Located on Malcapuya Island near Coron, Malcapuya Beach is everything you imagine a tropical island beach would be. One of the regular destinations on the Island Hopping Tour, Malcapuya is just to the north of the better-known Banana Island. This secluded spot has endless stretches of white sand which wraps around the entire island and the water is as clear as you can imagine.

When you visit Malcapuya Beach, you are surrounded by pristine nature in all her glory. There are only a few families who live on the island, and there is one coconut stand. Otherwise, it is completely undeveloped. However, there are some small island huts on the beach, and you can rent one to stay overnight. They have a mattress on the floor and open air showers.

The island has no electricity, so you will not be able to charge your phone. But that’s a good thing - this is a spot to go when you want to escape the world. You will find peace and solitude here. The breathtaking views of the clear blue water and white sands below are incredible, and the water is warm and inviting.

Malcapuya Beach is a truly unforgettable experience.
