Malapascua Island, located North of Cebu, is a beautiful island bustling with many local eateries and cuisines. Not too far off Maya Port, a short 40 minutes boat ride will get you anxiously waiting to check-in and start visiting those Thresher Sharks, Malapascua Island is famous for!
In my personal opinion, choosing a dive resort is one of the most crucial step in enjoying your scuba diving holiday. A dive resort affects your holiday in many aspects, ranging from your accommodations, meals, to scuba diving!
To select a dive resort, I always turn to a trustable agent and seek their recommendations! Having been to Malapascua 4 times, I have always returned back to the same one, Evolution Diving and Beach Resort! Here’s some reasons why Evolution Diving and Beach Resort is the dive centre and resort to choose when going to Malapascua!
Firstly, Evolution Diving and Beach Resort is run by Owners Matt and David, two excellent instructors and owners! Preparing for my trip and liaising with them proved little complications, as simple as 1, 2, 3!
Next, would be the accommodations available at Evolution Diving and Beach Resort. Despite having sufficient numbers of rooms with various configurations, remember to book early as they are usually packed with enthusiastic divers!
For budget tourist looking for either a short getaway or just a place comfortable enough to stay, fret not! Evolution Diving and Beach Resort comes with an option for you – The Deluxe Fan Room!
