Besides the diving spots, beautiful corals, and diverse marine life, Malapascua Island is also known for its white-sand beaches! And so it is but a must to visit one if you travel here.
During our trip to Malapascua Island last February 2022 for our Valentine's celebration, @ybanezkim26 suggested we head to Langob Beach to watch and enjoy the sunset. And glad we just did that! If I can remember it well, we went here on our 3rd day. Initially, we planned to leave the New Villa Sandra Guesthouse by 2:00 pm but the sun was still casting its scorching heat and so we worked for the time being and finally left the guesthouse by 3:30 pm.
Getting there requires one to ride a habal-habal or you can rent out a motorbike. As for us, I already booked 2 habal-habal drivers that morning. It just costs $2 for a back and forth ride. Might share next what it's like driving around Malapascua in a habal-habal and show the conditions of the place. The driver took us to a private place just next to D' Avila's Horizon Resort but it seems like the ones living there were ok for people to pass by to get to the beach.
Once we got to the beachfront, I was simply amazed at how serene the place was. Although the sun was already setting, one can tell that the sand was fine and white. The beach stretched a few kilometers wide and so one would enjoy some leisure time and a stroll here. The twin islets where we were freediving that morning are seen from the beach shore. On the far right, the beach ends with a cliff. And on the left side was where the sun was slowly setting creating a silhouette with the hills and coconut trees. And the sky was just filled with blue and orange hues.
Powerful was the one word I can describe the sea in front of us. Even the waves were a bit strong bringing about the strong winds passing by. And yet the sound of the waves and the chirping of the birds in the background was just music to the ears so I made sure you would hear it by the end of the video too.
The beach was barely crowded. Some tourists were eating at a nearby table where locals were selling their goods but that was just about it. Felt like we had the whole beach to ourselves. As much as I want to go for a swim, the waves and the birds chirping in the back were a bit strong and so I preferred to sit on the sand and took in all the beauty in front of me and took some videos.
And when night already covered the skies and the winds were even stronger now, we went inside D' Avila's Horizon Resort (which was the only resort you can stay here up north of Malapascua) and had a sumptuous dinner. We were then picked up by our habal-habal drivers around 8:00 pm.
Heading to this sweet spot in Malapascua was all worth it and you should too! For the mean time, enjoy this video of this beautiful Langob Beach!
