My wife and I decided to stay overnight in Banana Island. We're glad we did. The island is one of the best places in Coron. Fine white sand, crystal clear swimming area, quiet ambient place. The room where we slept is very comfortable. By the way, the owners are Filipino that's why it's best to patronize this place.

The best island I've visited during my stay in Coron. The place offers a lot of good spots for photo ops and a very relaxing view of the calm sea. Perfect place for snorkeling too! Wish I can go back! 😍😍

15 minutes away from Malcapuya is Banana Island. Another white sand beach where you can enjoy the sun and beach bum under the coconut trees. There is a snorkeling area where you can see giant clams.

Banana Island offers a Boracay-like white beach with good corals for snorkelling. It also offers basic overnight accommodation in huts. The area is quiet and sheltered from the wind.

We did intend on stopping here for a lunch stop on one of our four days whilst exploring Coron but we opted to carry on to Malcapuya Island as this was not only busy but way too developed for our intentions. This island has definitely been set up as a hot tourist stopover and not what we were seeking (one... More

one of the best island we visited. lots of fishes! even if these was our lunch stop, our tour guide never took a rest time, they we're there to guide us. Calamian Tours, Arjay and Dalton did a wonderful job. They helped my mom so much. Make sure to tip them because they deserve it!

We thought it was too small for such a long ride to get there, so I would recommend skipping it and focusing on other areas.

This is one of a kind beach and a must visit place in Coron Palawan. Very relaxing place, love the sand and the turquoise blue water and just how secluded the place is from everything. you'll lose track of time of napping at one of the hammocks and you will fail to count calories eating buko and fish in this...
