  • I'm reviewing the lighthouse not the beaches or the island. It's just a modern lighthouse on top of a hill. There is a very small rickety track very unsteady underfoot so be carful. When you get to th...  more »

  • It's very hard to find but the locals will help guide you there. I liked it but it's not really something super spectacular. It was nice and quiet when I was there and that's what I needed at that point.
  • The trail leading to the light house is hidden thru the backyard of the villagers houses. There's a small sign board that's easy to miss, so ask the locals for directions. Would suggest wearing shoes too since the trek up is slippery and thru a forested path.
  • Trek through the bushes towards it is unpleasant. Can't enter it and climb on top. Not worth the trip.
  • Nice overlooking view, but hard to find. One has to pass a private small property to get there. The tower is padlocked. No food or drinks available.
  • Finding the road heading up to the lighthouse is a bit tricky. There's a fence before going to the small trail leading to it. It''s a bit of a hike, but the sunset view from that point is amazing.

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.
