Coron Part Two: Weekend in Paradise

Welcome to the second part of our trip to Coron! If the first part is all about snorkelling and other water activities, our third day is more of a relaxation day. Yes we did island hopping, but we just visited Coron's most sought-after beaches. This is actually my favourite part of the trip.

We visited 3 islands during this trip. We booked the Coron Tour C which includes Isla Bulog Dos, Banana Island, and Malcapuya Island through JY Travel and Tours Coron.  These islands are an hour and a half away from the port so it was a long boat ride before we got to these pristine white beaches.



We're ready for our boat ride!


First stop, Isla Bulog Dos.

Bulog Dos is a little island with the famous white sandbar that can be seen especially when low-tide. This island also has this tall rock formation that almost formed a cliff where you can see the whole island and the neighbouring Two Seasons Coron.


Honestly, this one is my favourite. Just look at the white sand and turquoise waters, stunning right?

cuzzies!

Mon Amour!




This is the rock formation I was telling you about. There's a stairway at the side of this rock so you can climb up and see the amazing view.









This is breathtaking! This was taken from the top of the cliff, you can see the whole island and that sandbar of course!






We spent lunch time on this island so we were able to swim and took more photos.

Just look at how clear the water is!

Next stop, Banana Island. 

This island is perfect for that R&R that you've always wanted. The island is full of hammocks, beach huts and beach beds where you can take a nap or simply rest while admiring the beautiful view.

Imagine lying down the hammocks while seeing the coconut tress swing and rustle through the wind. So relaxing. I took a nap during our stay there!






Some of our tourmates spent the night here, they didn't come with us to the next island. You can stay on this land for a reasonable price of P 1000.

I made this hat by the way! Just email me if you wanna order!


Last stop is the Malcapuya Island. 

This island is famous for coconuts and fish feeding activities, You can pay P150 and the boat will drag you to the best fish feeding spot on this island. You can take underwater photos while feeding the fishes! It's a must to bring a GoPro camera or any underwater camera with you to capture every moment.

You can also buy fresh coconut to help you cool down especially this summer.


I think I've mentioned in my last post how I love beach dogs right? They're so adorable!

Again an hour and a half boat ride on the way home. We were able to catch the sunset, it was astonishing.

We were pretty tired after our long boat ride so obviously we're all starving already. We ate dinner at Lolo Nonoy's again! Johnny enjoyed Lolo Nonoy's because the food here are huge servings of Filipino dishes in affordable prices. Don't forget the halo-halo!

This was taken during our last day in Coron. I really enjoyed our stay in Coron Westown Resort, the service is superb.

I hope this post helped you in planning your itinerary if ever you're visiting Coron anytime soon! This is my favorite destination in the Philippines so I hope you enjoy your stay there! You can email me if you want a copy of our itinerary. I'd be more than willing to share it with you.
