Straight off Exotic Beach the sea gradually increases to a depth of 12mts, revealing healthy coral formations and creating a safe and exciting place to swim and snorkel.

Our family run resort prides itself on keeping a relaxed yet professional atmosphere where we hope to provide all our guests with a magical holiday experience. We should always be your first choice on Malapascua.

The blinding white sands of Bounty Beach fringe the southern side of Malapascua and have been called one of the best beaches in the Philippines. It is a paradise where time has stood still, leaving you breathless as soon as you step onto this island dream. The clear turquoise waters create a perfect contrast to the lush mountainous views created by northern Cebu, southern Leyte and even the volcanic islands of Maripipi.

The northern side of Malapascua has a more panoramic rocky coastline and is an attractive alternative to the ever-popular white sand beach. Malapascua also called Logon by the elder locals is located 8km north east of Cebu mainland and 25km west of Leyte. Everyday seems to be a holiday on Malapascua; it’s a place far away from mass tourism and large beachfront hotels. Even the locals appear to be in a constant state of relaxation, the perfect place to escape from the rush of daily life.

The island interior is filled with lush tropical flora with an array of colourful flowers found growing amongst the ever-present palm trees. A network of sandy paths intersperse the island taking you from sleepy fishing villages to idyllic deserted bays. There is always a friendly local willing to show you around or point you in the right direction. The ‘hike’ to the lighthouse is a must, with its spectacular views. A walk around the entire island will take approximately 2 hours and is the perfect way to meet the friendly local people.

Exotic is the pioneer dive resort on Malapascua, established in 1998 Exotic has grown over the years and now is the largest all-inclusive dive resort on the island. Our continued expansion is a result of our customer’s loyalty and desire to revisit and share their Exotic experience with others. Why not come and see what it is that brings people back to us year after year.
