Banana Island – Coron


Like Malcapuya island, Banana Island is no ordinary route for Coron’s island hopping. You need a special boat and a day for the trip to the island coz it’s quite far compare to other common island tour. By the way, I’m happy to say that you can spend overnight in one of their cottages which cost around 700-1000 (I forgot the exact rate). There’s no electricity but they have a generator. No government running water but they have a supply of salt and fresh water. Food, you have to bring your own.

Got the chance to talk to the owner and he’s nice and talkative. Hehe. You can rent a Kayak and swimming is possible within their shore. Just beware of Sea Urchins, I’ve seen a lot on the east side of the shore.

Malcapuya Island – Coron


Going to Malcapuya Island is not the usual Coron tour route. You have to allocate another day and special boat to visit the Island. The place is nice, white sand, and has a cottage that you can spend overnight. However, the rate is 5k to 10k up depends if there are other occupants in the area. There’s no electricity so they have to run the generator thus making the accommodation more expensive if you’re alone to occupy the whole apartment.

The island is interesting in terms of photography. White sand on the front side, and rocky shore on the back side.

What Can I say? Just recommended. Although it’s nice to visit the island, I don’t think it’s a nice idea to spend overnight. The rate is expensive. I chose to stay in Banana island (neigbor island) which is more affordable. Though this might be subjective to some.
