Beautiful little island!!! I went to visit the island (islet) on a day trip with a boat. I arrived maybe hour and a half before noon and had very nice time on the beach of this beautiful island!

When I arrived in Malapascua we immediately decided to go on a boat trip to Kalanggaaman the day after because I saw some pictures on the Web and I was really curious to experience a desert island in the middle of nowhere. It was definitely worth going there, I hardly find the words to describe such a breathtaking island. The... More

An overpopulated island with too many tourists and too much litter. There was nothing serene or beautiful about the island. The boat ride there and back to Malapascua Island was too long (about 1.5 hours). A disappointing trip.

If you think the beaches in Boracay are excellent, then you will find Kalanggaman more than excellent.

I've been to many of places in the Philippines and this island is definitely among the best. The crystal clear water, the sea breeze and its cooling effect, the romantic ambiance and the people- this is the place I've been looking for! Definitely, it is a breathtaking paradise! It made me meditate well and understand my purpose while reflecting God's... More

The best! I can't even wait to go back. It has the best and clearest water I have ever seen. Don't expect any accommodation. Bring your own tent. But still, the best islet probably in the Philippines.

A great way to spend the day...I went when the weather was fantastic and it was just the best place to visit ...I enjoyed the diving here but I'm not sure that is the best reason to visit this destination.

It took 1:30hrs by boat to get to this island. That trip was really worth. This crystal clear beach is really unforgettable. Amazing!!! We paid 800php(trip fee) + 500php(island tax) to be here. It is worth a visit. My photos are with no filter.

Well, this trip definitely worth it. You can book almost on every corner at Malapascua. It is really nice place, lunch was perfect as was the weather when we have been there :)
