 10am...Boat ride is only about 30 mins...depende sa weather...So around 11am nasa Malapascua ka na. Pwede ka doon ka mag lunch...At around 2pm dapat depart ka na for Maya...So maybe around 7pm nasa sa Cebu City ka na...Come to think of it...nagawa ko ring mag day trip sa Boracay (from Iloilo and back in the same day).

    Cebu
  • I want to visit this island. I think it's also touted as a "thinking man's Boracay".
  • one of my groupmates before told me that this is the nicest island he had seen so far. he is white (my groupmate). he said he liked it because it wasn't very commercialized. i didn't know that the island is starting to gain popularity.

    better visit it now habang di pa masyadong exploited.

    gaganda nung pics nya!
  • mga magkano kaya aabutin yung 3-day 2 nights for 2 people? cheap accommodations lang ha, backpackers lang kme eh....

    tnx!

    Wala bang eroplano papunta dito kahit Sea Air or Asian Spirit? Parang ang tagal ng bus ride eh.

    I got these rates from them. To those who have been to Malapascua, do you think the rates are reasonable?

    US$60.00 Aircon Deluxe Room with minbar, satellite cable TV, hot & cold water
    US$40.00 Aircon Room with private bathroom and toilet
    US$24.00 Standard Room with private bathroom and toilet with fan
    Rates per room per nite based on twin or double occupancy

    Dining Rates per person

    US$14.00 Fullboard Meal breakfast, lunch and dinner (excluding drinks)
    US$10.00 Halfboard Meal breakfast and dinner (excluding drinks)
    US$4.00 Breakfast

    Just in case I won't have them arrange for full-board meals, are there any other restaurants around?
