Magransing Island is amongst of the uninhabited islands in Linapacan, Palawan. It also one of the most visited attractions in the province. In fact, this island is included in most island hopping tours offered in the town.
Similar to its nearby islands, Magransing also features crystal-clear emerald water and a stretch of white sand. But unlike the other islands, Magransing has little vegetation, and there are a few trees to give shades for visitors, making the area very hot.
What separates the island from the rest of the islands in Linacapan is that most of the trees have no leaves and only live off with branches. This features became one of the icons of the town. Moreover, the place has two sides, one that has marble rocks, while the other one has mangrove trees where most of the schools of fish reside.
Another famous feature of the island is its long stretch of a sandbar in the southern end that is comparable to the one in Snake Island in El Nido where guests can walk in the middle of the sea. The sandbar is wholly seen during low tide.
Aside from swimming and getting a tan, visitors can enjoy a leisure walk around the island or on the sandbar if the tides permit. The island also offers snorkeling as there is an abundance of marine life under the island waters. There are corals and fishes living in the island’s sandy bottom.
As a side trip, tourists can sail to the neighboring islands of Magransing which include Iloc Island and Maosonon Island. Iloc offers many unspoiled white beaches, while Maosonon has a white sandbar and an islet just across it.
There are also a handful of other beaches within El Nido such as Secret Beach, Hidden Beach, Nacpan Beach, and Seven Commandos Beach, to name a few.
