Resort Description

Blue Corals Beach Resort offers atmospheric beachfront accommodation in Malapascua, Philippines. 

Based in the coral triangle, dive sites in this region include coral gardens, walls, caves, wrecks and muck diving locations. Dive into the water and you’ll have a chance to see pygmy seahorses, cuttlefish, crustaceans, rays, large rays and all types of colourful reef fish. Thresher and whitetip reef sharks are sighted year-round. 

The resort is located on a fine white sand beach and includes a pool surrounded by lawns, tropical trees and sun loungers. Pale blue, double and single storey buildings and traditional thatched-roof bungalows make up the guest accomodations. 

Blue Corals Bar is located at the end of a sandy-floored rocky outcrop with colourful flags, cushioned wooden benches, atmospheric candles and fairy lights and sunset views over the ocean. Happy hour is between 3 and 7pm.

Climate controlled and open-air restaurants serve international and local breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Best dive sites in Malapascua

Monad Shoal – This submerged sea mount is Malapascua’s most famous dive site and the best spot for thresher sharks sightings. Diving here is either a “swimming dive” or on a stationary line waiting for the sharks to approach. Close encounters with these incredible predators are not unusual. It’s a thrilling experience and a must-do if visiting the Philippines to dive. Gato Island – This marine reserve and sea snake sanctuary offers a huge diversity of marine life. You’ll find stunning corals, swim throughs and rock formations, abundant fish life and a plethora of critters. Look out for schooling fish and cruising reef sharks. It’s a beautiful dive and every dive here is different. Lapus Lapus – Offering arguably the best coral in Malapascua, this is a kaleidoscopic site which always impresses. You can find frogfish, mantis shrimp, scorpionfish, cuttlefish and octopus on the reef. Macro critters hide out in the shallow water soft coral garden and there is an excellent variety of reef fish. Butong Bato – This underwater pinnacle site is located close to Malapascua and is home to a large school of resident batfish. Corals here are healthy, vibrant and varied. Macro photographers will enjoy the nudibranch species and tiny crustaceans including zebra crabs and whip coral shrimps. Chocolate Island – An absolute must for macro photographers. Chocolate Island is a critter haven and regular sightings include flamboyant cuttlefish, Pegasus seamoths, nudibranch, flatworms, octopus, cowries and a host of shrimps and crustaceans.

What to see

The biggest draw to Malapascua is the year round thresher shark sightings. Other pelagics and predatory species include reef sharks, tuna, barracuda, trevally, jacks and sea snakes. Don’t forget to bring your macro lenses and look out for nudibranch, frogfish, flatworms, pygmy seahorses, seamoths, cuttlefish (including flamboyant), octopus and all manner of miniature crustaceans.
