Banana Island

Posted by on May 30, 2016 in Coron | No Comments

One of the famous islands while in Coron is the Banana Island. I’m not sure exactly why it was called a banana island when there’s no even a banana tree on the area.

As we head to the the island. I was so excited that we will be spending the night there. I imagine the photos and videos that I will bring home because Banana island is indeed special.

We arrived at the island around 3 pm. My first impression was, the area has been well taken care of. I’ve been here few years ago and I can say that it still beautiful as before.

They provide fresh water (limited of course). What I like about the owner is that they are investing with solar power. A very green attempt I should say.

There’s a newly built cottage that I originally prefer. But due to budget reasons, we decided to stay at the cheaper ones. Still a good option in my opinion.

I attempted to do a milky way shot but due to bad weather, I just dud a night shots around the island.

My wife and I decided that if ever we will visit Coron once again, we will be spending 2 -3 nights on this Island. Very relaxing and nice experience.
