Spent the day there doing nothing but enjoying the sun with a friend. The place is picturesque and tranquil. Just be careful their beach fees vary so make sure you settle on a price 200 Pesos and pay no more, they will ask for more.

We are divers so we didn't want to get a package for snorkeling so we book a boat with "nice in paradise tours" to go kayangan lake and banol. We were told the price in each place was 200php and 100php but the girl in banol tried to charge 300php, after some arguments we paid 200 and instead of getting... More

You shouldn't miss this one! I was blown away by the beauty of this place. It isn't as grand as Malcapuya, but the place has its own beauty and charm. This is usually a place for lunch and plain beach-bumming. Very lovely!

There were huts where you can have a picnic. It was great. There's always boats parked by the beach though so there's not much space to swim.

This beach is small but is a great place to eat, relax, and enjoy the crystal clear waters and white sand. It's tucked away but that adds to its appeal in my opinion.

Yeah, i was snorkeling around the trench and i was able to see a lobster coming out of its hiding place and after a little while i saw a turtle too. The turtle moved away upon noticing me. It really made my day and my visit to this beach worthwhile.

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
