Banana Island, Coron, Palawan

Back to Coron. Captain of our boat decided that (due to low-tide concerns) we should just have our lunch in Banana Island instead of Malcapuya. It was a bittersweet moment to leave but I learned that there are cottages and a small house for rent for those who want to spend the night in Malcapuya. Hmm, maybe next time. :)

Here's my new found traveler friends, Deb and Jay. They just got married and celebrated their honeymoon in Coron. ;)

Banana Island is less than 15 minutes away from Malcapuya. Here's Isha holding on for dear life. Sadly, my sister doesn't know how to swim and has developed a fear from deep waters.

Check out Banana Island's beach front.

Lunch served was good for more than 5 pax. We had grilled chicken, fish and squid, chilli crabs, cucumber salad and watermelon for dessert. Of course we ate using our hands! Check out Jed's left hand in his mouth! Haha. Nabusog kami sa rate na binayad namin sa Nice in Paradise. Sobrang sulit! ;)

Since we had a very heavy lunch, I took a break from swimming and just enjoyed the view of nearby islands.

There's a floating cottage (or whatever you want to call it) nearby. Perfect place for relaxation.

Noticed the change of water color in the photos? The darker shade of blue is the deeper part of the sea. When I say deep, it means 15-20 ft. deep or more. I panicked for a bit because I wasn't informed about the depth so I had to keep my cool and stay relaxed while swimming back to the shore or else I'll probably drown to death. Lesson learned, don't forget to bring your life vest even if you know how to swim! ;)
