“Nice relaxing beach (before it gets crowded)”
Review of Banana Island

Banana Island

Reviewed 4 May 2014

One of the islands we went to in our Full Day Island Escapade Tour. Around 10 minutes from the first one, Malcapuya.

Has white sand, clear water, good for swimming. This used to be a resort, now a public beach (there's entrance fee).  Business slowed down when Two Seasons opened a resort on a nearby island. We had lunch here as there were picnic tables and hammock where you can relax afterwards. No bananas (why the name? no one knew why)

One of the best beaches in Coron. There was a hut with hammock and table to rest, we had our lunch there. We snorkeled in the area and there was a part where the sea floor vanished already. We also enjoyed our jump shots in this island.

We visited this island as part of the 3 island tour namely Bulog Dos, Malcapuya and Banana island. If you like to snorkel of the 3 this is by far the best. Close to beach, there are corals galore,giant clams and lots and lots of fish...Warm crystal blue waters, beautiful blue skies and our very own (for a moment) island.We ate our picnic lunch here and there are hammocks to relax in after our meal. It was very hard to say goodbye to this amazing place.

Relax and take your time on this lovely quiet island. White sandy beach for volleyball, and hammocks for a nap after BBQ lunch here.

Our tour guide gave us biscuits and cooked rice and told us to drop the food, little by little, into the water (we were only WAIST-DEEP!). OMG - parrot fish, assorted striped fish, small tilapia, just rushed in around us. A-freakin-mazing!
