We are very centrally located on Malapascua. If you come by yourself and arrive at the beach by public boat, you will probably land on Logon beach near the Italian Restaurant. You can ask anyone where we are, or go to the right onto Bounty Beach, about 30 meters to the right. Blue Coral is the big resort on the cliffs to the right of the beach as you face the sea. We are 20m down the beach, the first big building you come to. Even if you are not diving or staying with us, feel free to leave your bags with us while you find a room. We are always happy to help travelers with information about the island and show you around the various resorts.
