Malcapuya Island, Coron

(4.7/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Surrounded by shallow waters ideal for a range of sports, Malcapuya Island features a long stretch of white powdery sand. Dock your boat here and hike to the top of the island's rocky outcrop to gain sweeping views of the sea. You can also swim and snorkel farther off shore to discover coral reefs. Beware of stingrays, barracudas, and black-tip sharks if you do opt to spend most of your time in the water.
