Great place for lunch, softest sand ever

Beautiful place where we stopped to have lunch. It is a tiny beach so it may get a bit crowded at times but it does not matter that much. Also I have never experienced such soft... read more

For sure a beautiful beach, but there are like 8 other boats and 100 people (at lunch time). To crowded and not worth a visit. If there were no tourists it would be a paradise beach because it is beautiful. When we were there many boats left after lunch and I made some photos.

This beach was very beautiful, unfortunately is was a bit overcrowded and I found some places where tourist (the locals generally are good at cleaning up) have left garbage such as toilet paper or wraps in between the rocks towards the back of the beach creating a dumpster out of this beautiful natural spot. If you have rubbish then bring... More

This teeny white sand beach is just so cute, and a perfect short stop for lunch at the shaded tables. Fortunately we were the only tour group there so it was nice, but apart from eating and taking in the views, there is not much more to see or do.

This was our lunch stop during our first day of Coron island hopping. This beach is straddled along Coron's limestone cliffs. There are literally 5 or more of these types of beaches in Coron. We stayed here for about 2 hours

We stopped at Smith Beach for our lunch on the "Highlights Tour". OK, it was a bit crowded with several other boats. But what a gorgeous little beach with soft white sand. We ate our lunch in a thatched hut on the beach. Then we went swimming and snorkeling around the corner. In the water I saw an orange jelly... More

One of the island hopping tour stop over is this. Very cute island uninhabited by locals. Very clean and white sandy beach good for picture taking.

During one of our 4 day trips around the Coron Bay region (and beyond), we visited this great little beach (located on Chindonan Island) during the early morning (about 9am) and it was deserted - though our guide did say that this isolation won't last as we did a different "island hopping" route than the standard. Sure enough, when we... More

Small island, owned by a native Tagbanua family that stays there during the day to ensure that the island is well maintained and protected. Good views of white sands and blue seas. Water is crystal clear and like that is perfect for snorkeling. You can see some interesting marine world here, like STARFISH, different kind fish and many beautiful corals... More

Title of my review was how our tour guide described this place as we were approaching it. We stopped here for lunch, did a bit of swimming while the food's prepared, then "snoring" time was given after lunch, before we headed to our next island destination. The view of the limestone cliff is spectacular, I can just float on the... More
