Malcapuya Island


A boat ride from Coron town to Malcapuya Island will take about 1.5 hour. The boats arrive on the north side of the Island. From there its a short walk over to the south side where a long stretch of white powdery sand welcomes you.

The water is shallow and you have to walk out quite a bit before it gets deeper. There are plenty of fishes fearlessly swimming around in the water and you can spot some giant clams at the bottom. The beach itself is undoubtedly one of the best beaches in the Calamian Islands, so if you want to spend a day relaxing on the beach Malcapuya is definitely the place to go.

The entrance fee is 200 Php per person and hiring a boat from Coron Town over the day will cost around 4000 Php. When going to Malcapuya you should also try to visit the neighboring Islands, Banana Island and Bulog Island
