The translucent swathes of the ocean are always a sight to see!
As a group of people residing in an island that is surrounded by gorgeous beaches, it is never a bore to have the view of the vast clear ocean before you. In Lapu-Lapu, there is a tiny speck of land in the map that holds these Maldives-like crystalline waters. You do not need to catch a flight anywhere else to get a taste of what the waters in paradise are like.
Let us find out what makes the island so mesmerizing!
Take a dip in the immersive seawater
Mundo Island’s azure waters that seem to sparkle underneath the sunlight is surely something you would feel blessed to see.
To get a better view of the area that swallows you, big rocks all over ocean floor that peek out of the water can be sat on, in case you need a break to take in the sight before you, or to have a Little Mermaid-esque photoshoot that can grace your summer Instagram feed.
The area is private and does not hold any sort of public commotions like most beaches do, so expect to see clean sand underneath and keep it that way until you leave so others can also witness the beautiful ocean floor below.
The island gracefully gives you a glimpse of what you are about to dive into, and it needs to remain that way so as to give other wavy babes their fair share of ocean eye-candy.
The city along the horizon
It is not only the waters below that can pull you, but also the views along the skyline from afar.
While you enjoy getting submerged in the gorgeous transparent waters, the cityscape before you will entice you as well.
Not to mention, boats also pass by the island often so you can catch them and maybe give a little wave, or take scenic pictures with them in the background for that tropical aesthetic.
What are you waiting for? Ready your beach sandals and see this for yourself!

BY CAR: Navigate with Waze or Google Maps and set your destination to “Macario Beach” in Maribago, Lapu-Lapu City.
Most beach goers crossing from Macario Beach or coming from any other beach access going to the Island are mostly leaving there garbage, it’s either on the sides of the island or in the waters. Not to mention the broken alcoholic drinks especially when people are drunk. The island is private property so when they cross there with no permission from the owner you can only stay on the sides of the island and when the tide is high it is hard to cross back to the mainland. Current is very strong in the island and every year an average of 30 people got drowned especially during summer season when the tide reaches 2.0m. You may check it at the LLCDRRMO.
That Mundo Island is a private property if your paying 30 pesos in macario beach it does not include the mundo island, macario is not the owner of the mundo island they are just taking advantage telling people that the entrance fee include the island, the most bad part is that some beach goers leave their garbage in the island and the macario owner doesn’t even care.
