Third day was another day spent at sea. We went to three beautiful islands: Malcapuya, Banana, and Bulog. These islands are far compared to the 15-minute boat ride going to Coron Island. We left the port at 9:15 am and arrived at our first stop around 10:45 am, a total of 1.5 hour travel. Good thing our group tour is still much the same, we just lost 2 people and had 8 new ones:)
1st Stop: Malcapuya Island
We always see a rainbow during our beach trip, just like in Bohol :)
Malcapuya is called the “Boracay” of Coron because of its white sand and clear blue water, minus the crowd of course. The snorkeling area is just a few meters away from the shore. The guides told us to wear our slippers, just a precaution for sting rays. We actually saw a small one but it was too fast.
There’s a short hike going on top of a small hill and it will give you a different perspective of Malcapuya and its surroundings.
2nd Stop: Banana Island
The island is called Banana because it looks like a banana (sabi nila e). There are nipa huts available if you want an overnight stay, a perfect getaway for a soul searching. Haha.
Our table is getting longer:) Spot the food lined up in the middle, it’s too much for 16 people. We tried giving them to our guides, they resist because they have their own. Sulit ang bayad!
3rd Stop: Bulog Island
Two Seasons Coron beside Bulog Island
There’s also a small hill in Bulog, and the view is overlooking Two Seasons.
Kuya Nono showing us a huge jellyfish (spot its long tentacles) and reminding us to be careful.
“Patay tayo diyan”shot
Sand bar that connects to Two Seasons. FYI: They have a security guard for the boundaries. Haha.
Kuya Nono telling us his experiences being a tour guide, laugh trip!
Passing by Coron Island as we head back to the port. We left Bulog at 3:50 pm and arrived at 5:40 pm because our guides showed us a different lagoon and where a ship wreck is (can’t remember which one).
We had another group dinner at Kawayanan Grill Station. It really is a small world in Coron, we bumped into our new friends at the restaurant and invited them to join us. The food is just average. Look at our reddish skin, the sun was out the whole day.
Wasn’t able to try this Crocodile Sisig, next time!
We had lunch at Lolo Nonoy’s on our last day. It’s located along the main road, just across Ice Valley. The food is very affordable and good too!
Mga ayaw paawat hanggang sa airport!
I gained a lot of friends from this trip, added 9 new friends in Facebook, and all in all it was a really fun trip! Until our next one:)
