Widely regarded as the best for tourists Banol Beach is located is on Coron Island, which is a popular destination for its inland lakes and lagoons. Here you will find paradisiacal white sandy beaches that stretch along the turquoise waters of Coron Bay. The backdrop of limestone cliffs are spectacular and rival much of what you will see in Thailand.

The water at Banol Beach is crystal clear, and you can see brightly colored fish swimming near the shore. On the far right end of the beach you will find the Skeleton Wreck, which is a Japanese ship that the U.S. Navy sunk, along with 10 gunboats and freighters during World War Two. The ship is covered with corals as are the nearby reefs. For this reason the area is popular for divers.

People often stop off here when they are on the Coron Island Hopping tours. It is worth noting there is an entrance fee for this beach, but it isn’t much and is certainly worth it . There are no facilities here, so make sure you come prepared. If you fancy staying a little longer, there are a couple of huts on this beach that can be rented.
