“The most beautiful beach we saw in Malapascua”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Guimbatayan beach was our last stop during the island tour (by habal habal!)

It is very beautiful - pure white sand, clean, powdery, wide beach - and it is really long - must be about a kilometer long.

There is a resort at the northern end, if you feel like eating something. We stayed for nearly 2 hours here - just walking, playing in the sand, building castles, writing names, jumping for wacky shots, scenic photos (the water is amazingly blue!) and relaxing.

We waited to see the sunset - it is not a pure sunset in the water, but rather behind the trees.

On the whole, I would highly recommend coming here. (The beach is a good contrast to Bounty beach, which is less wide, and has so many resorts and restaurants)

How to reach?
Take a habal habal - it takes 20 minutes from bounty beach. The road is okay, but the last leg is a mud path.
