Kabatangan beach

Ultimate guide (April 2024)
Kabatangan is a beach on the east coast of Malapascua island, Philippines. This beach is not very good for swimming. Entry into the water is rocky, while algae can often be met ashore. On the other side, there are coral gardens not far from the coast. So the snorkeling is great. In addition, there are just a few people, and there is a lot of space for pleasant walking along the sea. So the spot is worth a visit. Shore and seabed: stones, sand. [edit]
This beach ranks #4 of the "Best beaches in Malapascua island"

Hotels [edit]

There are almost no hotels near the beach of Kabatangan. However, within a walking distance to the south, you can find many options with rooms' rates starting from US$30 per night.

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.
