This is an enchanting Island, where it's a real pleasure to walk on the sand, look around, swim and enjoy some snorkeling.

Very beautiful beach, cristal water, white sand and the rock behind make the scenario quite unique. During our tour we stayed here only for 1 hour including lunch, so we did not have enough time to enjoy it. I’d love to stay here much more. The only one negative thing is the sea is full of some strange kind of... More

This was by far one of my favorite part of our day trip around the islands. Our crew cooked our lunch right there and served us this amazing meal with nobody else around. This really felt lie we were alone on a deserted island!

But go here before the number of tourists become numerous. We had the beach all to ourselves around past 11 in the morning. It was very relaxing indeed. Our tour guide prepared the meals and indeed it was amazing to hear the splash of the waves while having seafood, grilled pork liempo and some fresh coconuts (a local sells it... More

Something in the water, or in the sand, or perhaps it was the rocky sentries guarding the shore that brought out our creative craziness. These pictures will speak volumes more eliquently of the magic of Banol Beach.

Have you ever been to a place where you only hear your heart beat? Tranquil! This place will transport you back to uncharted islands. We visited this place when no one was around. We had the beach to our selves. This is where we had lunch. So clean! Kudos to the local families who reside there. Support them by buying... More

Travelling to Coron/Busuanga, our goal was to experience the many snorkelling opportunities (reefs, marine life & wrecks) that were available on day trips leaving Coron port. We pre-booked using Calamianes Expeditions & Ecotours for our four days of planned adventure and this place was one the sites visited/experienced during one of the private day trips.

Banol Beach was our last stop on the private boat tour we purchased. I am not sure if its normally busy during the day, however, we had the entire beach to ourselves. The water was very clear and the sand was like powder. It was a good way to end the tour.
