  • I loved this place, the water is crystal clear, beach is clean and well kept. I hope it stays that way. Travel time to this place is long but just enjoy the view of the ocean  more »
  • By far and away my favorite island in this area. White beach, great swimming and snorkeling, and even a couple of small vendors. Don’t miss it. It’s straight up paradise.  more »
  • If you get sea sick a lot. Think twice. Or drink a medicine. It was an hour and a half bumpy boat ride. Mind you, it's summer and yet the waves are big. The island is beautiful. The sand from the top ...  more »

  • I stayed the night and was the only guest. Happy I received an invitation!! I can't wait to go back. My afternoon/night and morning all alone on the beach was pure magic
  • Malcapuya Island is one of the bigger and more populous islands in the area, sighting many more locals, adorning a beautiful white-sand beach all while being preserved delicately and a haven to swim in with slightly formidable waves. There's also a basketball court, and plenty of docking area which is hidden from view as it's on a different side of the island. A small walk alleviates as such.
  • Dream island hide away, excellent place for diving snorkelling and white sand beach swimming. Kayak around the island in around 40 min. Would love to come back here and stay overnight or stay forever! Describe a heavenly Island in one word, MALCAPUYA!
  • Best for beach scenery, sun tanning and snorkeling (you can see beautiful corals and fishes)
  • Part of a island hopping tour from Coron, stunning views, clear blue water, in short: fantastic and highly recommended to visit!
