Hippocampus Beach and Dive Resort


The resort is located directly on Malapascua’s white Bounty beach and offers a family style and relaxed atmosphere. Altogether 18 rooms have been integrated into a natural tropical garden with many coconut and various flowering trees, ferns and orchids. Superior and deluxe rooms are equipped with aircon, hot shower and minibar/fridge, the deluxe rooms have a prime beachfront location with undisturbed views of the turquoise blue sea. Furnishing is in colonial style and includes a spacious double bed or alternatively two single beds. Also available are several economy rooms, they are simple with electric fan only, but still have a private bath, verandah and direct access to the beach.

A newly installed communal power net or our own noise proof generators supply electricity around the clock, voltage is 220 volts and rooms have philippine and european power outlets. Hippocampus uses its own small waterworks in the island interior which supplies almost drinking water quality (not self-evident on Malapascua!).

WiFi internet access is available for guests without charge.

Environmental and Nature Protection

Hippocampus plays an active role in a conservation project initiated in 2009, which aims at protecting important dive sites and underwater sanctuaries by armed patrol boats. Since May 2010 daily patrol runs are carried out and very encouraging results are already visible now. Hopefully illegal fishing activities can be completely eliminated. A key success element is also a better education of the local communities.
In several aviaries in the resort philippine birds are kept and bred, including the endangered nicobar pidgeons (Hippocampus is also a registered wildlife farm).
