“Time does not improve!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

First visited 7 years ago ... beautiful, unspoilt fishing village.
Second visit 5 years ago .... same bay but the fisher mens' housing and boat building is being pushed aside for development.
Third visit 3 years ago.... same bay but now just surrounded by big hotels with expensive bars. One even had a huge TV screen on the beach. No-one was watching it !
Next visit .... we won't be going again .... the developers have spoilt it for us. We will find another unspoilt paradise somewhere.

“Potential for a beautiful beach”
Reviewed 10 April 2014 via mobile

The beach and location is breath taking the only detractant is the amount of rubbish and plastic on this beach! As a sheltered bay it does tend to capture and retain a lot of rubbish!

“My favourite beach in the Philippines”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

I have been to Malapascua Island 5 times.

Logon beach is where I prefer to stay.

Logon beach is part of a cove with coconut trees, white sand beach and many bangka boats (outrigger boats) on the water and on the sand.

The main town also fronts Logon Beach. There is talk of building a pier, close to the town, on Logon beach for the boats to dock at but nothing is happening just yet.

So for the moment,

At high tide, you have to walk the plank to get on and off the big bangka boats. Mostly you will walk onto and off the plank from the sand but sometimes into the water at the edge of the sand. So don't be wearing expensive shoes.

At low tide, when departing Malapascua, you have to catch a small boat from near the ticket booth on Logon beach to get to the big bangka boat for the trip to Maya on mainland Cebu. In September, this cost an extra P20 per person, paid directly to the boatman.

At low tide, when arriving at Malapascua, you have to transfer to a small boat to take you to the beach at Logon Beach. Presumably, the boatman charge P20 for this service.

In Maya, at low tide you also have to use the small boats. When I first did a low tide trip in 2003, I asked the boatman how to get onto the big bangka boat. He said ...JUMP. My suggestion is that you travel light in case you have to jump too.

Mousehunt mentioned that they repair boats on the sand. Yes they do. It doesn't detract from anything in my opinion.

Logon Beach is the location of the Maldito Bar. Maldito means "naughty" in the local language of Bisaya. I enjoy sitting at a table in Maldito in the daytime, drinking cocktails and watching the world go by. The view is exactly what you would expect if you were watching a movie about a tropical island.

“Best sunsets on the island!”
Reviewed 21 June 2013 via mobile

Make sure you watch the sunset from this side, lots of boats, children, a nice cove, and a stretch of beach to photograph!

“Average beach”
Reviewed 12 March 2013

This is where you will disembark when you reach Malapascua.

The beach is pretty dirtied with sea debris. There are also many boats on the beach that is either being repaired, newly build or maintain.

There are fewer resorts here so maybe no one bothered actually to clean up the beach.
