Malapascua Cebu is the place that you want to go for relaxing and disconnect. We already wrote that there are many things to do in Malapascua and we will show you how beautiful are the beaches in Malapascua in this blog post.
BEST TIME TO VISIT MALAPASCUA
Planning a trip to Cebu also means taking note of when the sunniest and warmest days are in the island. After all, no one wants to explore the beach with heavy rain, right? Luckily, Cebu only has 2 seasons: wet and dry. As a tropical country, the Philippines’ summer months are hot and humid while its rainy season is cool and wet.
The warmest months of the year in Cebu are May to October, so it’s the best time to visit Malapascua. Since Malapascua Island is in the province’s northern tip, visitors can expect more rainfall than its southern region. June to December is the wet season but you should only expect occasional rainfall during this time.
BEACHES IN MALAPASCUA
BEST BEACH IN MALAPASCUA
1. LANGOB BEACH
Langob Beach is our favorite in this list of beaches in Malapascua. It’s located at the North part of the island and it’s very quiet and peaceful. If you decide to take a walk to Langob Beach, you will see gorgeous palm trees and a breathtaking 360 view.
Even the town where locals live was a sight to behold. You can also take a habal-habal from the port to the beach for around 50 PHP per person. Since there are not many places to stay around that area you will find paradise!
