“Nice Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

The boat ride going to the island could be rough. We sailed through big waves and if you're a scaredy cat you won't like it. It is a beautiful island with white sand but not fine. It even have some dead corals on the shore. We just had loads of fun taking pictures but not swimming.

“Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2012

We had our lunch on Banana Island, but personally I like Macapuya island next to it more
When we were there, it's quite windy and wavy so snokelling is a bit tough but it's still enjoyable.

“Getaway island”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2011

If you are travelling to Coron, this should be in your itinerary for island hopping.

Though this island is far from the city, its worth the travel. The view is fantastic, i think you can spend the night here. But be cautious on the owner, Violeta, she will ask a lot, even load so she can reply back.

The island is really beautiful though :)
