MALAPASCUA - A SHARK'S STUNNING TALE
Thresher sharks, frogfish, white tip reef sharks, octopi, sea snakes, cuttlefish and more, are the reasons why Malapascua has become a famous dive destination since the early 90s. This island off the northern coast of Cebu in the Philippines excludes serenity.
The number one dive site is Monad Shoal, a natural cleaning station for fish where thresher sharks are seen on a daily basis just before sunrise. Choose between Gato Island or Kalanggaman Island. You can't go wrong.
This world-class diving destination isn't just renowned for its marine life, visiting the amazing structures and swim-throughs to shipwrecks like Dona Marilyn at Gato Island, are every bit as memorable.
In addition to that, the nearby Chocolate Island is home to flatworms. If you time your visit just right, you may be fortunate enough to witness their stunningly beautiful mating ritual.
