Malapascua

ABOVE THE WATER

Malapascua is an island that lies right in the middle of the Philippines, at the northern tip of Cebu Island in the Visayan Sea.

BELOW THE WATER

One of the biggest attractions of diving here is the resident thresher sharks that swim around the island in the early hours of the morning. This is one of the only places you can reliably get so close to these majestic, ribbon-tailed animals.

You can also see manta rays here as well as the usual charming reef inhabitants, but Malapascua’s other claim to fame is its exceptional macro diving. Here you can find all the odd critters like ghost pipefish, strange shrimp, crabs and nudibranchs, and all sorts of other colourful little creatures. Malapascua is a great destination for underwater photography, and make sure you pack both your wide-angle and macro lenses!

The Dona Marilyn wreck was a cargo ship that sank in the 80’s, and has now become home to all manner of reef life. The wreck lies in 32m of water and is a fantastic day trip from Malapascua.
