Malbato Chapel is located on top of a hill in Sitio Malbato in Coron. It offers panoramic views of the sea. A short trek up some stairs is required to get to the chapel. It is also known as St Vincent Ferrer Chapel. It is seldom crowded so one can get a private respite in the chapel.
The Reyes Family who owns Kubo sa Dagat, a private home in the middle of Malbato Bay, Coron, erected this chapel for the residents of Malbato. The intricate structure of the chapel is a mosaic of different-sized stones and seashells, which compliments the island, being a famous place for nature and beaches. Locally produced materials were used in the chapel’s altar, signifying the rich resources and culture of the area.
As Malbato Chapel is quite a long drive from Coron Town proper, it is usually done as a day trip coupled with Calauit Safari, Peminta Falls, or Concepcion Falls. You may opt to join a guided tour or rent a private car/van to this chapel.
This is an all-year round destination which can be visited anytime.
