An interesting place to visit. We visited between diving local sites. Lots of white beach. The island is popular so do not expect to have the place to yourself. One side of the island is exposed to the weather but the other side is sheltered...More

Best for a group of friends, no overnight. Therefore, have to go early to enjoy the beach. 30 minutes to 1-hour boat drive from the pier.

Beautiful diving spot. The visibility was great, the coral is colourful and healthy and the aquatic life is plentiful. If you could dive at one spot in the Philippines, this should be it!

Takes about 1.5hrs from Malapascua to get here. We took a private boat one way for 3000 pesos and stayed overnight (they rent out tents and huts for 500 and 1000 pesos). Beautiful sunrise from the sandbar.

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
