Magsaysay is a municipality that is located in the Cuyon Islands and consists of 11 Barangays namely Alcoba, Balaguen, Canipo, Cocoro, Danawan, Emilod, Igabas, Lacaren, Los Angeles, Lucbuan and Rizal.

The most adventures you'll be able to do on this island is to go island hopping. The two most visited were Cocoro and Putic Island. Even the municipalities and islands don't have some fancy and luxurious restaurants, bars or resorts but the positive vibes from the peaceful and calm surroundings are priceless.

Barangay Lucbuan is one of the oldest barangays in Magsaysay. This area might not have well-built establishments but it has its own airport. Unbelievable right? Well, it's not like an independent airport on an island. Cuyo Airport is situated in this barangay which belongs to the Municipality of Magsaysay in the Cuyo Islands. It makes it easier for travelers and time saver but only good for those who can afford. Aside from going through the air, you can also reach this island by boat. Yes, you can take ports from the surrounding islands.

So, what can you find in Magsaysay?

In this municipality, you can take your adventures through snorkeling, island hopping and observing the lifestyles in the islands. There are two islands that are popular in the area, the Putic and Cororo Island.

Putic is one of the islands that belongs to Magsaysay. On this island, you'll be amazed by the simple life of the locals. Farming and fishing is the main income source. If you want to stay longer, there are community beaches that you can stay at. You don't need to worry about the beach being crowded because this place will give you the thought that you're occupying the whole beach! But, since there's only a community beach around, it's simple.

Cocoro Island

This island will wake you up from the stunning rock formations! Yes, they are located in the seashores. Which is a good place to stay for a while or do a sun bath. You'll be able to snorkel and swim into the blue waters. The sand has a creamy color, the rock formation, the cold breeze, the sounds of the waves sounds perfect. There's a well-known popular lagoon in this area that you might want to dip.

The local residents in Cocoro are mat weavers made of pandan (locally known as Buri). They make products such as mat, picnic box, bag, and others.

Aside from going into the island, the beach and sand bar in Roxas bay is another option.

This bay has a white-sand, and refreshing view. The white-sand bar only appears during low tide and a place that you shouldn't miss. The sandbar can be an ultimate background in photography especially prenuptial photos.

They also celebrate the Pangalipay Festival annually in September that showcases the culture and the products of the Municipality. Magsaysay is also known in the mainland of Palawan because it never ever misses to join Baragatan Islands and join in the trade fairs
