Best snorkeling spot since you can see different species of fish on a waist deep water. Few huts were available for a fee. The beach was not crowded. The best... More

Paradise. Powdered white sand. 1.5 hrs boat trip from Coron city should be about Php 1500/PAc or £20 this includes boat rental and food for lunch Make sure you leave Malcapuya before 3pm or the waves get crazier on the way back.

A must visit! It was much bigger and had more beach compared to the other islands. The sand was like silk and the water was extremely clear.

I went here on a day trip from Coron. It takes around one and a half hours by boat to get there, but it is certainly worth it. It reminded of my favourite place in the world - Bora Bora - but easier to get to. The sand is fine, the sea is blue and the sky goes on for... More

Nice beach for snorkeling. Nice huts for having a picnic/lunch. Go in the morning/before noon. In the afternoon the Island hopping tours arrive. Has 2 "shops" where you can buy water, sodas etc. Nice fish life to watch when snorkeling.

As a part of the Island Escapade tour, I visited this island last. I was wowed by the long stretches of white sand and blue water, as well as the rock formations that gave you large views of the sea.
