This is the final post on the [Bantayan+Malapascua] Series and Malapascua is such a nice place for enjoying beach and nature. In this final post, I would leave you with some visual ideas on what to do here in the charming island of Malapascua. I'm starting to miss this place everytime I look at the photos. Enjoy and share this post with your friends special those planning to go to Malapascua this summer!
Malapascua Island is small (similar to Boracay) that you can have a boat trip around the island for P600 for the 2-3 hour trip. They rent goggles for P100 each which you could use for snorkeling in nice coral reefs and the Japanese shipwreck :!
There is no nightlife on this island on weekdays and occasionally only high-peak season weekends. But this is the hang out place to be at night @ the Sunsplash Bar behind Cocobana Resort. Cool ambiance :) This is also the place for Still Standing at 15 shots! When we left Philippines was in the no. 4 spot :)
This is a must! Filipino style Hilot Massage for P250 :) It is soo good that I always keep on wondering why would I go for shiatsu or swedish when we have our own unique Hilot massage that you would keep coming back for more. They use coconut oil which would be ideal for sun bathing after the massage :)
The best part is swimming to your hearts content! It's like having a huge swimming pool since the water is clean, calm and with fishes to see. Although the corals were not taken cared of well so most of them are dead those in front of the main beach.
Order milkshake here at Blue Waters resort in this famous Sari-Sari Store format bar :) By the way, they accept credit card but with 10% surcharge :) Only a few resorts (Blue Corals also) in the island accept credit card, so bring cash! My estimate is P1,500/day on average :)
