An overpopulated island with too many tourists and too much litter. There was nothing serene or beautiful about the island. The boat ride there and back to Malapascua Island was too long (about 1.5 hours). A disappointing trip.

The best! I can't even wait to go back. It has the best and clearest water I have ever seen. Don't expect any accommodation. Bring your own tent. But still, the best islet probably in the Philippines.

A great way to spend the day...I went when the weather was fantastic and it was just the best place to visit ...I enjoyed the diving here but I'm not sure that is the best reason to visit this destination.

It took 1:30hrs by boat to get to this island. That trip was really worth. This crystal clear beach is really unforgettable. Amazing!!! We paid 800php(trip fee) + 500php(island tax) to be here. It is worth a visit. My photos are with no filter.

Well, this trip definitely worth it. You can book almost on every corner at Malapascua. It is really nice place, lunch was perfect as was the weather when we have been there :)

The 2.5 hour boat trip out was excellent. The island is pristine, water is exceptionally clear. Great deep wall dive with lots of sealife to include seahorses I've never seen. The dive masters and staff from French Kiss Divers was awesome and were always safe...More

It's better to go to Cebu port and get a taxi to North Terminal and take the bus going to Maya. There you can rent a boat for the whole day to Kalanggaman Island or you can go to Malapascua and to Kalanggaman. The entrance... More
