Malcapuya Island

When the weather is fair, boatmen brave the challenging 2-hour trip to one of Coron’s most well-preserved tourist destination -- the beautiful Malcapuya Island, home to panoramic sights and diverse marine life.

Ask every tourist who has already visited Malcapuya Island and they will always have the same answer — the rough, almost scary trip to Malcapuya Island will be quickly forgotten once you’re already taking in the one-of-a-kind beauty of this little paradise. The bright white, powdery sand is nothing short of impressive while the pristine waters — a clashing mix of deep blue and cerulean — is downright inviting. Its secluded location makes it a perfect place to relax — you can ditch the swimming activities and just let the wind rock you as you lay in hammocks that are available in every spot. See beyond Malcapuya’s shore and dive into a fascinating underwater view — the island is so well protected and visitors can see that in Malcapuya’s rich marine life.
