And this is what I mean by beach in contrast with that of Atuayan where we went the day before.
Kung me advantage si El Nido kay Coron, that's because beaches abound in El Nido. But this one is really a standout ---MALCAPUYA ISLAND.
Going to the beach on a stormy weather has never been this good. And when I said stormy, I really mean stormy. The boat ride from Coron Town which usually takes 1.5 hours on a clear day took us three (3) hours to navigate because of strong waves. Not Calaguas level, read, the "sugal buhay" boat ride to Mahabang Buhangin CALAGUAS ISLAND but almost similar. I was not very nervous though because I know our boatman was careful and experienced. Heavy downpours while we were in the middle of the sea had us all wet even before reaching the island.
Malcapuya Island is located in the Southwest end of Coron Island. I am not sure if it is still categorically part of Coron because it seems closer to the outlying islands of Culion rather than the latter.
Boat dock on a small sandy beach on the Northern part of thr island and from there we walked a few meters to the other side where the main white sand beach of more or less one kilometer in length is located.
I have to remind you again that the weather when we got here was close to bring stormy but this beach is too beautiful to be muted by whatever weather condition. As the sun momentarily peeped through the clouds, I noticed the sand glistening as if greeting us "welcome"!
If I were to get stuck to an island, I want it to be in Malcapuya. White sand, virgin island and the feeling that it is isolated but not too remote makes it an ideal island destination. It got me wondering, if a place could could be this beautiful on a stormy day, what more during summer. The remarks of Cindy, the manager of Patrick& Tezz Guesthouse, the night before we went here, that Malcapuya is better than Boracay certainly has a basis.
