There are many nice beaches to visit while island hopping and Banana Island is one of them. Great water, white sand and great views. Makes it easy to relax and enjoy the views.

Wow... Such a Great place to be for 7 days/nights. In these days we were the only visitors on the Island, i. The area. Great fish, Rice and veggies each day for all meals. I miss these simple days. Water 30degrees and air 30. Balance. 30minutes to walk around the Island. Isolation at its best.
Dogs (on other Islands barking) and waves the only sounds to break up your night. Gorgeous space way back when. Great hosts. Hope the coral is growing back.

I enjoyed taking a dip in the crystal clear water and taking photos around the island, especially in the nice little hammocks scattered around the area.

Banana Island: Swim and snorkel in the clear turquoise waters near the open sea at Banana Island. A popular stop on an island-hoping package, the island features a narrow strip of white sandy beach

My husband and I stayed at Banana Island for five nights. Didn't want to just visit with Island hopping for short time with other people.
Facebook page is run by family member but they don't contact each other, when we arrived they didn't know about our "booking". Showed the conversation but told that's not them.
Also website needs update, price is very different.

It's a private island run by father, son and workers. It was off season and no chef, means dinner was catch by one of the workers Utte (I don't know how to spell, sorry) and however he cooked and we loved it. Fish, vegetable and rice, simply delicious.
Water was clear and no rubbish as they clean the beach all the time. Coral is everywhere right front of your accommodation and you can try other parts of the Island. It is very colorful by coral and lot's of fish. Except the last night, we were the only couple stayed on the island, it was peaceful and relaxing.
They were kind and we enjoyed their company. They have only limited amount of snacks, instant noddles and drinks (yes they have cold beer), recommend to take some food with you. We took some basic food, like fruit, snacks, milk, coffee, tea, water and bread.
We saw boats arrived every day on Island hopping but it was only a short time and didn't bother us, actually we enjoyed observing them.

There were no bananas in the island, but I think the name cake from the color of it's powdery sand. It's the second island we visited as part of an organized tour and this is where we had lunch. There were some hammocks if one is inclined to rest instead of swimming in its crystal clear waters.

Gorgeous. This is the second stop on the island tour out of three. And for me it is the most beautiful beach. Super white soft and clean. Buyong beach is the first stop. Also beautiful and mostly used for picture taking. There is a sandbar to a resort and a small hill for the views. The last stop is Malcapuya Beach. For many the highlight of this trip. Super clear water. As some recommendations say to skip the two first beaches and only do Malcapuya I would advice not to skip. Banana Beach is gorgeous cozy and intimate. The trip to the islands take 1.5 hours or more. And the waters can be choppy so expect to get wet and buy a wet bag.

This was by far my favorite island because of the beach and the snorkling. You don't need a life jacket to snorkel. The beach is very clean and there is plenty of shade if you would like. We were able to spend about an hour there, but I could have spent the day.
