Kalanggaman Islet, Malapascua Island

4.3
#3 of 65 in Parks in Cebu Island
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.

  • Day nice snorkeling, barbecue and meal on the beach, a beautiful island after an hour and a half drive only

  • Absolutely gorgeous, but also sometimes very rubbishy as on the other islands of the Philippines. The water and the beach however are the most beautiful I've ever seen. We were in the off season there and there were very many boats on site at this time. Probably very crowded in high season. How to get there (lunch included) costs approx. 700 PHP + to 500 PHP access fee to the island.

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.
