Summer in Malapascua Island Cebu

Malapascua Island in Cebu is one of the best diving and vacation spots in the Philippines. Both locals and foreigners fill in to what is known as the home of the thresher sharks every year.

I had a chance to go there together with friends. We spent 2 days in the island. We had an island hopping in the islets surrounding the main island. We enjoyed and had a good time. IT was really a paradise.

I originally wanted to make this post a photo-centric one. But to help others, I added some information about how to get there and a few contact numbers to some resorts in the beachfront. Please see the end of this post.
The island greeted us with summer aura

    1. Hi Fips, not sure till what time yung last trip pero from our experience, around 10 am kami from Malapascua and konti nalang yung bus to Cebu. I think 3 PM yung last boat.
