If you're into unwind, chill and tired of Island hopping in Coron, then Ocam-ocam is the place to be, around 1-2hours away from Coron town. . The beach is not really great for swimming, but you can definitely relax here. It is best to rent a Motor so you can go to Cambaya Beach which is right next to it, and explore other areas overlooking the islands up on the Hills. There are a few hotels or cottages to stay at. It is best also to bring some food with you just in case the Sari Sari stores run out of stuff. This place might be boring if you just stay in this place alone though. When here, you can visit the Black Island. Don't stay here if you're into comfortable living however, maybe just for a day tour would be fine.

We went to ocam ocam beach and had a crash with the scooter. My leg was hurt but we met a very kind canadian guy, his name is Rod, he helped und instantly with his first aid kitt. Thank you once more Rod!
He also told us that he will build a resort near to the beach and that the road down to the beach would be improved. When he has finished building i will go there for sure! Such a great friendly guy!

The beach is nice and relaxing but far from coron town. We traveled here on a day that our tours were cancelled from Coron. The trip took at least an hour and a half on motorbike. The road leading up to where you park to go the beach was very difficult to ride the motorbike on and not safe for someone without daily experience riding on these roads. The beach had one restaurant we saw and one shop selling snacks. Not much going on there at all. Good to do if you have nothing at all to do in town. However, wouldn’t recommend motor biking. Our bodies were so tired and sore after being on that thing for several hours. If you go, maybe bring some snacks and be sure to make a day out of it. You could stop at Concepcion falls on the way there or back!

1.5 hours out of Coron Town, yes there is sand, unfortunately you can't swim there. It's about 800m in ankle deep water from the beach stumbling over rocks to the edge of the reef where you can then snorkel. No-one was prepared to trek out there.

My husband and I stayed with family who rent out hats. Mother Lani and son Christian who helps his mother with good English. Their place is about five to ten minutes from middle of the beach where you arrive, turn right, walk pass the pier and you will see two huts in the water front. If you stay the middle of the beach you will see day trippers and could be noisy, but it is so quiet, peaceful and grateful to share their life. Lani is very thoughtful and beautifully decorated hut with comfortable bed with mosquito net, fan, drinking water and coffee every morning. Toilet is shared with everyone around, toilet paper supplied and Lani keeps it clean at all time. It was basic but it was cool and comfortable .That was the best accommodation we stayed in five weeks in Philippines, P500 well spend.
They don't serve food so you have to eat other places, H-Nice Restaurant was closed as low season.
We had most meals at Sunset view home stay. Bedilyn was very kind and we had a good chat every time. Grilled fish was fantastic.
You can buy cold beer from Green shop.

Snorkeling was good by the pier. Also they can take you to Black Island.

We hopped on van from Coron to Salvacion (every hour, p150) and picked up tricycle. Tricycle drivers and even van driver get together and try to get p1500 from us which is a lot even though the road is quit rough. We walked off from them and started to offer p1000 and negotiated to p800.

It's an open beach but it's not ideal for swimming, nothing to see either. If you have other options then skip this place, it's not easy to locate and the road going to this beach is rough and dusty. If we were given the option then (i.e., when we visited), we would definitely skip this and head off directly to Black Island instead.

Ocam Ocam is located 75km from Coron Town. The best solution to artive there is by scooter (500 PHP/day).Only the 4 last kilometers are not very good (avoid the front brake). Otherwise is to leave by van from Coron to Salvation (250PHP) and than by tricycle until Ocam-Ocam (500 PHP).

There are 3 scooter parking in Ocam-Ocam. But if you want park directly at the beach, continue ahead 100m after the 2nd parking. Park the scooter near the smallwood bridge. After 3 or 4 small house, it will possible to park in front of the sea ( entrance free).

At Ocam.Ocam it's possible to sleep in traditional houses (Nipa) for 500 PHP. Same price everywhere. Do not hesitate to check different Nipas. Many don't have comfort room and to take a shower will by "buket".

I recommend Nipas maximum direction North of beach. They are more quiet. At the middle or South of the beach, most van (Calauit Safari Tour) arrive for lunch with many tourists.

All families wil propose you lunch, dinner and island hopping. Menus are not really special and quality fo products are not ever fresh. I ate there for dinner 2 or 3 times.

The best quiet place for Sunset is near the beach restaurant (middle of the beach). I ate everyday there. Best quality food with fresh product and the owners are se welcoming (and so good music). All meals on the menu where available and they propose different specialities every day. 500m afterthe restaurant, there is the 1st resort. 2500 PHP with aircon, than at the end of the beach the second beautiful resort ( 5500 PHP).

Possibility to walk on the small hill after the last resort. Follow the beach until the end, walk 60m on the rock following the sea. You will see 70 steps on the right side. Best beach view sure..

I planned to stay 2 days and finally i stayed during 1 full week. So wonderful place Ocam-Ocam, far of the noise from Coron.

I reccomend to stay minimum 2 or 3 days.

You never know until you visit this beautiful and pristine beach.
Was hesitant initially cos I have never heard of this beach. Read the reviews that it’s so true that if you are looking for a rustic, pristine and not-touristy beach, ocam ocam should be your next vacay!

This is by far the best beach on the western side of the island, at least as far as north as this (we didnt go further). It has fine light golden sand, rather than the white sand of many islands and lovely transparent clean water with rocks and sand. We rode a scooter here on the good cemented road from Coron but you need to be an experienced driver for the last few km of dirt track! It was lovely as it was over the New Year period and even so there there only a couple of other tourists there; a contrast to Coron!
A lady called Label (pronounced Labelle) who speaks good English cooked us a delicious meal of fish, veg and rice accompanied by coconuts to drink then eat! (mobile phone 09265029218). We hired an open wooden structure, called a ‘cottage’ near the beach for 150 or 200 pesos to use as a base to leave our things when swimming, for shade and to eat under at the cool table.
From here you can hire a boat (ask Label whose husband Jim accompanied us on a great day tour to to the lovely island of Deboutanay and Black Island.) The islands off the coast here are almost deserted and so much nicer than those visited on the crowded day tours from Coron. fine light golden sand rather than the white sand of many islands and lovely transparent clean water with rocks and sand.

You can also visit North Cay, Pamalican and Maltatayoc islands (by private boat tour) with stunning beaches but they are nearer Concepcion pier.
