5. CYC Beach
The only public beach in Coron.
4. Malcapuya Island
Malcapuya Island is a beach with a long stretch of very fine white sand. You’ll surely enjoy hanging out in this spot.
Travel Tip: At the left part of the beach, there is an elevated part of the shore where you can hike and have a vantage point of the island. Nice for photo ops and creative photography.
3. Banana Island
A privately owned island, Banana Island is, no, not shaped like a banana, but was said to be abundant with banana trees many years back. This island is also a lunch stopover spot for island hopping tours. Enjoy the calm and pristine waters after eating. Kayak rentals are also available.
2. Barracuda Lake and Siete Pecados
These are said to be the best diving and snorkeling spots. Both sites are a must when visiting Coron!
1. Bulog Dos Island
Saving the best for last. When I returned to Coron last 2013, that was the first time I reached this island…and I fell in love with it! A white sand shore and a sand bar on the side, Bulog Dos offers the best of both worlds! Not to mention that this island is the closest to the famed luxury resort of Two Seasons.
Hope to visit Calauit, Cuyo, and Busuanga in the near future. Although I don’t really mind going back for the 3rd time. to Coron. This island is really worth every penny!
