Banana Island, Coron

4.5
#10 of 15 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.

  • This island was the next one we went to after BULOG DOS. It was truly a magic island as well. We were tempted to stay here overnight since they had cottages. Its one of those island where you wanna be...  more »
  • This beach is beautiful. Clear water, white sand, palms... definitely worthy a viewing. Lots of spots where to take beautiful pictures. Absolutely worthy to be visited.  more »
  • After lunch at Macabua Beach, go snorkeling on Banana Island, Banana Island snorkeling when there are two points to pay attention to, 1 is the shore shoal of stone is more sharp, from the shore to go deep water need to pay attention to the foot of the sharp stones, as far as possible to wear diving shoes/socks; 2 is to pay attention to the sea shell, especially in the open way lying Never use your hands to catch them. The main aspect of the Banana Island is underwater coral, although the Cologne is gradually the door up but also a small number of travel, coupled with local environmental awareness is strong, so here you can see a lot of colorful large coral, praise!!!

  • It’s called banana as the island is a shape of a banana according to the local.
  • Place for snorkeling and snoring...
  • Cool place. But in the zone of snorkelers much grass floats on the surface and in the grass is pretty much garbage.
