Banana Island & Malcapuya Island

Day 3 Gracey's Birthday! 

I woke up early and to my horror it was raining. I never got to see the sunrise. After breakfast, we took a dip in the sea. The rain stopped for some time. But on mid day, it rained hard and the wind picked up. The island owner told us that it wasn't safe to go to Culion so we just continued  to visit the nearby islands. The girls enjoyed sipping fresh coconut juice while at the island.
Banana Island only uses generator & solar power for electricity. Even the fresh water is scarce. Rain water is filtered and used to flush the toilets. In our huts we were provided with mosquito nets.

 We went to Malcapuya Island; it has a vast beige beach. What's common with the sand in Coron is that there are bits of pink/red corals.

 We dropped by Bulog Dos, which is a very small island with marble formations. A sad thing is that the islands are already owned by several resort , so in due time they won't be as pristine as they are now. We headed back to Coron Town that afternoon, the bay is very calm. That night we celebrated Grace's birthday at Bistro Coron, enjoyed pizza & Carbonara.
