One of the best beaches I've been to. The island was brought by Henan Resort but no constructions yet. I'm so lucky to be here before it becomes private and I am pretty sure the nightly rate per night would be out of reach for ordinary people. This is a place to relax and just lay on the beach.

Most beautiful beach in Philippines. White-pink sand, crystal water very nice for pictures. Not crowed, clean, turquoise and warm water, big and quiet beach worth to visit few hours.

i'd say average because farther out it get rocky and weedy and personal facility is very limited. it's only my opinion others may not agree.

This is one of the best (easy accessable) beaches we visited in our 3 weeks in Philippines. White sand, crystal water. Palm trees for shadow and fresh coconuts for 50p. Also good for snorkeling, we saw a baby shark.

Longish baot trip...around 1 hour. But it is a good trip if the weather is fine. Spectacular view of cliffs on the island you bypass. Beach is white sand and shalliw qater suitable for families to swim. No live coral as such but a bit where the boats moor. Short walk to white sandy beach..coconut trees...shelter for eating. Nice place... More

We got to Malcapuya Island as part of the island hopping tour. It was the last island we visited. Malcapuya Island has a stretch of white clean sandy beach. It is unspoilt and not crowded at all. As it isn't crowded, one can get to enjoy the serenity the island has to offer. I like the fact that there are... More

We had a bountiful lunch prepared by our guide on this island. We then relaxed, floating on this gorgeous beach! The water was fantastic!

Malcapuya island may be best if the waves are not that strong. The island is yet to be developed. It's good for relaxation with friends. Not a a good place for snorkeling though.
