The sea was rough. Accdg to the tour guide --it is the usual scenario. If you are not aggressive and adventurous, then be in doubt. Took a few steps since our boat dock on the other side of the island. I love the view and the fine white sand. Had our lunch in this island.

Probably one of the best island tour of what Coron has to offer. Calm, clear, warm water with beautiful sandbars offer a perfect picturesque spot for everyone to enjoy. Definitely a place to check out when visiting Coron!!!

The beach here is incredible, white sand and crsyal waters but be sure to go on the snorkelling boat trip while here. It really wa one of a kin. You are dragged along, holding onto ropes onto the side of the boat whilst you snorkel. Great fun and some incredible sea life.

The water is crystal clear, then turquoise, then rich blue. The sand was white and beautiful. There are kabana/huts to sit and avoid too much... More

One of the real wonders of Coron, Malcapuya Island just has a certain vibe about it that is so peaceful! I would HIGHLY recommend staying overnight. We did the Big Dream Boat Man Tour and on one of the nights we camped overnight on Malcapuya Island. It was AMAZING. Our tour guide Krish set everything up for us, all the... More

Our tour guides took us here for lunch. The beach was relaxing. The sand was warm as well as the water. It was blue and clear. We spent about an hour on this island taking pictures and just enjoying the view. The scenery was gorgeous! I wish I spent more time here - tanning (=

We stayed in Coron 8 days and we decided to go twice to Malcapuia because it's really peaceful and awesome island ! Clean water and long walk on the beach, I suggest you to go after 3 pm and maybe spend the night there with the tent , incredible night sky view . I strongly recommend it .
