There are many places to see and visit in Coron island for you and your family to explore but in our case, our tour guide shortlisted the areas for us because we were only allotted 1 whole day to visit these places: Kayangan Lake (Click to see review), Barracuda lake, Banol or Atuwayan Beach, and secret places, like lagoons and coral gardens. Too bad we weren’t able to visit the Skeleton Wreck and Twin Lagoon due to some tribe conflict. I don’t know. That’s what I’ve heard. Hahaha!
So, after our Kayangan Lake visit, our tour guide dropped us to Banol Beach, a small stretch of sandy white beach, where lunch is usually served for Coron Island Hopping Tours.
Banol beach is said to be a public beach, and similar to the beaches in Coron island which is surrounded by limestone cliffs. They say that El Nido, part of palawan, also looks like this beach but better and more beautiful than this beach. But as for me and myself, Puerto Princessa and Coron which is both part of Palawan is still one of the beautiful places I have ever been in the Philippines! Srsly, I ain’t joking. Palawan is now declared as one of the beautiful places in Philippines. Better than Boracay. Hahaha!
P.S. Don’t mind my unpleasant look. :))
Posing with cousins. I totally love the rock formation at the back!
A photo before we ate lunch. I really wasn’t able to take photos of our food since I was really famished that moment in time. Sorry. I have physiologic needs you know. Hahaha! But the food they served was really delicious. We had grilled fish, grilled chops, eggplant salad and vegetable curry for lunch, all freshly cooked right in our boat over a simple makeshift grill. Two thumbs up!
Always remember to put sunblock cream to protect your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays and sunburn before you soak up in the water! You don’t want to damage nor burn your skin, don’t you? This is the famous Coppertone sunblock but different from the other one because it is foamy and not in liquid. In all fairness, I do love it this way. It’s easy and fun to apply. Hahaha!
