Banana Island – Coron

Posted by on Jun 20, 2010 in Coron | 2 Comments

Like Malcapuya island, Banana Island is no ordinary route for Coron’s island hopping. You need a special boat and a day for the trip to the island coz it’s quite far compare to other common island tour. By the way, I’m happy to say that you can spend overnight in one of their cottages which cost around 700-1000 (I forgot the exact rate). There’s no electricity but they have a generator. No government running water but they have a supply of salt and fresh water. Food, you have to bring your own.

Got the chance to talk to the owner and he’s nice and talkative. Hehe. You can rent a Kayak and swimming is possible within their shore. Just beware of Sea Urchins, I’ve seen a lot on the east side of the shore.

      Hi Sue…

      I don’t have any contact with Banana nor Malcapuya but you can just drop by the place via bangkeros in Coron. Actually, both islands are part of the tour.
