The minute you set foot on Malcapuya Island one could tell that this is one of Coron’s well-kept wonders, the feeling of paradise quickly comes to mind. Malcapuya’s long beach stretches almost the entire length of the island, it has milk powder-like sand and there are no rocks beneath so it’s an ideal destination for swimming or just lounging under...

Beach is awesome. It is 1.5 hours away from town so expect powdery white sand and the clearest waters. Would love to go back here, worth going back to. Don't skip this tour when you go to Coron. I'd suggest you get a private tour or hire a boatman instead of joining a tour so you could maximize your time...

I would have given this 5-stars back in 2009 when I first experienced it. There were no tents set up on the beach, and you approach the island from the "front" where the wide shore is. There were colorful flags bordering the shoreline, which made it really pretty and welcoming. At the time, there were only about 2 other groups...

Getting there takes 1.5 hours, depending on the wind, if it's in your favor (hangin Amihan or hangin Habagat). It is a place if you want to take a swim in the beach. There are tents set up, but that's it. It isn't as relaxing as I expected. There's no place to take a relaxing nap. There's white sand and...

Boats are parked on the backside of the beach. You'd pass the "jungle like" and a bit grayish sand full of shells on that part but when you reach the tent, you could see the nice wide stretch of beach. It was powdery white but was again expecting a more relaxing ambiance like that of banana island, there are green...

Loved this island. As part of our island hopping tour we ended up staying here for a little over an hour to swim/snorkel and have lunch. Take the banka out to get to where the giant clams are and see some corals. If you're lucky, you might be able to spot a young blacktip reef shark. I know I did....

I am reviewing the beach and not the hotel. This little island is beautiful. White beach and there is actually someone sweeping up the seaweeds and trash from the beach. It has a little cliff for you to get an elevated view of the beach. You can get coconut juice there at P40 and rent either a cottage or tent....

This small island was about 1,5 - 2 hours by boat from Coron public market. Clean water with powdery white sand, you can bring your own picnic meals here, or even cook a BBQ here. Make sure you visit this island when you go to coron, I warranty you will satisfy.

This is one of the most beautiful islands I've seen! It will take you an hour and a half to get from Coron town proper to here but it's all worth it! The sand is powdery white and it stretches really, really far! The water is blue, calm, and there are no rocks beneath so swimming is such a delight!...

“There area cottage along the beach but doesn't have airconditioning. I'd rather stay at banana island, though rate is a bit higher (1000/pax/night) that island is really amazing! I love it there”
