What travelers are saying
- This is a must visit and you should include this in your island hopping, gorgeous and breathtaking. LOVE ITWritten July 21, 2022
- 700 step but is worth it, great view on the top. Finish it during the sunset in order to get some great shots from the top.Written June 8, 2022
- Twin Lagoons is a must see! It is soo beautiful. Do not skip if you’re planning a private tour, make sure it’s included if you’re joining a tour with other folks. Pictures do not capture how awesome this place is. You have to go see and experience it. The water inside the lagoon is quirky, it gets cool and warm, cool and warm as you swim around, nothing like it, so weird in an amazing way. Coron never ceases to amaze me. Would love to go back and stay longer.Written August 10, 2022
- This Island beach provides a combination of what most people travel to the Philippines to see... grand ocean/island scenery, white sand beaches with coconut groves, and excellent snorkeling. It is definitely a "family" destination, accessed by boat, with shade structures and picnic tables available. There were quite a few people there when we visited, despite the time/distance required to travel there by boat. While the beach and ocean scenery is phenomenal, as with many Philippine attractions the facilities leave a lot to be desired. There are toilet facilities with water (a plus), but there are numerous run down old/unused structures that need to be removed, and some areas of the island have been cleared (with small stumps sticking up everywhere) and replanted with a variety of mango, palm, and other types of trees or shrubbery.... not sure what the purpose is. The place needs a good, extra-heavy-duty clean-up, with properly done repairs to the usable structures, and the "resort" part of the island could be made to complement the scenery and beautiful beach. My "Very Good" rating is due to the ocean scenery and beach that make this place worth visiting, not the limited (and run-down) facilities offered.Written April 19, 2022
- Truly and amazing lagoon with gin-clear waters and dizzying depths. I suggest to swim and snorkel beside the rock formations since the view from underwater even at 10' depth is remarkable. If you look closely on the underwater face of the limestone rocks you could see shrimp and small catfish feeding on the rock faces.
Our tour guide Harold and his boatmen crew were very accomodating, patient and even entertaining. Some of our family members were very apprehensive in getting into the deep water even with their life vest that 2 of the crew volunteered to be their 1 on 1 "lifeguard" and guided them around the lagoon and even out in the open sea to enjoy the corals and the sea life on the nearby reefs. My family members calmed down after a few minutes and truly enjoyed the experience. We had them for 2 days doing our Coron tours.Written July 23, 2022
- We visited the Hot Springs early in the day. We arrived in the middle of a torrential downpour that lasted the first 45 minutes of our visit. It was wonderful! The combination of the hot spring water and the cooling rain was exquisite, and we had the entire place to ourselves for about the first full hour. This place is somewhat typical "Philippines", the sun shelters and facilities are all cobbled together, and fairly crude, in poor-but-functional condition. Nothing "high-end" about it, but it is an inexpensive place that locals, Filipino and foreign tourists all can mingle and enjoy! The pools themselves were well-kept, water was clean, is salty, with good circulation flowing through the pools. If you want to cool off, there is easy access to the ocean water, and there is a fresh water shower to rinse off. We really enjoyed talking with other visitors who showed up, and when we left our 5-person group all felt great. Well worth a trip to enjoy soaking in the hot salty water.
This is a nice place to go on an overcast or rainy day, otherwise visit late in the day because the hot sun and hot water isn't the best combination. MAKE SURE to take your water shoes or sandals as the area around the pools is rock/dirt, and you may want to wear them in the pools, as it is not paved and some of the surfaces are pretty rough if you have tender feet. There is a small store where you can get water, drinks, and snacks if you want them. The operator doesn't allow people to bring in their own food.Written April 19, 2022
- Apparently, not a lot of people go here because of the waves but we rented a speed boat from Busuanga and visited this island! It felt like a private island because it was just us there at the time! Only took one photo because spent the rest of the time actually enjoying the water. Very beautiful and relaxing.Written December 2, 2020
- The stairs is a climb to reach to get those famous shot for the gram. Beware, get your leg day on. However, it is worth it. The lagoon is soooo beautiful and breathtaking. I will mos def come back here.Written January 22, 2021
- Home away from home. Sandy white sands, crystal clear waters. This is Pass Island! No need to take a 2 hour boat ride from Coron!
From the Busuanga airport, take a 25 minute private van to the Concepcion or Sagrada town then a 20 minute boat ride.
From Coron, take a van ride to the Concepcion or Sagrada town for 35 minutes then a boat ride for 20 minutes.Written March 13, 2020
- Went on a private tour. Would recommend anyone interested in snorkeling to select this trip. Lots of Coral, Fish and wildlife.Written July 26, 2022
- They have very nice view from the beach. Quiet and clean place to stay or hangout. It is a 2hr motor ride from town but totally worth it. Tita was so kind she even offered us for an overnight stay. Great food and they can provide fresh buko. My bf now fiancè did his proposal there (it was a secret) hahaWritten July 18, 2022
- I enjoyed feeding the giraffes. It's once in a lifetime experience that you should not miss once you are there. It's a good experience even if their mini zoo is not attractive at all. It needs a lot of improvement.Written December 6, 2019
- Banana Island was my favorite island when we did our island hopping tour. We stopped by this island for lunch and stayed for about an hour and a half. The water was crystal clear. The island was clean and well maintained. I would have loves to stay longer. Will definitely book a private boat next time we visit Coron. Prefer to stay at Banana Island than Malcapuya Island.Written July 20, 2022
