If you are visiting Coron, Philippines, do not miss this. The Island escapade tour is one of its kind, ‘relaxing’ and ‘luxurious’, 3 island hopping compared to the ”Coron island tour” where there is lot of swimming and snorkeling involved. To give you an idea of both, the Coron island tour would be more preferred by those adventurers. And this one can be right up your alley if you love beach bumming in the turquoise water and stunning picturesque nature, while sipping yummy tender coconut.
The drill was the same, for all the island trips. Once our booking was confirmed, they picked us up in the morning in a van and dropped off at the jetty.
Along with 15 other people, the captain gave us instructions and the boat took off. Since there were only 3 islands for this trip, we got good amount of time to enjoy and explore all the islands.
Bulog Dos Isand
After a gorgeous 1.5 hour boat ride, the first stop was the Bulog Dos Island. White sandy beaches, clear blue sky and turquoise water, this is the view I would never ever get tired of. We docked our boat and began exploring the island. The thing I loved about these islands was, each of them had a different character. So, no matter how many island tours you go to, each place will be different. This Bulog Dos island had white sandy beach and unique rock formations which gave it very unique character. There was a Two Seasons resort, which you could easily spot form the beach but you cannot go beyond a hill.
The next stop was just after a 10 minute boat ride, long & white sandy, Banana Island. There are some cottages if you like to stay there overnight. There are lot of hammocks and huts also where you can rest and spend some time. By the time we finished exploring the island, it was almost noon and we were hungry. Lunch again, was carried/cooked on the boat, the captain and his crew happily set up a buffet table for us. We bonded over lunch with all the other people of our boat and it was amazing listening to everyone’s story. After lunch I found myself a throne in the middle of the beach and I decided to settle there.
Since these three islands are close to each other, it generally takes 10-15 minutes boat ride to reach. So the third and final stop was, Malcapuya beach. Ah, what a sight it was..! This beach was way longer than the other two and had a completely different vibe. The water was so inviting, I could not stop myself from jumping in. Along with white sand and crystal turquoise water, it had a series of coconut trees as well as some very curved-fallen-half uprooted tree branches. Each and every branch could make a perfect post card. While Rohitt got his post cards, even I got mine, on a fallen coconut tree trunk..!
After spending the whole day at the gorgeous beaches, we were dropped off at our hotel by 5:00 pm and we still had the entire evening to us. Since we were tired, we chilled at the hotel for some time, went out for dinner and planned the adventure for the next day……
