Beautiful diving spot. The visibility was great, the coral is colourful and healthy and the aquatic life is plentiful. If you could dive at one spot in the Philippines, this should be it!

Takes about 1.5hrs from Malapascua to get here. We took a private boat one way for 3000 pesos and stayed overnight (they rent out tents and huts for 500 and 1000 pesos). Beautiful sunrise from the sandbar.

Yes. You're not the only one and certainly not the first one to visit the island. What did you expect? Had a lovely day trip, with two spectacular wall dives.
