Malamawi is an island just opposite Isabela City, an hour’s travel across the kilometer-wide Isabela Channel. It used to be a separate municipality but it became part of Isabela.
Basilan may have a bad reputation but if you are up for a one-of-a-kind adventure to visit a beautiful beach paradise, then heading to this small island in Mindanao is worth the risk. All your fears will be washed away once you’ve set your foot on this untouched beauty.
However, just to be on safe side, be sure to have a local tour guide come with you.
