Malay

Travel Guide
Crystal Cove Island

When you stay in this glorious area on the tip of Panay Island get out and explore because fascinating caves, superb dive sites, surf spots and tropical beaches await.

Malay is a municpality boasting miles of glorious coastline dotted with attractive bays, idyllic islands, seaside villages and watersport centers. Part of the Aklan province, Malay splits into a collection of 17 barangays (districts).

Caticlan is the main port of entry and the gateway to the region’s riches. Drive the coastal road to get a glimpse of the white-sand beaches and undulating green landscapes of Union Bay.

A short boat ride from Caticlan is the paradisiacal island of Boracay, one of the Philippines' most famous destinations for beachcombing, nightlife and watersports. Featuring 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) of fluffy sand, transparent water, bars, clubs, hostels and hotels, White Beach is the heart of the island’s activity. Go Jet Skiing, kitesurfing and windsurfing at Bulabog Beach and escape the crowds at Diniwid Beach. Also worth visiting are Balinghai Beach, Cagban Beach and Puka Shell Beach.

Diving enthusiasts will revel in the opportunity to explore the unspoiled caves and reefs of Laurel Island. Join snorkeling excursions to Crocodile Island. Try cliff jumping on Magic Island.

Back on the mainland, head along the west coast to Motag Living Museum and learn about the culinary, farming and handicraft traditions of Aklan. Nearby Nassug Point is another excellent location for scuba diving and snorkeling.

Travel inland for a break from the beaches. Marvel at the stalagmites and stalactites that decorate the chambers of Pangihan Cave. Hike the short, forested trail to Nagata Falls, in Nabaoy. Cool off from the summer heat at Agnaga Mini Falls and Cold Spring.

Reach Malay by flying to Caticlan’s Godofredo P. Ramos Airport from Cebu and Manila. It’s easy to get around the mainland area by taking tricycle taxis. Public buses connect Malay with other towns, such as Iloilo City, Kalibo and Roxas City, on Panay Island.
