This is the best island I've seen in Coron with powder white sand, crystal blue waters and trees lined up along the shore. This is a must visit before a big hotel brand starts building a resort here.

We visited this island on a day when there were very few other people on the island. Unfortunately, it is set up with dozens of picnic tables and must be chaotic when lots of people are visiting at the same time. We loved the white sand beaches and the rather small snorkeling area. There were lots of fish, some nice... More

Most beautiful beach we saw in coron, not much snorkelling, but great for swimming and scenery. The boats dock on the other side of the island so you can swim freely!

Its a two hours boat ride from Coron town proper. We left the town at 830am and reach Malcapuya 1040am. The island has clear blue water and white fine sands. Best snorkeling spot since you can see different species of fish on a waist deep water. Few huts were available for a fee. The beach was not crowded. The best... More

Paradise. Powdered white sand. 1.5 hrs boat trip from Coron city should be about Php 1500/PAc or £20 this includes boat rental and food for lunch Make sure you leave Malcapuya before 3pm or the waves get crazier on the way back.

A must visit! It was much bigger and had more beach compared to the other islands. The sand was like silk and the water was extremely clear.

I went here on a day trip from Coron. It takes around one and a half hours by boat to get there, but it is certainly worth it. It reminded of my favourite place in the world - Bora Bora - but easier to get to. The sand is fine, the sea is blue and the sky goes on for... More
