Sea Explorer is one of the best diving schools on Malapascua. They have very competent instructors and guides, who are able to find the smallest best hidden animals in the water. Also the equipment and the boats are in a very good condition. I had ten dives with them and all were amazing! They don't have the lowest prices, but the quality/price ratio fits. Don't go to the cheaper local dive centers!
Malapascua is the only spot in the world, where you can see the thresher sharks every morning with a nearly 100% guarantee! Don't miss them. These animals are amazing!
Situated directly at the beach beside the Hippocampus Resort, Magellan's has very good food and a very cosy atmosphere. The restaurant is run by an Filipina, who lives for 20 years in Germany. She knows how to make good food!
Cocobana Beach Resort
This resort is run by a swiss guy. Nice clean rooms and very cosy cabanas situated between flowers an palms.
