Just a ten-minute boat ride from the popular tourist site of Sugba Lagoon and forty-five minutes from the port of Del Carmen, lies Megancub Island with its small fishing village.
Our organized island tour can take you to an getaway islet inhabited solely by fishermen and their families.
Most of them are only occupied with drying and selling fish, that is probably why this remains a peaceful outpost yet again one bustling with activity.
You can circle the whole island by boat in an hour or so, but there are many tempting stops to prolong your trip.
A handful of caves can be visited and explored easily from the same beach. Many of the caves are also home to the swiftlets whose nests are so prized in Chinese cuisine.
Colorful legends surrounding these caves involving treasure, pirates, war-time activities and spirits. Yet these days the caves make for a sturdy shelter during a typhoon.
After going through a few caves a stop at a beach is very welcome and the two best beaches are on the west coast of Megancub island.
While there are not many visitors here, there’s an abundance of tranquillity.
Most noteworthy of all is also talk of reintroducing the Red-vented cockatoo (Cacatua haematuropygia) from a population in Palawan.
Looking to the west you can see the white sands of Cowhagen (Kauhagen)Island just to the north of Caob. This white beach is a great place to grill the fresh seafood bought from the local fishermen. Consequently, Dinagat Island can clearly be seen in the background.
As a result, the small and sparsely populated Megancub Island remains one of our favourite spots.
All due to its quiet clean beaches, friendly and industrious residents, and an easy-going lifestyle.
In conclusion, we’d be happy to arrange a organized island tour of Megancub, the caves, the beaches with a seafood barbecue just for you.
