Been here for a lunch stop in 2011 and 2013 and didn't make much of it. But for this visit, wow, Banol beach was a revelation. On the first day, we swam for like an hour in its crystal clear waters and took photos of the cliffs and rock formation. One can cross to the other side of Banol beach,... More

This is the only beach that we were able to swim in for awhile. The water and beach was clean. Unfortunately its jelly fish season now and there were millions of them in all the beaches near coron town.

Big rocks, clear water and white sand beach... Seychelles ? No Coron ! We stayed on Banol beach for lunch during our island hopping tour in Coron (coron lake tour A, 650PHP), this beach rather small is picture perfect.

Before i left for Coron i was looking at pictures of it everyday. My expectations were really high by the time i got there. When i finally got there, it exceeded my expectations. Clear blue water, perfect water temp, beautiful nipa huts sitting on the beach.
