Malapascua Island Overview

Malapascua is a tiny island located across a shallow strait from the northmost tip of mainland Cebu island. Its about 2.5 kilometers long and 1 km wide. It's extraordinary long white beach stretches around the south-east coast of the island facing Cebu, Leyte and Biliran. Malapascua Island is popular to tourists who love to swim and snorkel. This has also become a major dive center (long familiar among the international dive society) because of the thresher sharks that can be seen daily at Monad Shaul (a soft coral habitat). This Island has been noted to be one of the few places where one can have a sight of these harmless sharks at only 23 meters distance downward.
