The Mararison Island Adventure



Mararison or Malalison is an unspoiled 55-hectare hook-shaped island blessed with picturesque mountain ridges for a background, having refined white shells and corals for sand, transparent clear waters that boasts beautiful aquatic flora and fauna, hill tops perfect for short trekking that will enable you to see all of Mararison in its grandeur. Its mini-rainforest found in Tuyong-tuyong Hill (the highest hill in the island) is the home of yellow-naped oriole bird (tulihaw), fruit bats and carnivorous pitcher plant.
