Just a Smile Away

Construction Starts at Malapascua Pier

malapascua-pierIt’s been a long time on the drawing boards but finally the construction of Malapascua Pier is underway.

The pier, a 280 meter long concrete structure will jut from beside the ticket-an on Logon beach, over the low laying sand banks to the center of the reefed bay. It will provide the potential (but widely considered unneeded) simplification of transport to and from Malapascua and many of the local boat operators know very little about the reason for it’s construction nor where the funds to do so have come from.

With construction of the concrete core expected to last for 3 months at a cost of₱ 22,660,000, the pier will likely affect tourism from this day forward and diminish the regular gatherers on Logon beach to meet to photograph the majesty of the island in the golden light of its’ sunsets. It’s hoped the height of the pier will not grossly disfigure the surrounding beauty but as yet little information is known.

malapascua-pierWhile many of the tunda boat captains believe the pier to mark the end of an era for the tunda market of Malapascua it’s clear their existence will not vanish completely as there are times when ferry boats are unable to cross the threshold of the bay’s encircling reef. Let’s hope enough remain to service these essential needs.

Backup PlanSo what is the backup plan for the many tunda boats?

Perhaps this tunda beside the construction material of the pier  is a telling tale of the future.

malapascuainfo will be following the implementation of the pier on a regular basis. If you have any information you think would be useful on this subject please get in touch at




It is now clear that the construction of the pier is that of a pillar based model which will allow water to flow beneath. This is a particularly important factor as a solid or rock based foundation would cause significant water stagnation on either side.
