Away from the masses, you'll have a wonderful stay in one of our ten cottages. Enjoy a great dinner in our restaurant or have a drink on our terrace with its magnificent view of Pescador Island.

We had 8 nights there as a base to dive Moalboal and do the Oslob Whaleshark day trip following a week on a Liveaboard out on Tubbataha. If you are a diver looking to do the ‘macro stuff’ at Moalboal you need to seriously consider Magic Island. The dive operation and guides

This resort has been extremely well thought out and managed. The size and layout mean that you barely need to walk more than a minute or two, to get to the bar, dive centre or restaurant. The staff treat you like friends, yet at the same time are courteous and efficient. Rooms

Thank you for your review and feed back. We are all very pleased you enjoyed tour stay here at Magic Island. Yes the road trip from Cebu is defiantly not the best part of the the journey to get here. We are hope full in the future that there will be other options, like a sea plain. Kind regards The Magic Island Team

Last two weeks we had an amazing stay at Magic Island Dive Resort! Cozy and relaxing place which is well hidden! Because of the 10 cabins it is a very peacefull place and therefore also personal! With stunning views over the ocean. Quality above quantity! As begginers in diving

Loved the bed!!
Picture of bungalow #1 -- plenty of room
Yes but I don’t know the cost - everything else is very reasonable so I assume that is as well.

not too far but a taxi or motorcycle taxi needed one of the girls that works there her father has a motorcycle taxi that is good to take you out not sure about evenings though probably have to book a car very narrow road rough in some places so wouldn't recomend walking

We had a 10 dive package, but I have a quote for a single shore/boat dive of PHP 2,750 which equates to about £40. Obviously, the more dives in you package, the cheaper it becomes. If you have to hire equipment, that is an extra

Phillipines only accept PHP...... So other currencies are no good. There is an ATM at the airport.....I suggest you get money from there, as although there are ATMs in Moalboal, they are not too reliable, and only one will accept foreign cards However, if you contact Magic Island, they will be more than happy to advise your best course of action Hope this helps

"views from any room"
"My brother and I shared a room that was just right. There was a view of the bay from the baloney."
"Rooms nearer the ocean are subject to some early morning boat traffic noise"
"Spend the extra money and get bungalow #1 closest to the water."
"i love chalet number 1 as its looking down over the sea wall"
US$145 - US$150 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
