Ocean Vida


Ocean Vida - 3208Ocean Vida Beach and Dive Resort is situated on Malapasua Islands beautiful Bounty Beach, offering ocean views from almost anywhere in the resort. Malapascua is a small island located in the Visayan Sea on the northern tip of Cebu Island. The island is approximately 2.5 kilometers long and 1 kilometer wide. You can walk around it in two to three hours. Even if it is situated in one of the most developed provinces, it appears a world apart from the mainland. Around 4000 people inhabit the small island which does not have any paved roads or cars.

The resort also features a restaurant, free WiFi internet, beach bar and a fully equipped PADI 5* IDC dive center, Sea Explorers. Guests can relax in the comfortable hammocks or beanbag chairs right on the beach while enjoying one of the famous mango daiquiris or a selection of imported wines.

The restaurant offers a wide range of delicious local and international dishes and it is up to the guests to decide whether to dine in the charming wooden decor restaurant overlooking the sea or right on the beach.


Ocean Vida Beach and Dive Resort opened in 2010 and the 20 rooms are of the highest standard on the island. All rooms include a private terrace or balcony and are beautifully decorated with abaca and mahogany furniture. The rooms are equipped with air-conditioning, safety box, mini bar, hot and cold showers, beach towels and free WiFi. Choose between rooms with beautiful sea view located right on the beach or the quieter garden view rooms just behind the dive center.


A local fisherman put Malapascua on the map when he discovered thresher sharks jumping out of the water when fishing near the dive site we refer to as Monad Shoal more than 20 years ago. Since then the island has gained more and more popularity and is by many regarded as the top destination in the world to watch thresher sharks. However, diving around Malapascua is not only about thresher sharks. Divers are spoiled with a wide range of macro, reef and wreck diving.
