“Lovely little beach with a great bar serving reasonably priced drinks”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Atwayan beach is not the most beautiful white sand beach you will find in Coron, but it is perfect for a stop if you want to chill out and have a few drinks. It's the only beach we came across that had a little bar, and surprisingly the drinks were more reasonably priced than the drinks in Coron town, served by a really friendly, elderly gentleman. We had lunch here during a tour that we booked from the town, and just relaxed in the sun and had some beers, it was really lovely. It's not great for snorkelling though, even though there is a coral garden to the left hand side. There are better snorkelling spots at Coral Eden and Twin Peaks. But if you're looking for a beach with a little atmosphere to have a good time then I would come here.

“Bad snorkeling to even worse karaoke”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

Atwayan should be a lovely paradise beach - and if man hadn't intervened, it would be. Our boatman took us there as an alternative to Smith Beach, which he said looked crowded. Fair enough. But the problem was that, weirdly, a karaoke bar was in full swing ... the singers were worse than those featured in the first rounds of the X-factor.

The corals were entirely dead and there were no fish.

Maybe we visited at the very worse time, bearing in mind the other reviews ... but all the same, if you have a choice, avoid this one.

“Perfect spot for watching the sunset!”
Reviewed 17 January 2014

Most people come here for lunch but I was able to try watching the sunset from this island. This is a must! The sky was red, orange, pink and blue at the same time! It was so beautiful and memorable! Although not all boats are allowed to stay after 5pm in the ocean but if you are the owner of the boat, the coast guard will allow you.

“just one of very much beatiful beaches here without any highlight”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

it is one of so much beautiful beaches in this country. the specialty of the islands and beaches in Palawan is that they are all almost untouched, what means, no human altered the nature. You can also see it on every beach full of starfishes and so on. Nice place, but Atwayan Beach is just a place to lay down and go in the water...like all the other beaches in Palawan

“Beautiful but be careful of the fishes”
Reviewed 5 October 2013 via mobile

this was were we had our lunch. The beach is beautiful just like all the other tourist spots in palawan. Just be careful of the fishes because they can get very territorial. One of our companions was bitten though it was not a serious wound. We also enjoyed kayaking in this beach especially since the kayaks are free if you get your package from calamian tours.
