Water is shallow, a very small island where you can swim around and take pictures or lay under the trees and sleep under the shades because you had a long day... Wake up and everyone's gone :D Kidding :D

We stopped here for lunch and were lucky enough to be the first in. We chose our hut and had the local grilled lunch with its cats and dogs. Great beach for the standard stopover of its island tours.

The beach is one of the most popular lunch stops in Coron. There are many native huts with tables and chairs. Nothing says island vibe more than lunch right at the white beach using your hands to eat. After lunch, you can also spend some...More

This beach is not that big but very nice. Part of the tour to visit Banol Beach, Banana and Malcapuya Island which I highly recommend. This one was the less beautiful of the 3 even if absolutely worthy to be visited.

We docked on this island to have our lunch in one of the cottages. The place is good for taking pictures and relaxing. We even did some kayaking here. There's a small store here where you can buy sodas and beer and cigarettes.

Im not a huge beach person and prefer activities to lazing around but this was a stunning place to laze around for a couple of hours whilst having a beer. Very photogenic and chilled. A great place to put on any itinerary.

As other similar beaches in the area it is picturesque. Good place to take a lunch during tour on the boat. They were selling green coconut there.
