Malupascua, The Philippines

Threasher Shark

A flight to Cebu. 3 hour drive to the port of Maya. A midnight sail in a outrigger boat by moonlight…. But where else in the world can you wake up at 4.30am to dive with thresher sharks?

Everything else is classic Philippines; San Miguel, cockerels, dogs, Bruno Mars ringtones, hammocks, an annual village barrio fiesta, Tanduay rum.

What makes Malupascua extra special is that it’s still defined by the above, and not it’s near devastation in typhoon Yolanda only 6 months ago. Support it with your tourist dollars, it’s an amazing place.

Where we stayed: The family run Aabana Beach Gorgeous beach bungalows with breakfast served on your own huge veranda. It’s also right next door to the best dive school on the island: Evolution Where we ate: The amazing Angelina Italian and inland budget shack JinJins.

Connecting to %s : The Anantasin is the name of a shipwreck just of the coast of the Sensi Parasise, Mae Haad Bay, Koh Tao, Thailand. It’s one of my many favorite places.

Lit.tle: Just because it’s cute.
