Ocean Vida Beach Resort in Malapascua Island video review.

Ocean Vida Beach & Dive Resort is located on the beautiful Bounty Beach in Malapascua Island.  The island is located off the northern tip of Cebu in the central part of the Philippines.  They have 12 Sea View Deluxe rooms each with their own private balcony or terrace that overlook or open up to Bounty Beach (depending if you are on the ground floor or 1st level). Their 8 Garden rooms are in a more quiet area in the back of the resort. Rooms come with air conditioning, mini bar, complementary tea and coffee and hot and cold showers. Rooms are modern, spacious and clean and a nice place to stay at.

Ocean Vida has a good restaurant open 7.30 am until 10 pm serving great European and Asian dishes. Eat in at the restaurant or dine on the beach (fantastic in the drier months). For breakfast, they serve it up a buffet style. When I booked with Agoda the room came with a buffet breakfast included. They also list a buffet breakfast included with the room on their website. The resort also puts out bean bags on the beach where you can relax and watch the sunset while chilling with a nice cold beer or cocktail.

For divers, the resort is affiliated with Sea Explorers right next door. Malapascua most famous dive is the Monad Shoal for sighting of the thresher sharks. There are other great dive sites around Malapascua. For more details please check out Sea Explorers website (above).

The resort opened its sister resort in 2015 called Buena Vida Resort and Spa, which is only a few minutes away.

For me, Ocean Vida Resort is one of the top resorts in Malapascua Island. The rooms are good and their sea view rooms have some of the best views on Bounty Beach. I’ve stayed here a couple of times over the years and I’ve really enjoyed my stays there. Good staff, nice food and great place to stay at. It’s located right on Bounty Beach, the most touristy spot on Malapascua. Most of the resorts and restaurants are located here, so everything is within walking distance. Well recommended.

Top Tourist Attractions in Malapascua Island

While diving is a huge draw card to Malapascua, there are plenty of other things to do on the island and you don’t necessarily have to be a diver (like myself). Not only is Bounty Beach a lovely beautiful beach to laze around, there are a number of other smaller less visited beaches dotted around the island. Malapascua is fairly small, so you can walk around and explore the island.  There are some island hopping opportunities to some wonderful gorgeous places like Carnaza and Kalanggman Islands.
