The Resort

Magic Island is nestled between palm trees on the west coast of Cebu Island in the town of Moalboal. Ideally located between the town center and Panagsama (the main touristic area), offering a nice quiet location to relax. Situated right on the rocky coast line, giving perfect access to the amazing house reef with a drop off down to 50m, sporting an array of marine creatures from giant green sea turtles, frogfish, Pygmy seahorses and unspoiled coral reefs.
With 10 individual cottages on the premises and a dive center fully equipped to handle thirty plus divers, it never seems overly busy, allowing you to fully enjoy all of our amazing amenities, all of the time.

All of our cottages have either a sea or swimming pool view and are equipped with;
• Aircon & Ceiling Fan
• Hot Water Shower
• Soaps & Shampoo
• Hair Dryer
• Safety Deposit Box
• Pool & Bathroom Towels
• Mini Bar
• Unlimited Free Mineral Water
• Private Balcony with Comfy Seating

Our cottages can be set up with either a queen sized double bed or twin beds, and in five of our cottages we can add a 3rd bed if required.

The heart of any Dive Resort is the dive center and we make sure that ours is alive and pumping on all cylinders all of the time.
The dive center is located at the bottom of the resort right on the ocean edge. It’s fully equipped with;
• Three Bauer Compressors with continues flow Enriched Air filling capabilities
• Three outrigger dive boats (see Dive Boats)
• Individual hanging posts for all your dive gear
• Dedicated rinse tanks for all you dive gear and cameras
• Bathroom
• Drinking water
And of course excellent staff and dive guides

Here at Magic Island we like to treat everyone as family. This is very apparent in our dining area, where we have all the tables linked together, allowing everyone to sit and talk about all the amazing underwater creatures they saw that day. With an open view kitchen that allows you to see the Chefs busy at work, preparing all of your delicious meals in a modern, clean and hygienic work place. The bar is right next to the dining area and offers lots of tropical cocktails made with the freshest fruits and branded spirits. A great place to sit and tell tales of your past adventures.

Located in front of three of our cottages, with spacious lounging areas equipped with sun beds and umbrellas. If you want to soak up some rays or cool off at the end of the day, this is the place to do it. It is not far from the bar, so ordering a nice cocktail to quench your thirst is easy and very much recommended – after diving of course. We also use the pool for teaching scuba lessons; as it has an extra deep area specifically for diving tuition.

If you didn’t already feel relaxed enough, we have a great spa that offers whole body massages, manicures and pedicures. Josephine & Jean Ann look after the massages while Nita takes care of the mani/pedicures. Book a relaxing massage in the evening after a busy day diving and you are guaranteed to wake up the next morning full of energy and ready to go again.

We have two terraces and two beach houses, all furnished with sun loungers or seating areas and tables. Some are in the more hidden parts of the resort, so there is a place to get even further away from it all and relax. The main terrace is often used in the evening for dinner; it is situated over the dive center and there is a nice cool sea breeze. The two beach houses offer a great place to have a quiet meal with that special someone, maybe an anniversary, birthday, honeymoon or just a romantic meal to show your love to one another.

Would you like to see the real Philippines? Ask Concheng or Mayeth more about all the day trip possibilities we have on offer, such as a trip to the local waterfalls or a day out to snorkel with whale sharks. Besides that, you can also hire a motorcycle at the resort to roam around and visit the local market or long white beaches in the neighborhood.

We have WiFi throughout the whole resort, allowing you to keep in touch with your friends and family back home or more importantly, posting photos of your fantastic holiday to make them all jealous.
