The island of Coron in Palawan is one of the world’s most beautiful destinations. With a surreal topography, this paradise on earth makes each visit a unique, magical experience.

Planning a trip to Coron but don’t have any idea which beaches to go to? Here’s a list of 6 best and breathtaking beaches on the island:


1. Banol Beach

Banol Beach Coron

Immaculate, powdery white sand and crystal clear water. They sound familiar but this short stretch of land takes it to the next level.

Banol is beautiful, to say the least, plus it projects a cozy and laid-back vibe. It’s home to a diverse species of marine life visitors can experience up close when swimming.

There’s a good selection of food establishments that also serve refreshments, perfect when sunbathing. Nearby is the old Skeleton Wreck—a WW2 Japanese ship—ideal for tourists who are into snorkeling and diving.

2. Malcapuya Island Beach

Malcapuya Island Coron

This place gives-off that “Castaway” isolation feel. The boat ride takes more than an hour, but it’s worth it. If you’re after a quiet, relatively undisturbed location then this is your spot. Part of Malcapuya’s charm is its simplicity, which makes island-hoppers appreciate the mesmerizing scenery as a whole.

The surrounding foothills and neighboring islets set the backdrop for picture-perfect experiences, while the beach itself is the centerpiece.
