Malajon Island also called Black Island is a remote island located some four kilometers west from Busuanga Island. It is an unspoiled island paradise, and at one time it was used as a setting for the reality show “Survivor”, a fact that shows how remote and untouched it is.
It owes its name to the majestic limestone mountain that covers most of the island. This mountain holds many natural caves and chambers which you can visit and explore. One of the more famous, called the Twin cave, is accessed via tiny entrance over a small makeshift ladder, which leads to the dark passageway inside. Another one, known as the Big cave, has an incredible huge frontage like something from a movie. The cave walls sparkle when struck by lighting, as if covered by diamonds. Nature has indeed sculptured a great masterpiece through its stalagmites and stalactites.
Contrasting the black mountain, the west side is home to a long and wide white sand beach. The azure water surrounding the island offers an amazing marine life as well as the remains of a shipwreck that lies right off the island’s beach for those who want to snorkel or dive.
