Ditaytayan Island


In the heart of the Philippines’ archipelago, there lies a pristine and lesser-known slice of paradise: Ditaytayan Island. Situated within the splendid Coron, Palawan, this untouched beauty offers an extraordinary experience that combines relaxation, adventure, and the awe-inspiring beauty of nature. This article unveils the wonders of Ditaytayan Island, a must-visit destination for every travel enthusiast.


Immersing in Ditaytayan Island’s Pristine Beaches


One of the significant draws of Ditaytayan Island is its pure white sandy beaches. A world away from the crowded and commercialized beaches, Ditaytayan provides a serene setting where you can bask under the sun, lay on the powdery sands, and listen to the gentle lapping of crystal-clear azure waters against the shore.

Breathtaking Sandbar of Ditaytayan Island


One feature that sets Ditaytayan Island apart from other beaches in Coron, Palawan, is its spectacular sandbar.

Ditaytayan Island is known for its striking sandbar that extends into the clear turquoise waters, providing a unique, breathtaking sight. During low tide, the sandbar becomes even more impressive as it stretches further into the sea, surrounded by shallow waters that allow for leisurely walks amidst the sea.


The sandbar is not just a stunning natural formation, but it also offers an excellent backdrop for photography enthusiasts. Its beauty at different times of the day – from the soft morning light to the mesmerizing sunset hues – makes the Ditaytayan Island sandbar a reason in itself to visit this unique destination in Coron, Palawan.

Exploring Marine Life and Snorkeling


Ditaytayan Island is surrounded by vibrant coral gardens, making it an ideal spot for snorkeling. Coron, Palawan, is renowned for its rich marine biodiversity, and Ditaytayan is no exception. As you plunge into its clear waters, you’ll discover a thriving underwater ecosystem teeming with colorful coral reefs and a multitude of marine species. This snorkeling experience in Ditaytayan Island is indeed a must-try for everyone visiting Coron, Palawan.


Best Time to Visit Ditaytayan Island


The best time to visit Ditaytayan Island in the Philippines (which is part of the Coron Island municipality, Palawan province) usually falls between December and May. This is the dry season in the Philippines and is often recommended as the best time for beach activities and island hopping.


However, bear in mind that even during the dry season, occasional rainfall can occur. The months of March to May are often the hottest, so if you prefer slightly cooler temperatures, plan your visit between December and February.

Keep in mind also that the climate can vary from year to year and it is always a good idea to check the current weather forecast before planning your trip. It’s also important to consider local events, festivals, and tourism peaks when planning your visit to get the most out of your trip.


Remember, as much as possible, adhere to the principle of “Leave No Trace” during your island hopping. Dispose of your trash responsibly, do not touch or step on corals, and avoid feeding or disturbing marine wildlife. Happy Island Hopping!

This is a must to do!!Super ultimate tour is the best with Kayangan and barracuda lake, twin lagoons (my favorite), coral garden (blue fabulous coral) were the best. It’s really worth it to pay for private tour (3500 to 4000 PHP). You will also have to pay for entrance fees (150 to 200PHP by location) and eventually shopping at the market - must do (count 300 for 2 for fish, pork, fruits and vegetables, water).

I was looking for a personalized excursion to the beautiful Gulf of Bacuit.Seeing the comments, I contacted Mel.Very responsive, very efficient and perfect organization.The flight attendants were very friendly and very helpful.And I'm not even talking about the meal on board...a marvel.In all fairness, this excursion will remain an excellent memory and I cannot recommend Mel and his team highly enough.A big thank-you.

This tour went well above all our expectations! I couldn't recommend this enough! The boat crew, captain and tour guide were nothing but amazing, everyone was so kind, helpful and friendly. The crew knew the best spots to visit that weren't overcrowded with tourists, 3 times we were lucky enough to have whole islands to ourselves! It was my partner's birthday while away and everything went above and beyond, bonfire, cake, birthday card, singing and celebrating with us.If you love camping this is definitely a tout you should do, it has been the highlight of our trip!!

Coron is the best place i have ever seen.. picturesque. Beautiful. Peaceful
We booked a 4 days/3 nights private boat trip from Coron to Sibaltan. The organization went very well from the beginning, the owner answered to all my questions, and we were able to choose which islands to visit and where to sleep. The first night we slept in a bungalow in Banana Island, the second we camped in Araw beach and the last we slept in a seafront bungalow builded on a tree in Pical on Iloc Island.The islands in that area are the most beautiful islands I have ever seen, with clear water, lots of coral reef and fishes to see, white sand and almost deserted. The crew was very friendly and polite and they organize every single meal and for camping they give you a tent which was just perfect! This was our highlight in our 2 weeks in the Philippines and I wish I had booked a longer trip. A private trip gives you the freedom to decide where and when to go.
