Six hours away from the Mactan International Airport, Malapascua is an island in the northern part of Cebu. It’s a very famous diving spot worldwide because of the rare thresher shark. It’s been said that it’s the only place on earth where you can observe thresher sharks on a regular basis. However, the rare sharks should not be the only reason for you to visit the place. Overshadowed by thresher sharks is the equally rare, pristine and unspoiled beaches of the island. Non-divers can enjoy quality time by beach bumming, snorkeling and swimming.
