  • Malapascua Island is situated two and a half hours away by car and four hours away by bus from the city of Cebu. A barangay of the town of Daanbantayan, Malapascua Island takes pride in its world-class diving spots and pristine white sand beaches. It is widely referred by locals as the “Boracay of Cebu.”


    As a diving destination, Malapascua Island has become known for its beautiful coral gardens and excellent local dive spots, as well as further out sites like Gato Island, Monad Shoal, and Kemod Shoal. Monad Shoal is an underwater plateau where thresher sharks and manta rays can be seen on a regular basis.


    The town’s name is derived from two Spanish words, “mal” and “pascua”, which translated in English means, “bad” and “Easter” or bad Christmas. According to locals, the Spaniards named the island that way after they arrived there on a stormy Christmas.

    Malapascua Island is a promise of a great dive and a relaxing beach experience, making it a popular travel destination for local and foreign tourists alike.


    Apart from the wondrous natural beauty of Malapascua Island, Malapascua Legend aims to provide guests with the convenience and the best of leisure time through their modern amenities. The two room categories they offer are the Presidential Suite for P7,000 and Super Deluxe for P5,000. All rooms are equipped with mini bars, lcd televisions, comfortable beddings and pillows, inclusive of breakfast for two and with a maximum capacity of four persons.

    They offer free WIFI access for guests, and their elegantly designed swimming pool is the biggest in Malapascua Island. Malapascua Legend also operates the Pirates’ Resto Bar, which offers a variety of dishes from local to exotic cuisines which will please your senses.
