ON THE ROAD | Six Feet Below Malapascua | Lakad Pilipinas

It’s day 14 of my Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao road trip and our second day in Malapascua, an island northeast of mainland Cebu. The clouds have cleared up and the water’s looking fine. We found a boatman that would circle the small island and bring us to some of its numerous snorkeling spots. Being non-divers, we didn’t spot any thresher sharks, which is what the island is really known for, but it was a fun underwater adventure nonetheless.
