Welcome to Malapascua Island


Malapascua took a direct hit from Typhoon Yolanda, which tore off every roof on the island, but since then locals have been busy repairing the damage. Some displaced villagers now live in tightly packed shanty settlements around the beach hotels in the southern part of the island, where the poverty is all too striking.
