Bounty beach

Ultimate guide (May 2024)
Bounty is a popular beach in the southwest of Malapascua island, Philippines. This is the most controversial beach on the island. There are nice areas with palms, but there are also many ugly buildings. Boats are almost everywhere, so swimming is not very comfortable here. During the low tide, sea water is too shallow. But the place becomes very crowded during the high tide. Probably, it is worth to get here for the bars and for diving hangouts. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]

Hotels [edit]

Rooms' fares in the hotels of Bounty Beach range from US$30 to US$150 per night. Most options are quite basic. There are also few decent accommodation options, but these are overpriced.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Cebu international airport (CEB).

Then take a taxi to the Maya town located in the north of Cebu island. The cost of the trip is about US$50 per car. You can save if you get to Maya by bus or by shuttle minibus, but the journey will be very hard.

From the main Maya pier to Malapascua island, there are frequent boats (so-called bankas) operating from early morning until 4 pm. It takes 30 minutes per way. If you arrived at the pier after 4 pm, it is better not to pay immediately US$30 for a private boat, but try to find a shared boat for about US$6 per person, - or just spend the night somewhere in the hotel near the pier.

When to go [edit]

You can relax all year round on the island of Malapascua. Probably, the rainy season from June to October is not the best time, but anyway there are many days with good weather.
