Coron Part 3

Who said my Coron experience ended on Part 2?

A day tour in two of the best islands and great views I've seen so far and one of the many reasons why I love Coron.
From the port, it took us an hour boat ride to get to Banana Island. Even if the waves were really strong and the ride was a bit scary, I was asleep the whole time. Our boat man said it was safe and so I slept peacefully though when I woke up, I was partially wet because of the sea water.

This was what greeted us as our boat docked.
Cream colored powdery sand, different shades of blue and a gorgeous view. With the smile of the sun, everything was luminous. By far . .  my favorite island.

Banana Island

It is located in Bulalacao, Coron and it got its name because it is a shape of a banana on aerial view.

The view is just relaxing to look at.

3. Jumpshot

. . . and more jumpshots.

4. Climb a coconut tree

5. Eat
We went to the market at Coron town before the tour and just had the boat men cook our food

6. Photo shoot

You can also stay overnight which will cost you PhP200 each per night. Take note that there are only cottages available and no electricity.

Our next stop was at Malcapuya Island which was just a few minutes boat ride from Banana Island

It was late in the afternoon when we got here and the sun was all out smile.
With Gab and Melai.

A couple of steps going up the view deck and once again, Coron did not fail to amaze us.

I can live here and never get tired of this gorgeous place.

Oh yes, there will always be a jumpshot though not too much effort on this because it was scorching hot.

Our two travel buds, Gab and Melai were the only ones who went to explore the surf. The rest of us agreed that our skin had enough so we just stayed at the sand and away from the sun . . . and enjoyed our fresh buko juice for PhP50 and that Lala fish cracker on Ayoy's head hehehe

I had a photo with two French tourist hunks which I just did because of Gab and Melai. While they both were looking for the fishes in the water, I had my catch on land.
