“Nice beach when not crowded”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

Very beautiful beach, but if there's more than two Bangka boats the beach is filled with boats.

“Must visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2011

It's a small white beach but very pretty... The rocks are beautiful and actually there's a small " secret " opening in one if the middle rocks that leads inside...once inside one could rock climb on top which has a wide opening but the walls are pretty sharp so be careful...lots of fishes at the sea shore but also a lot of spiny sea urchins..

“If you want to sunbathe or picnic, Banol Beach is for you”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2011

We just stopped by at Banol Beach because has quite a small shore and not conducive for a crowd. When we arrived there, there were only a couple of other tourists enjoying the afternoon sun lazing on the white sands. If you want to see live monitor lizards, definitely, this is the place for you. The beach has them but do not be alarmed! They immediately leave once they sense human presence close by. Size-wise, the lizards are smaller compared to their relatives in the forests leading to the Puerto Princesa Underground River! Better move to the nearby Atwayan Beach for a bigger shore and more cottages for your picnic!

“perfect location to see the sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2011

This is a pretty small island with limestone rock formations. And of course, fine white sand and clear water. We had a really great time here watching the sunset. must visit!
