Malayas River in Victoria
Victoria, Oriental Mindoro, Philippines
Malayas River is a clean and shallow river in between Barangay Sampaguita and Barangay San Antonio in Victoria, Oriental Mindoro. The water of Malayas comes from Gipit River upstream, and exits to Sampaguita River downstream. Along Malayas River is Villa Pando Resort, a decrepit picnic area that offers cottages (P100/cottage) and rooms (P150/room, good for two) for rent. The river facing the resort has been dug out to artificially deepen the area for swimming. While most residents wallow in the river fronting Villa Pando Resort, swimming in the other, quieter sections of the river is also possible, although not as deep. The deepest parts of the river can reach only above the knees, which is safe for kids.
