Thresher Cove Dive Resort Video Review
Thresher Cove Dive Resort in Malapascua Island, Cebu is 10 roomed resort. It has its dive centre, swimming pool, restaurant and private beach front.
The resort gets it name from the Thresher sharks in the area. Malapascua Island came to fame in the diving world as it one of the best places to dive and see these sharks. Although this is the most famous dives there are plenty of other dive sites in the are to see other marine life such as manta rays, reef sharks and depending on the time of year – hammer-heads. There’s also wreck dives as well. Please check the resort’s website for more. You don’t necessarily have to be a diver either, like myself, as there are lots of other things to do on the island. You can check out my video below for more ideas on some great things to do in Malapascua Island.
Thresher Cove Dive Resort is bit away from the main tourist drag of Bounty Beach, although it is only a short motorbike ride. These are easy to organise as the drivers wait at the resort’s entrance. This makes the resort a bit more secluded and peaceful. The resort’s restaurant isn’t too bad either, if you want more choice with restaurants in Malapascua just catch one of the motorbikes to Bounty Beach. In the video I’ve shown the restaurant’s menu. They serve Asian dishes as well as a range of European dishes. When I booked via Agoda they included a breakfast with the room rates. Just check the conditions when you book.
I only stayed in one of their Deluxe Rooms which was nice, clean and modern. The rooms were a decent size complete with mini bar, air conditioning, safe, satellite TV. The showers had hot and cold water. They had a little verandah that you could sit outside at.For cheaper rooms they have the shared dorm rooms or for something more spacious they have their Captains Villa (60sqm). Check out their website for more.
Overall I enjoyed my stay here, it’s a beautiful spot in Malapascua and a decent place to stay. As in my video I would rate Thresher Cove Dive Resort as above average.
