  • Malcapuya Island is one of the bigger and more populous islands in the area, sighting many more locals, adorning a beautiful white-sand beach all while being preserved delicately and a haven to swim in with slightly formidable waves. There's also a basketball court, and plenty of docking area which is hidden from view as it's on a different side of the island. A small walk alleviates as such.
  • Dream island hide away, excellent place for diving snorkelling and white sand beach swimming. Kayak around the island in around 40 min. Would love to come back here and stay overnight or stay forever! Describe a heavenly Island in one word, MALCAPUYA!
  • With clear turquoise waters, a nice reef for snorkeling, long stretch of fine white sand where feet literally sink just walking - this beach is typically a good place for a peaceful retreat.
  • A simple island. You can ask the boatmen to bring you to the area with giant clams and numerous fishes for P100.
  • White sand and calm beach! A must place to visit when you're in Coron. Lots of Instagram worthy photos :)
