The Legend of Malalison Island
Once upon a time, there was a boy misunderstood by many just because he does things in his own way, his own purpose, his own time.
His mother was too proud to take notice. His younger sister was too pompous to care, and his older brother was too busy loved by all that he remained alone.
Malalison, the disobedient one.
But no one knew who he truly was…
One day the gods decided to turn his family into islands to separate them.
He never had the chance to show people who he really is…

Malalison Island is a 20 mins. boat ride from the main town of Culasi. The pristine island is inhabited by mostly locals without any big resorts or buildings. The island offers homestay for those who wants to stay overnight or they can also use their own tent. Malalison is a perfect place to unwind and relax away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Aside from swimming in its crystal clear water, one can enjoy trekking on the hills of Malalison. The view in Malalison is similar to Batanes. I can say that this little island is the mini-Batanes of Panay.
