Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Step foot on your very own slice of desert island paradise at Kalanggaman Islet, a remote spot off the coast of Palompon. Take a boat tour from one of the larger neighboring islands, skimming across deep cerulean seas until you reach shores lined with coconut trees and soft white sand. Swimming, scuba diving, and kayaking--try them all before heading to one of two elegant sandbars, reaching out into the sea from either end of the island. Camping is permitted on the island, so bring your own tent or rent one of the small beach huts. The island has no stores, so bring your own supplies, unless visiting with a tour group. Take a look at our Malapascua Island vacation planner to schedule your visit to Kalanggaman Islet and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

Where to stay in Malapascua Island

Small Malapascua Island has a number of resorts, hotels, guesthouses, eco-lodges, and rental accommodations to cater to the long list of divers, beach-lovers, and luxury tourists who arrive here each year. The south coast of the island, where Bounty Beach and the ferry service are located, serves as the most popular area to stay. Resorts great and small, squat hotels, and sets of thatched rental cottages sit by the sand or along the streets just back from it. A couple of budget inns offer no-nonsense accommodations for those more interested in just getting out there and exploring.
