This is a quite hidden small island outside of Mactan. I would recommend to plan the boattrip out there in decent time before (we had some challenges getting the right prices when we were at the harbor in Mactan..) The welcoming and friendly staff is really unique and service-minded. The clear water, the beach and the tranquility is worth the...

So here we go. We paid for 4 nights. The place it does looks relaxing at first sight but once you settled on you will realise a few things. No wifi No electricity on daytime No TV Rooms are so basic Toilets are BASIC. If you can get past all that then this is the place for you. The rate...

What a beautiful island, small. Clean cristal clear waters. Staff so helpful and friendly, nothing was to much trouble. This was a special occasion for me, my family and friends and nalusuan island did not disappoint. It was everything I wished for and more.

Went there for a snorkeling trip, when I got the island, the boatman organized the payment for entrance fee. But then I merely stayed on the island for 5mins. And our boat was asked to leave the port. We cant even find a good place to snorkel because the boats are everywhere, and we got nowhere to dock. Just went...

Great area for snorkelling. Was on this island whilst island hopping in the Philippines. Perfect isolated island and plenty of fish to see when snorkelling, despite the small area only allowed for snorkelling. Would definitely recommend!!

I am just back from the island and I'm already missing it. I completely agree with the review from llwkali below: this island is the best kept secret in Cebu. Don't stay in Mactan (too polluted), instead take a boat (40 min) to the Nalusuan Island Marine Resort where you will truly enjoy the best of what the Philippines can...

I selected this place because it has a marine sanctuary and was supposed to have good snorkeling. I had trouble booking as I got no response to online inquiries; eventually I got a response via email and made a reservation for an overwater bungalow. We arranged a pickup as well, flying to Cebu, taking a taxi to Nalusuan Pier and...
