Work getting you down? Politics grinding your gears? The bland weather back home not quite satisfying you? Well if you’re in need of a tropical get away, here’s some reasons why Malapascua should be a top contender!
The sheer beauty of this sandy, little tropical island cannot disappoint. With beautiful white sandy beaches and sheltered small bays (which you can sometimes have all to yourself), it all makes for a perfect beach holiday. For the majority of the year the water is the crystal clear kind you see on postcards, with palm trees, cliffs and a serene atmosphere you want for a relaxing holiday. In short, Malapascua has it all.
The locals totally make the island what it is. The smiley, cheeky locals make Malapascua a welcoming and never boring place. Always happy to help, have a beer or get their Videoke on, you can only have love for the people that live here. Besides being a particularly quiet island for a majority of the time, Saturday is when you can see a basketball court by day, turn in to a disco at night, and that’s where it all hits the fan 😉
It goes without saying that the diving on Malapascua is a big attraction of the island, with sites ranging in suitability from complete novices, all the way up to the most hardcore technical divers. Many local dive sites within just a 15 minute boat ride from Evolution will satisfy any cravings for soft corals, and many sites being a heaven for macro lovers. Day trips to other locations can tick boxes for the wall dive enthusiasts at Kalanggaman island, wreck divers to a particular favourite at the Doña Marilyn, or for a non-stop jaw dropping dive at Gato Island which even has a 45m long tunnel for advanced divers. Oh, and how can we forget these guys…
One of the only places you get a chance to see the Pelagic Thresher Shark on a near enough daily basis just a 25 minute boat ride from Evolution’s doorstep. Am I missing anything?
