This small island is very nice, a perfect white beach with cristal clear blue water. If you get the chance to spend some time there go for it!

Best for a group of friends, no overnight. Therefore, have to go early to enjoy the beach. 30 minutes to 1-hour boat drive from the pier.

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.
