Review of Bulog Island

Reviewed 4 May 2014

The last island we went to as part of the Island Escapade Tour. This pales in comparison to Malcapuya and Banana Island.
- Next to 2 Season's Hotel (luxury hotel) but not allowed to go there
- Small island, with sand bar.  Actually 2 islets, but one is private
- Shallow clear water, with small cliff-like structures
- Maybe good for photo shoot, but so-so for swimming. We didn't get to see much here

Just a sandbar away from Bulog Dos is the Two Seasons Resort which charges big $$$. Get the same fine white sand experience for the fraction of the cost by going with the tour that has Bulog island as one of the options. It was crowded with other tour groups when we got there, luckily after they had their pictures taken they went away very quickly. At last our very own private island. We just lazed around the very shallow water and snorkelled to our hearts content. While the corals were not the best in Coron, it was still good enough. Wear the life vest that the tour supplies you with so you can safely snorkell and also provides protection from the sun.

Malcapuya is better. Bulog Dos is the only public area. Bulog Uno is a private islet. At low tide, you'll see a sand bar connecting Bulog Dos to the uber-hyped Two Seasons Resort. Sand is white, but pebbled.

Crystal clear waters and fine sand. On a bright sunshine-y day, our stay on the beach was fun and relaxing. I can never get tired of Coron.

On our 2nd day in Coron, we went island hopping and this was our first
stop. Excellent snorkeling 15-20 feet from the beach. Saw parrotfish,
angel fish, barracudas, snapper, blue tang, triggerfish, trunkfish, and Moorish idols. Water is warm. I would suggest wearing a shirt and if possible, a full length wet suit. I got sun burned on the back of my legs, neck, arms and back. There is a fee for visiting - 150 pesos per person.
After visiting Bulog, head over to Banana Island and Malcapuya Island for more great snorkeling and picture taking.
