Malamawi Beach, a must visit island in Basilan

Malamawi Beach
Malamawi White Beach is one of the hidden paradise and the top tourist spot in Isabela City, Basilan. It is a privately owned resort in the island with a long stretch of fine white sand shoreline. To see its beauty, from Zamboanga City port, I rode on a ferry to Isabela City. Then, a motorised banca to the port of Malamawi and a 20 to 30 minutes motorcycle ride to the white beach.

The resort has wide area, with an open ground covered with grass and the coconuts and other trees maintains the relaxing ambiance. There are cottages for rent and a function hall. Store and canteen are available inside the resort premises. Also, parking areas are available.
