“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Again another great island as part of our island hopping trip, great snorkelling, sunbathing or just for getting away from it all and forgetting the world and it's woes!

“For beach bumming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Unlike the beaches in the Coron Loop tour, Banana Island is best for just lazing around. We stopped here to eat lunch before heading to Malcapuya. We were told that guests can stay overnight which would be a good idea because Coron Town does not have the same nice beach.

“Banana Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Lovely island for nature lovers. Approximately 1.5 hours away from town by banca. This was the second island destination of our island hopping tour where we had a our lunch. The amenities were simple but the grounds were kept clean. What is best is the view and feel of nature with white sand beach, turquoise to deep blue clear water...hammocks tied to coconut treas by the beach (just like in travel magazines). You can also do snorkeling too. Very relaxing place if you just want to be a beach bum with your family or friends the whole day. The entrance fee is 100/pax, but if you got an island hopping package then it is included together with a hefty lunch of crabs, squids, grilled pork, fish and chicken.

“Nice beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Banana island was kept clean. The sand was close from beige to offwhite but very fine. The place is clean and you will enjoy it here
