I love this beach! Fine sand, clear waters, laid back environment plus super friendly people. Perfect place to relax, away from all the noise of the city. This island has a volleyball court, a basketball court and a hut perfect for sleeping. This place is just perfect, I would go back right now if I can!

This was part of a three island tour, and was my favorite. The snorkeling was the best here, although aggressive fish due to tourists feeding them! Tons of clams in all sizes and colors. We saw all sorts of tropical fish as well. There is a small shop to buy soda and snacks also.

I loved the way the Banana island was planned out. From the trees, the flowers and the stretch, it was wonderful. they even had a kubo you could use for free and just relax.

One of the islands we went to in our Full Day Island Escapade Tour. Around 10 minutes from the first one, Malcapuya. Has white sand, clear water, good for swimming. This used to be a resort, now a public beach (there's entrance fee).  Business slowed down when Two Seasons opened a resort on a nearby island. We had lunch here... More

One of the best beaches in Coron. There was a hut with hammock and table to rest, we had our lunch there. We snorkeled in the area and there was a part where the sea floor vanished already. We also enjoyed our jump shots in this island. Visited Nov 2011

Our tour guide gave us biscuits and cooked rice and told us to drop the food, little by little, into the water (we were only WAIST-DEEP!). OMG - parrot fish, assorted striped fish, small tilapia, just rushed in around us. A-freakin-mazing!
