by Kwak Minjun Web Designer

Malapascua is a tiny island and you could walk around this 1km wide and 2.5km long island in about two hours. It has bounced back from the damage caused by the typhoon Yolanda and welcomes tourists with open arms. The main touristy area is concentrated around Bounty Beach, where the ferry drops you off. It may be a small place but it has lots to offer. All the hotels and resorts in the island are focussed on maintaining the beauty of Malapascua and highlighting the fact that the island is the best dive spot in the Philippines.
