Banana Island, Coron

4.5
#10 of 14 in Nature in Coron
Swim and snorkel in the clear turquoise waters near the open sea at Banana Island. A popular stop on an island-hoping package, the island features a narrow strip of white sandy beach set against the backdrop of forested, hilly terrain. Moor your boat at a small lagoon in the shape of a horseshoe, find a hammock chair, and swing lazily, sheltered by the shade of tall palm trees. Several cottages on the island provide overnight accommodation, and the island also boasts a beach volleyball court. Bring your own food and beverages and watch out for the waves in the afternoon--they can get quite big. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Coron holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Banana Island and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • We visited this island for an hour on a tour but would have loved to stay longer! Tip: bring small change rather than big notes if you want to purchase drinks or snacks.  more »
